A New Year Punch

Looking at Cooking with Mildred Swift

  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 pint grape juice
  • 2 cups orange juice
  • 1 cup lemon juice
  • 6 (7 ounce) bottles 7-Up°
  • 2 trays frozen 7-Up° “Ice” cubes

Several hours before the party, simmer sugar and water together for 5 minutes. Cool. Chill fruit juices and 7-Up°. Pour additional 7-Up° into 2 ice cube trays and freeze. At serving time, combine sugar syrup and fruit juices in punch bowl. Slowly pour in 7-Up°. Add 7-Up° “ice cubes”. Garnish with lemon slices, if desired. Makes about 25 (4 ounce) servings.

(Note: 1/2 pint Burgundy my be used in place of grape juice, if desired.)
