Dressed-Up Punch

Holiday drink #25 in Food Network Magazine's 50 Holiday Drinks booklet: Shirley Temple Punch.

The Shirley Temple Punch (# 25 in Food Network Magazine’s 50 Holiday Drinks insert) is a kid-friendly favorite that can easily be dressed up with a festive ice float:

Layer sliced oranges and maraschino cherries in a 10-inch Bundt pan.  Cover with 3 to 4 cups of water and freeze until completely set.  Run cold water over the Bundt pan to help release the ice ring.  Place in the bottom of your serving bowl and top with punch.

If you’re serving adults, stir in some bourbon, gin or vodka for a spiked refreshment (they’ll still love the ice ring!).

Shirley Temple Punch from 50 Holiday Drinks

Mix 5 cups ginger ale, 2 cups orange juice and 1/2 cup grenadine in a punch bowl. Add sliced oranges and maraschino cherries. Serve over ice.
