Mom gave me this recipe for the first party I ever hosted.  I hadn’t really planned on having a lot of food, I was a college student.  But Mom had more experience. The gathering was a success, and I think so was the punch.  Remember, the drinking age was lower then and our acceptance of sugar higher….

4 cups cranberry juice cocktail
1 1/2 cups sugar
4 cups pineapple or grapefruit juice
2 quarts of chilled ginger ale

Dissolve sugar in cranberry juice, add the chilled pineapple juice and ginger ale.

1 cup vodka
2 cups crushed pineapple to decorate center

Put frozen fruit in center or make mold:

Fill 1/4 of mold with colored water, add sliced orange & lemon and cherries (maraschino of course) and fill the remaining with cold water. Freeze.
