I can’t drink alcohol this Christmas and New Years Eve (being Pregnant)… in fact, I can’t drink much at all. My list of approved beverages has diminished somewhat, to water and soda water, since being diagnosed with gestational Diabetes – temporary diabetes whilst pregnant! So for all those that can drink punch … this is for you!
To provide a ‘special’ beverage this festive season for those who don’t drink or are pregnant, I have dug out the punch recipe from Truffleduck (where we were married). I didn’t try the punch on our wedding day, however one of our ‘foody’ guests requested the recipe afterwards – so it must have been good.
2 litres orange juice
2 litres pineapple juice
2 litres apricot nectar
A half bottle of lime cordial and half a bottle of lemon cordial
1/3 of a can of passionfruit pulp
2 bottles dry ginger 1.25 litres
2 bottles soda water 1.25 litres
Lots of ice
Naturally any punch can be ‘spiced’ up a little with the addition of vodka, or any other fruit flavoured alcohol.
Happy fruit punching this festive season.
I also like to add some fresh fruit to my punch – try some grapes (frozen ones are great), watermelon (balls look good), and sliced strawberries. The easy way to add fruit is to place a can of fruit salad in there!
