I was in charge of the punch last weekend for a Baby shower (hadn't made punch in years). Thinking what flavor I was going to make for the event, and some I've had in the passed, this is the all time traditional favorite that people hardly make anymore, and it's the best flavored punch I think. It was a hit!
1 pkg. cherry kool-aid
2 qts. water
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 can(Lg) pineapple juice
1 (6oz.) can frozen lemonade
1 (6oz.) can frozen orange juice
1 (2 liter) bottle ginger ale (cold).
Mix all ingredients except ginger ale, chill. Right before serving, add cold ginger ale. I also froze a ice ring to keep it cold when serving.
