What every wedding day needs-- an easy, elegant, light, refreshing wedding punch recipe. It's golden in more ways than one, and easily adaptable from non-alcoholic punch to champagne punch.
Bride, caterer, or "master of the feast," the last thing you want
is another headache. But, truth be told, you don't have to wait for a
wedding to serve this headache-less punch.
Very simple, very forgiving, always a favorite.
1 64-ounce bottle white grape juice
1 64-ounce bottle unsweetened pineapple juice
2 liters (@ 2 quarts) grapefruit soda or ginger ale
Chill all the ingredients thoroughly. Combine the fruit juices in a punch bowl. Pour in the grapefruit soda or ginger ale and stir gently. Add an ice ring, if desired.
Makes about 48 servings. For a 3-hour party or reception, your guests will typically drink 3 to 5 4-ounce servings of punch. Taking the middle road, 4 servings each, this recipe serves 12.
For 50 guests:
Purchase 4 bottles white grape juice, 4 bottles of pineapple juice and 8 liters of ginger ale or grapefruit soda
For 100 guests:
Use 8 bottles white grape juice, 8 bottles of pineapple juice, and 16 liters (about 4 1/4 gallons or 17 quarts) ginger ale or grapefruit soda.
Double the amounts as necessary.
Option: Champagne Wedding Punch
Substitute 2 750-ml bottles of champagne or sparkling wine for the soda pop and use sweetened pineapple juice. Prepare as above and serve immediately.
(Anything bubbly should always be added just before serving so that it does not go flat.)
Makes about 45 servings; serves 10 guests or more.
