Krista made the cookies and I made the punch for my Artist’s Reception. I wanted red punch for the holiday season (and because red is my favorite color). I got out my mother’s Hall County (Neb.) Extension Cookbook and found this recipe from Mrs. Frederick Pfell. Of course, we amended it to suit ourselves.
1 large can frozen orange juice concentrate
1 large can frozen pineapple juice concentrate
juice of 2 lemons
1 3/4 cups sugar
2 quarts water (less if using ice)
1 package cherry Kool-Aid
1/2 t. cherry flavoring
1 T. maraschino cherry juice
drops of red food coloring
Add all but cherries and stir together. If possible, make frozen punch ring ahead of time. Float some maraschino cherries and orange slices in punch as garnish.
Enjoy! We did.
