Tipsy Tuesday with a Punch!

Happy Holidays to you & yours! If you're like most of us, you can use a coping mechanism - or two - to get through the hustle & bustle. Have I got one for you!

This punch is sure to [unknowingly?] lift holiday spirits during your dysfunctional [or highly functional] family celebration befitting of the season.
Holidaze Punch
What you need:
1 ice ring [yes, yes - use your favorite mold for this one, just fill it on party morning & freeze!]
40 ounces bottle grape juice
48 ounces can pineapple juice
2 liter bottle of ginger ale
2 oranges
2 limes
1 fifth [yes!] of your favorite vodka

What you need to do:
Slice oranges & limes into thin rounds - set aside [the fruit, not you]. Place ice ring in bottom of punch bowl, add juices - then ginger ale and VODKA! Float orange & lime slices and serve.

This is traditionally a Mardi Gras punch - so it ought to deliver just the zing you need to survive any host of family functions.


  1. Think I'll keep a pitcher in the fridge to get me through the next week. Sounds zesty.

  2. I'd just switch it around a bit...40 oz of gin...48 oz of rum, 2 liter bottle of ginger ale, oranges, limes...splash of grape and pineapple juice and then the 1/5 of vodka. Why be standing for the holidays...

  3. This sounds perfect! Just what I need after wrapping so many presents so badly...
