    Hmmm...its been a while and everyone has their own secret ingredient...

    Start with one of those cans of fruit juice - I think they are Golden Circle brand - anyone know the ones I mean?
    Then ginger ale
    Lemonade
    chopped up fruit
    ice

    there you have it, a simple punch....

    If you want an alcoholic punch, Stones Ginger Wine is my secret ingredient - shhh! Its like the 11 herbs and spices!

    I was looking for some punch recipes back in January. The thread is here.

    i ended up using one i made up from all the suggestions

    1.25l lemonade
    1.25l ginger ale
    1 x large can fruit salad in juice
    1.5l pineapple juice
    cut up fresh fruit which i froze to help keep the punch cool -
    orange slices
    grapes
    kiwi fruit
    strawberries
    Shredded mint on sprinkled on top

    It was really yummy and i got loads of comments - i found this amount fit perfectly into my punch bowl but in the end i made 2 batches

    I cheat. I buy the big tin of golden circle punch.
    I think it's just tropical juice with chunky bits of fruit already in it.
    Then I just add lemonade.
    & vodka if I want alcohol
    or Malibu. Gives it a coconutty flavour.
    Yum.... I want some now.

    I put some cold tea in as well... sometimes just black tea, sometimes a fruit-infused one. Delicious.

    something that we always do is grab the cans of fruit salad (in natural juice) and put them in the freezer - means that when they're in the punch, you're not watering it down with ice

    We just usually put whatever is around the place, pick a few "neutral" softdrinks, some OJ & the fruit salad - plus you can add alkamahol to it at any stage.

    For a truely alkamaholic punch, drain the fruit juice from the fruit salad, fill it with alkamahol and freeze that alkamahol soaked fruit is *always* fun
