For a more tart flavor in this delicious non-alcoholic punch substitute cranberry juice for the cran-apple juice.
I made this for my Christmas party and it was a big hit. Here's a tip though, double the recipe if you are making it for more than 6 people. Also, leave a bottle of rum next to the bowl for people who would like to add a litte "naughty" to their punch. That way, you don't have to make two whole batches. Another FYI, if you have leftovers, it keeps well in the refrigerator for 4-5 days. Just add more gingerale to give it the fizz each time. It still tastes great and it is a nice break from the typical soda or juice that you always have around the house. - 21 Dec 2008 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
This recipe is great! If you are looking for a party punch that has a little hint of Christmas spice this is what you are looking for. I just had a Christmas party with about 30 people and EVERYONE had at least two cups. I made a "naughty" batch and a "nice" batch by adding Rum to the naughty batch. I had to make seconds and thirds of the naughty batch. It is great with and without alcohol!! I didnt change anything except I doubled the recipe! This was a great find and I recommend it to anyone having a Holiday party this year!!!! - 17 Dec 2007 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
What a giant hit! I just served this today for my Sunday school class and this is all they drank. I had coffee and OJ too, but this is all they touched. I highly recommend it. I made an ice ring and put cranberries in the ice. As the ice melted the cranberries floated in the punch and it was even more festive! Thanks Edna - you're a life saver. Several people wanted the recipe. - 14 Dec 2008 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
