We love to swap citrus-based recipes. Here are some all-time favorites of ours, directly from our groves (and our grandmas).


Orange Holiday Punch

Punch and holidays go together. Just like Florida’s Natural® orange, apple and cranberry juices. Here’s a great way to celebrate with a drink that’s fun and festive.

Orange Holiday Punch

Ingredients

  • 4 quarts water
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 2 quarts Florida's Natural® Orange Juice
  • 1 & 1/2 quarts Florida’s Natural® Apple Juice
  • 1 quart Florida’s Natural® Cranberry Juice Cocktail
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup lime juice

Ice Ring Ingredients

  • Orange slices
  • Lime slices
  • Fresh cranberries
  • Sprigs of fresh mint

Instructions

  1. Bring water and sugar to a boil. Let cool and then combine with other ingredients. Stir well and chill for at least 2 hours before serving. Makes about 2 gallons of punch. For a festive added touch, float a decorative ice ring and a quart of vanilla ice cream on top of the punch.
  2. To make an ice ring, arrange orange and lime slices, fresh cranberries, and sprigs of fresh mint in the bottom of a ring mold. Add only enough water to cover the fruit and freeze until just solid. Then fill the rest of the mold with cold water and freeze until fully solid. To remove from mold, dip briefly in warm water and then gently invert into punch bowl.
