BEVERAGE "Grandma's Holiday Punch"

The perfect taste for a Holiday or Brunch! Everyone always asked my Grandmother for the recipe to this sparkling punch!

Ingredients:

4 bags of Lipton Tea (decaff if you prefer)

4 cups of water for the Tea

1/2 cup Sugar

1 gallon Orange Juice

2 liters Ginger Ale

2 cans of sliced Pineapple

1 1/2 cups Rum (if desired) or 4 tablespoons of Vanilla

Directions:

Add 4 bags of Lipton Tea to 4 glasses of hot water. Allow tea to steep, remove tea bags, then add 1/2 cup sugar to mixture and allow to cool. Once the tea has cooled, combine with one bottle of Ginger Ale, Orange Juice, and Pineapple (including the juice from the can). Once combined, add part of the mixture to 2 round Tupperware containers and freeze. Refrigerate the rest. Before the party starts, add the refrigerated portion to a punch bowl. Remove the frozen container from the freezer and run warm water over the container. Pop out the frozen mixture and place in the center of the punchbowl so it will keep the punch cold without diluting it. Add the last bottle of Ginger Ale, a splash of Rum, or Vanilla and stir!

**Like Grandma, use what you have on hand. If you have a Rhubarb plant outside, use the stalks as a stirring stick!
