My mom’s best friend, Dorothy DeMayo, made this punch every summer for our roof-top BBQs in the 60-70′s. All ingredients must be the cheapest ones you can find.
1 quart of vodka
1 large can of crushed pineapple
1 small jar of maraschino cherries in red dye #3
2 sm. cans of frozen orange juice
2 sm. cans of frozen pineapple-grapefruit juice
2 sm. cans of frozen pink lemonade
2 packages of frozen sliced strawberries
2 qts. ginger ale
Mix the first six items into the largest pot you can find (since no one had punch bowls). Add the frozen strawberries like blocks of ice. Add the ginger ale when ready to use. Keep ladling the punch into cups until it’s all gone. Fight over the strawberries and don’t forget the kids!
