While I plan on drinking my weight in champagne this Friday, I thought this would be a nice drink to serve for kids as well as any guests preferring a non-alcoholic cocktail. This was one of the recipes my mom included in her recipe book. If serving to kids I recommend the white grape juice to avoid stains from an inevitable spill.
1 quart (4 c.) orange juice, chilled
1 1/2 c. purple or white grape juice, chilled (avoid red grape juice as it will discolor when combined w/ the orange juice.)
1 liter bottle of ginger ale, chilled
2 c. ice cubes
2 c. assorted sliced fruit (anything goes – apples, oranges, lemons, pineapple, peaches, strawberries)
Fresh sprigs of mint
- In a large bowl or pitcher stir together the chilled orange and grape juices.
- Add ginger ale and gently stir. Next add the ice and fruit.
- Pour into glasses and garnish with a sprig of mint.
