- 1 (900 ml) bottled Apple juice
- 1 (900 ml) bottled White grapes juice
- 1 bottle (750ml) any sparkling spring water. I use Perrier.
- One Apple. Half diced
(not pealed) and other half pealed and grated.
- One Orange diced.
- Six Strawberries, chopped.
- Juice from one large Lemon.
- 10-15 Mint leaves washed thoroughly. Very finely chopped.
- Ice cubes enough to keep the punch bowel chilled. Do not put any ice
inside the drink.
A well known drink but my recipe slightly differs from what
you get in the restaurants. This drink can be served on cocktail parties and
also goes very well with special dinners. Server it with cocktail snacks or
with main course at the dinner table. Remember it is a special drink so
needs to be served in special Champaign glasses from your Crystal ware
collection. The recipe is to make a full punch bowel enough for 12 adults.
All the juices and water needs to be kept in the Refrigerator
till the time required for preparation. Add Lemon juice and chopped mint
leaves in a mixing bowl. Use a spoon to whisk it for like 5 minutes. Pour
this mixture in the punch bowl. Add diced and grated Apple, Orange and
chopped Strawberries. Pour Apple and Grapes juice. Do not open the bottle of
the sparkling water till you are ready to serve. Now keep this mixture in
the Refrigerator for at least two hours. The best way to serve this drink is
to hold the punch bowl with Ice cubes. I do it by putting the punch in a
basket that is full of Ice cubes. If this sort of arrangement is not
possible for you then keep the drink and the water bottle in your freezer
for at least 1 hour. Do not put ice in the drink it will ruin the flavour of
the drink. At the time of serving get them out and pour the sparkling water
into the already made mixture of juices, stir and serve.
