Fruit Punch | Photo by Randolph Graham

Here’s an old school summer cooler that is sure to wet your whistle on a hot summer day. I’ve been making it and serving it to kids of all ages for over 30 years. Good addition to your traditional beverages at your next barbecue.



6 ounce can frozen orange juice concentrate (thawed)

6 ounce can frozen lemonade (thawed)

1 quart chilled apple juice (or cider)

2 quarts chilled ginger ale

1 pint orange sherbet (optional)



Combine the first 4 ingredients in a large punch bowl with a capacity of approximately 128 ounces. Spoon orange sherbet on top of punch (if using) and serve immediately.
