Sparkling Fruit Punch

This is from Vegetarian Celebrations by Nava Atlas.  I’ve made this many times and it is always very popular.  I make half a recipe for 12 people.

  • 3 limes (1 sliced, the other 2 just the squeezed juice)
  • 3 oranges (1 sliced, the other 2 just the squeezed juice)
  • 3 T sugar
  • 3 qts. cold cranberry juice (100% fruit juice is best and usually includes apple and grape)
  • 750 ml. cold sparkling water or champagne

Mix it all up in a punch bowl just before guests arrive.

Be sure to dissolve the sugar.  I usually do all the heavy stirring before I add the fizzy stuff, and then give it just a quick mix.  It’s still good when it goes flat since the cranberry juice (I guess) gives it some bite.
