Summer is here and while I hate the heat, I do love the food and beverages that get served at get togethers with friends. I’m actually allergic to pineapple (which is awful for someone who was raised in Hawai’i) but this drink tastes so good that I’ll have a few sips and hope it doesn’t kill me.
I’m still not dead.
So, make your own pitcher and wow your friends at your next social gathering. They don’t have to know that it was so simple to make!
Sparkling Orange Punch
2 cups orange juice, no pulp
2 cups pineapple juice
2 liters lemon-lime soda (not diet or sugar free versions)
1/3 cup sugar (optional)
In large pitcher, combine orange juice, pineapple juice, and lemon juice.
Stir until well combined and place in refrigerator until chilled.
When ready to serve, add chilled lemon-lime soda to juice and stir gently.
Pour into glass with ice and garnish with orange slice.
Superhero Tip: This is a tart drink and requires the sugar in the soda to make it sweet. You can add extra sugar until it is as sweet as you desire.
Second Superhero Tip: Serve this in a martini glass because those are fun to sip from!
