Tis the season to be jolly
To spread the holiday cheer, I had hosted a holiday party last Friday with bite size food and plenty of alcohol. There was punch, puff pastry spirals, mini quiche, whiskey balls, wonton cups, mini pizza's, frosted cranberries, cheese tray and panettone. To be able to make all this food was another reason for the party as well. The easiest among these was the punch and I am going to start with that. I had this punch at a bridal shower and was an isntant favorite. It takes just minutes to make and it is good with or without alcohol.
1/2 gallon Orange sorbet
1 (2 litre bottle) Lemon-lime soda or gingerale
Orange slices for garnish (optional)
Vodka as per taste
Scoop out the sorbet in a large punch bowl. Add chilled lemon-lime soda or gingerale to the sorbet. (You can add orange slices at this point to float on the punch. I didn't do this). Make the punch about 10-15 minutes before the quests arrive to allow the sorbet to thaw into the soda. Add the vodka as desired. You may not add the vodka to the punch and serve it on the side :)
