Description

This is a non-alcoholic fruit punch, similar to the Texas Twister lemonades sold at fairs. It isn’t exact but it is very close.

Ingredients

  • 6 whole Oranges
  • 6 whole Lemons
  • 6 whole Limes
  • ⅓ cups Grenadine
  • ⅓ cups Maraschino Cherry Syrup
  • ¼ cups Granulated Sugar
  • 4 cups Ice
  • 8 cups, 7 tablespoons, ¾ teaspoons, ⅓ pinches Sprite Lemon Lime Soda
  • 12 whole Maraschino Cherries

Preparation

Wash all of the fruit, with peels still on. Juice 5 of the oranges, 5 of the lemons, and 5 of the limes and pour juices into a blender with grenadine, cherry syrup, and sugar. Blend on high for about 30 seconds.

Place the ice in a large pitcher and pour the Sprite and the juice mixture over the ice and stir. Cut the remaining fruits in half and then cut each half into 6 pieces, put 1 wedge of each plus a maraschino cherry in the bottom of 12 glasses. Pour punch over fruit and serve.

This is a tart lemonade. If you want to make it sweeter add 1/2 cup cherry syrup instead of 1/3, and add 1/2 cup sugar instead of 1/4. If it is too strong for your tastes add extra ice, use club soda instead of lemon lime soda and leave out the grenadine.
