I look forward to this drink and a hammock every summer.
- * 2 cups water
- * 1/2 cup sugar
- * 2 (1 inch) pieces crystallized ginger
- * 4 cinnamon sticks
- * 3 cups orange juice
- * 1 cup pineapple juice
- * 1/2 cup lemon juice
- * 1 liter lemon-lime flavored carbonated beverage
In a sauce pan, combine water, sugar, crystallized ginger and cinnamon sticks. Bring to a boil and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside to cool.
Pour syrup into a pitcher. Add orange, pineapple and lemon juice. Chill in refrigerator. When ready to serve, pour into a punch bowl and slowly add the lemon-lime soda.
I found it tastes best if you let it sit for a day or two.
