Focused on Health - May 2012

Want to offer a festive alternative to alcohol at your next gathering? Serve one of these punch recipes. Both provide plenty of fruity flavor, fizz and cancer-fighting vitamins and nutrients for just a fraction of the calories and sugar found in most alcoholic beverages.

citrus recipe punchThis recipe packs a hefty antioxidant punch. The grapes and grape juice provide a powerful dose of resveratrol — the same cancer-preventing antioxidant in red wine — with none of alcohol’s drawbacks. And, the orange juice and lemon juice in this recipe gives you a generous amount of vitamin C.


1 bottle (46 oz.) 100% grape juice
1 bottle (25 oz.) sparkling apple-grape juice
4 to 6 cups sparkling spring water
1 to 1 and 1/2 cups 100% orange juice
2 to 4 tbsp. freshly squeezed lemon juice
4 thin lemon slices
4 thin orange slices
2 cups frozen grapes


Make sure all beverages are cold. Pour grape juice, sparkling apple grape juice, sparkling spring water, orange juice and lemon juice into large punch bowl. Add ice, if desired.  Top with lemon slices, orange slices and grapes.
