recipe: holiday punch

8C cranberry juice
3C citrus vodka
2C ginger ale
2C frozen cranberries
1C soda water
garnish: mint sprigs

Combine vodka and cranberry juice in a punch bowl and give it a good stir. 

Add a few cups of ice, ginger ale, soda water and 2 cups frozen cranberries.

Garnish with mint and enjoy.

Adam’s hints:
—instead of clear ice, make some cranberry mint ice cubes by adding fresh or frozen cranberries, fresh mint to water in ice cube trays.
