If a recipe says "untested"...

We want to post scans of all the original recipes so everyone in our family can enjoy them even if we haven't gotten around to testing each one in our modern kitchen. As we test each recipe, we will add our notes and photos to the recipes we do test and remove the note "untested" in the title. If you make one of the untested recipes, take a photo of the finished product and send us a note to let us know of your experience so we may include those in the recipes as well.

Sparkle Punch (untested)

This is a recipe that I think is in Grammy's handwriting. I suspect this recipe predates 1952 because of the ingredient "cold tea". Grammy did not consume tea after 1952 when she (along with her husband and two older daughters) was baptized into The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints whose members do not partake of tea or coffee.

Makes 4 quarts

  • Juice of 10 lemons
  • Juice of 10 oranges
  • 3 cups sugar syrup
  • 3 cups cold tea [I would substitute this]
  • 2 cups cold water
  • 3 cups ginger ale
  • Large block of ice [depending on the size of your serving container]

  1. Mix juices, syrup, tea, and water well
  2. Add ginger ale just before serving
  3. Pour over a large block of ice

Pin It!
