Blood Orange Berry Punch

Prep/Total Time: 15 minutes
Yield: 8 servings (2 quarts)

1 package (12 ounces) frozen unsweetened raspberries, thawed
1 3/4 cups blood orange juice (about 7 medium oranges)
2 cans (6 ounces each) unsweetened pineapple juice, chilled
4 cans (12 ounces each) diet ginger ale, chilled
1 medium blood orange, thinly sliced, optional

Mash raspberries; strain, reserving juice and discarding seeds. Just before serving, combine the raspberry juice, orange juice, and pineapple juice. Stir in ginger ale. Garnish with orange slices if desired.

Tips and Tricks
If you don't want to juice the oranges yourself, many stores carry blood orange juice in the bottle. Check on the aisle with non-refrigerated juices.
How Kids Can Help
Mash the raspberries, mix the juices.
