Tonight we celebrated Christmas. Yet again, Adrienne O'Callaghan cooked a fine meal from Delia's Happy Christmas. This year for the first time, we presented Roast Goose stuffed with Apples & Prunes in Armagnac. The evening began with Pianist Paul Keeling playing Christmas carols, and I made a punch. The recipe came from Punch Bowls and Pitcher Drinks by Jeanne Kelley & Sarah Tenaglia.
Cranberry-Ginger Punch - Serves 8. People asked for seconds.
1 1/4 cups Gin
1 - 12 ounce can frozen cranberry juice cocktail concentrate ( I used a jar of Cranberry Pomegranate juice)
2/3 cup fresh lime juice
2 teaspoons grated peeled fresh ginger
3 cups chilled sparkling water
Mix together, add ice-cubes if desired, I made cranberry and lime cubes, meant to put cranberries in, but forgot.
