Refreshing and festive, this punch combines fresh mint and pineapple for a special party treat.
• 1 cup fresh mint, coarsely chopped
• 8 cups pineapple juice
• 1 orange, sliced thin
• 1 liter ginger ale or ginger beer
1. Combine mint, pineapple juice and orange slices in a large container. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours. This releases the essential oils from the mint into the rest of the beverage.
2. Just before serving, add ginger ale or ginger beer.
3. Serve in punch glasses with ice.
