6 cups water
2 cups sugar
1 (48 ounce) can pineapple juice
1 (48 ounce) can grapefruit juice
1 (8 ounce) jar maraschino cherries, undrained
2 cups gin
1 (33 7/8 ounce) bottle ginger ale, chilled
Combine the water and sugar in large saucepan. Bring to boil and stir until dissolved; cool. Combine sugar mixture, juices and cherries, chill. In a punch bowl combine the sugar mixture with the gin and ginger ale just before serving.
This punch packs a punch so drink sparingly.
