For a hot summer day, try our fizzy and refreshing orange drink. Made from orange juice concentrate and ginger ale, this bubbly mocktail is perfect at outdoor gatherings and makes a great addition to a brunch spread. If you need an easy recipe for a non-alcoholic beverage, look no further, as our no-hassle take on an orange refreshment is easily mixed and poured. Made with easy-to-find ingredients, the orange fizz might help you put to good use the orange concentrate that has been sitting in your freezer for a few weeks. Add some ice cubes and bring out your tall glasses. A few pretty slices of fresh orange can transform this simple drink into a lovely offering. Serve at bridal and baby showers for an alcohol-free option, or even at kids' parties.
Make a pretty party punch by serving the orange fizz in a large punch bowl and adding slices of oranges, limes, lemons, and grapefruit plus fresh cranberries and mint leaves for a vibrant and colorful touch. To make a successful large batch be aware of a few things. First, wait until the last possible minute to mix the drink. The ginger ale might go flat if it's sitting in the bowl for too long. Secondly, use a bowl that's large enough to carry the drink, the ice, and all the additional fruit. Finally, use big ice cubes. Small cubes melt quickly, especially in hot weather, so prepare in advance by freezing water in bigger molds. It's not a bad idea to freeze water in bread tins to make monster ice cubs to keep the punch cold without diluting it too much or too fast.
For a more adult version, add a shot of vodka, rum, or gin into each glass before pouring the fizzy drink on top. Double or triple the amounts for a party punch, but keep consistent ratios of beverage to alcohol. Ideally, a party punch should follow a 1:4 ratio of alcohol to fizzy drink, which means per every 1.5 ounce shot you should be adding 6 ounces of fizzy drink, plus some abundant ice. You can adjust the ratio to make the punch less strong, but that ratio should make a tasty cocktail. Keep in mind that because of its sweetness it goes down easily, so reminding your guests of the alcohol content is not a bad idea.
