Ginger Ale Citrus Cooler

Total Time

Prep: 10 min. + cooling


6 cups

We usually call this drink "mock champagne" because it's fizzy and fruity but not overly sweet. This pretty pick-orange punch is one that we often enjoy with company.—Marie Hattrup, The Dalles, Oregon


  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 2/3 cup water
  • 1 cup grapefruit juice
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 3-1/2 cups ginger ale, chilled
  • 3 tablespoons maraschino cherry juice


  1. In a large saucepan, cook and stir the sugar and water over low heat until sugar is dissolved. Bring to a boil; boil for 5 minutes. Cool.
  2. Stir in grapefruit and orange juices. Cover and refrigerate until chilled. Just before serving, stir in the ginger ale and cherry juice.
