Grape Glory Punch

A sixties drink for a crowd.

A 1962 (pay-per-view, so I can’t link it) edition of the Boston Globe references this as being a favorite of little league teams. Somehow, I suspect adding sugar to any fruit juice would produce the same effect.

This recipe also appeared in the October 1963 edition of Life & Health: The National Health Journal.
