New Year’s Eve Punch 1974-75

Time to plan ahead for the party?

Here’s a similar (but cheaper) version from the May 29, 1965 edition of the Winnipeg Free Press:

Sparkling Wine Punch

2 lb. package frozen strawberries
1 cup sugar
Four 26-oz. bottles sparkling rose wine
Two 12-oz. cans frozen lemonade concentrate
Block of Ice
2 quart bottles soda water
Orange and lemon slices

Place strawberries in large mixing bowl; sprinkle with sugar. Pour on one bottle rose wine. Cover. Let stand at room temperature one hour. Strain. Pour into large punch bowl. Stir in undiluted frozen concentrate. Add block of ice. Pour in soda water down side of bowl. Add remaining rose wine. Garnish with orange and lemon slices. Yield: 30 five-ounce punch cups.

From the box of F.J. from Sun City, Arizona. Some cards suggest a family history in Missouri and Kansas.
