#3343 - Christmas Wreath Punch

(by Shirley McNevich)

1 jar red maraschino cherries (drained)
1 jar green maraschino cherries (drained)
2 - 3oz. boxes cherry Jell-O
2 cups boiling water
2 - 6oz. cans frozen lemonade concentrate
8 cups cold Ocean Spray cranberry juice cocktail
6 cups cold water
2 - 2 liter bottles ginger ale (cold)

In a round Jell-O mold add the drained red and green maraschino cherries. Slowly pour water into the mold until the cherries are completely covered, then freeze the mold overnight. The next day in a very large bowl add both boxes of cherry Jell-O and the boiling water--stir until mixed. Add both cans of frozen lemonade--stir until melted and smooth. Add 8 cups cold cranberry juice cocktail and 6 cups water--stir well. Remove the jell-o mold from the freezer, run a little water on it and remove the cherry mold--place the cherry mold in the center of a large punch bowl (cherry side up). Slowly pour the punch mixture over the cherry mold. Once all of the punch is in the punch bowl, add 1 bottle of ginger ale at a time (to your taste).
