I just made this punch for my daughter's Strawberry Shortcake party. Adults and kiddies both enjoyed it.

1 cup frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed
10 ounces frozen strawberry daiquiri mix concentrate, thawed
4 cups cold water
1 bottle (750 ml) sparkling white grape juice, chilled
ice cubes

1. In a punch bowl combine thawed concentrates. Add 4 cups cold water; stir to combine.

2. Gently add grape juice, but do not stir. Serve immediately over ice. If desired, garnish with strawberries and orange wedges.

Serves 12

Grown-Up Option: May use champagne in place of sparkling white grape juice.
