Hi

Posted here for traffic.

I am going to make fruit punch (with ginger ale, lemonade and juice), but I don't want to use canned fruits as I bought a heap of fresh fruits.  Is there anything from this list that I shouldn't use?

Strawberry
Mango
Apple
Pear
Nectarine
Grape
Lychee
Watermelon

Thanks.

I wouldn't put all of them in together.  Maybe 2 or 3 in each.

Watermelon juice goes well in punch with maybe a bit cut up mixed in.

Same for an apple punch - maybe an apple and mango combination?

I love fruit punch ours use to have sparkling apple juice, lemonade and a tin of that tropical fruit juice. Then lots of ice and strawberries and some mint leaves.

I think ou cold use any of those fruits but as PP said maybe one or two at a time so as not to make it fruitsalad.

You could do ginger melon balls with the watermelon.. They are nice.

Freeze the grapes, then put them in.

Slice the strawberry up and put I ice cube trays (use some lemonade or soda or juice instead of water)
Saves watering it down.

I would not use nectarine.

Mint leaves are a must.

I'm making some tomorrow with sparkling apple juice, lemonade, strawberries, blueberries and mint. And I'm adding some lemonade  ice cubes in the shape of gingerbread men!
