glass of champagne



This a great refreshing drink for those that do not drink alcoholic beverages.  I traditionally made this champagne for my kids. This drink can be served to celebrate any and all festive occasions. I traditionally celebrated New Years with mock champagne, chitterlings, cold slaw, candied yams, hot water corn bread and black eyed pies.

2/3 cup sugar, 2/3 cup water, 1 cup pink grapefruit juice, ½ cup orange juice, 3 tablespoons grenadine syrup, 1 (28 oz.) bottle ginger ale.

Combine sugar and water in a saucepan over low heat; stir until sugar is completely dissolved.  Bring to a boil and allow to cook for about 10-minutes.  Cool.  Add sugar water to juices.  Chill add grenadine and ginger ale just before serving.
