Express the juice from a can of grated pineapple and from six lemons and three oranges. Strain together into a bowl. Add a pint jar of preserved cherries and the same of strawberries. Sweeten to taste and let all stand together for three hours. When you are ready to serve the punch, pour into the bowl two quarts of ice water and a quart of pounded ice. Serve in punch glasses. You may, if you like, stir in with the ice a bottle of good claret.
This is not an inexpensive beverage. But the quantity here given is for a large party. I can testify to its deliciousness when it is sipped under green apple boughs upon an unseasonably hot afternoon.
