Directions:
Ice Cubes - Make "the day before" serving.
Using 2 ice cube trays...add a pinapple chunk
with equal amts. of syrup and water to cover the pineapple in each cubical of one tray and in the other, a marashino cherry with equal amts. of syrup and water to cover the cherry. Freeze.
I refrigerate the left over fruits and syrup and later make more ice cubes, as they are great to have on hand to add to lemonade or other drinks of summer!

Punch: Make "the day before" serving.
Combine all ingredients, EXCEPT the strawberry soda, in a large container. Refrigerate.

Before Serving:
Pour refrigerated ingredients into a Lg.Punch Bowl. Then "slowly" pour in the strawberry soda. Add the fruited ice cubes and serve!
Note: If your punch bowl won't hold all of the punch mixture, use only half of it, then only add 1 qt. of the strawberry soda...when needed, refill punch bowl with the remaining half of the punch mixture and then add the other 1 qt. of strawberry soda!

Our family has used this recipe ever since I can remember...for picnics, bridal showers, weddings, and many other gatherings. This recipe is from my Uncle Matt's parish cookbook(I did change it a little, so that it isn't quite as sweet as the original)!
