Fruit Punch Recipes from 1919, 1920 and 1921

Fruit Punch Recipes from 1919, 1920 and 1921

Here are five versions of fruit punch recipes.  I had to look up what Appolinaris is and found it is sparkling water.  I am going to assume that charged water is the same thing.  For your next party, try a fruit punch recipe listed below.
