Recipes during the Great Depression were very simple, and Grandma Effie’s recipes written in her diary were no exception. Here is one we would like to share, since Valentine’s Day is fast approaching us.

Basic Tea Punch

2 cups strong tea (chilled)

6 cups fruit juice

4 cups ginger ale

Just before serving, combine and sweeten to taste. Pour over ice cubes in punch bowl. Serves 25.
