1 orange, sliced into rounds

8 maraschino cherries
add before serving 2 cups of gingerale

in a large pitcher or bowl, mix everything together except the ginger ale. refridgerate and let sit overnight for best flavor. add ginger ale just before serving. makes 6 cups.

if you are making for a large group or party it multiplies easily. to fill up the large glass container we had at the party we multiplied by 5.
