Cranberry Holiday Punch

I have served this delicious punch at Christmas parties for the last several years and it's always a big hit.  The original recipe uses a lot of sugar, so I wanted to modify it to be a tasty, but low-calorie punch.  The almond extract gives this punch a great flavor.  My guests this year didn't even know that I lightened it up.  We also like to spike this with a little orange vodka....

Cranberry Holiday Punch
Adapted from Allrecipes

Ingredients:
1/3 cup Stevia In The Raw granulated stevia
1 quart (no sugar added) cranberry juice
2 cups unsweetened pineapple juice
3 tbsp almond extract
1 (2 liter) bottle diet-ginger ale (go for the stevia sweetened brands if you can find them)
Fresh cranberries for presentation

Directions:
Wash the cranberries and freeze them.  They will serve as the "ice" and keep the punch chilled.  Mix all ingredients together in a large container (except ginger-ale) and refrigerate for 1 day to let the flavors mingle. Right before serving, add the ginger ale and the cranberries, stir and enjoy.
