Punch

on April 8, 2015

There aren’t many times that you get a chance to make Punch these days. It seems like kind of an old-fashioned thing. I remember that I had a delicious pink champagne punch for my high school graduation. Both of my daughters have found pretty punch bowls of their own because they say punch is coming back. It used to be a big thing back in the day, so my mom’s birthday party was a good excuse to try one of these old Punch recipes. This recipe makes a HUGE batch, and even when I halved the recipe, a lot of the ladies at the party were coffee drinkers so we had a lot left over.

This is a tasty punch.

Here is the recipe as I made it:

Punch

(Half Batch)

Make a batch of lemonade from the lemonade mix (I used Country Time) and freeze it in a ring mold to make an ice ring that wont dilute the punch.

Mix together:

2 12 ounce cans frozen lemonade

1 12 ounce can frozen orange juice

1/2 can (46 ounce) unsweetened pineapple juice

2 scoops lemonade mix

Add:

Water as the juice cans indicate (maybe some less).

1/2 of a 2 liter bottle 7Up

Mix well and add lemonade ice ring.

Even though I only made a half batch, the punch bowl was full, and there was still some extra left in the refrigerator to chill.

This punch is a bright and cheery addition to the cake table.

My daughter had the idea to use lemonade ice cubes next time instead of an ice ring. There’s barely room to get the ladle through the middle of the ring. The ring is pretty, though.

Lemonade is a great base to the punch. It goes with everything. This is a great recipe for all of those graduations, bridal showers, and gatherings you have coming this spring and summer. Mix up a batch and let everyone help themselves. Just don’t let anyone spike it – unless you want to.
