Originally I said: "Fabulous! I made this for my appetizer pot-luck and *everyone* raved about it. Definately worth the fuss of the syrup. In addition, we used Sprite in stead of 7-up and it worked fine." Now as an added bonus - I froze the left over syrup and used it about a year later. Still good, perhaps even better.
This was incredibly good! I made it this weekend for my husband's graduation party and everyone loved it! I gave the recipe to a couple people. Even my husband, (who doesn't get too excited about much)said several times how much he liked it. I will definately keep this and make it many more times! It was very easy to make, I even changed how much I wanted to make and the computer made the right calculations and it was perfect! Thankyou so much for sharing this!!
Yummy punch! Made it for two different holiday get togethers. The cinnamon really adds that something special.
Really good! I wasn't sure how the cinnamon would meld with the diet 7-up but it worked. Turns out a really pretty pink. Not a drop was left at our Christmas Eve Open House.
Served at an Autumn Eagle Scout Ceremony but used Cranberry/Raspberry Ocean Spray Juice. The cinnamon gave it an Autumn/Winter tasty flair with people coming back for seconds. The sugar syrup was simple to make. I used small cinnamon sticks and orange slices to garnish the punch bowl and it looked very festive. This is a "keeper" recipe!
Great punch that was served at our Christmas get together. Can add vodka for the adults if you like. Just loved the cinnamon flavor from the syrup.
LOVE THIS! I make it for every holiday and get together.
So I am back to get the recipe AGAIN! My kids just can't get enough. I don't allow them much juice or soda due to the sugar so this is just for 'special occasions' but I believe this is my fifth time making it since Thanksgiving! They just don't want plain juice anymore. The only change that I make is instead of 7-Up I prefer Sprite, it just seems to give it a lighter flavor.
This mommyofone agrees with mommyoffour. The cinnamon syrup is the key. Christmas Day was the first time I made this punch also. Everyone loved it. I am not a punch fan but this was great. Didn't put in the lemon juice, because realized at last minute I didn't have any. Made an ice ring with cherry Kool-aid and lime slices which looked very festive. I give it an A+ also. Thank you !!
This is a GREAT punch. I made the for DH's family Christmas. I didn't try it before everyone got here and was worried I should have. Nope, this punch is delicious. We even got the non punch drinkers to try it and like it. The cinnamon syrup is the key to this punch. So good. I've already been told to bring this to SIL's house next year for our Christmas....lol. Thank you so much for this A+ recipe.
