Amazingly simple and tasty! I made it for a gathering of 20 and was a little concerned when I saw how much punch the recipe made -- I thought we'd be drinking punch all week. Instead, it was polished off in an hour and a half, every bit of it. It has great flavor and great zing. What a terrific recipe!
Mmmmmmmmmmm! What a great punch... and it was so easy to make, it had so little ingredients. Thanks Dancer for a great recipe! I will use this again and again, even if it's not Christmas!
The serving numbers listed on the recipe (8) is slightly wrong. 2 Quarts of each ingredient gives you enough for 32 servings (assuming an 8 oz serving). So don't make the mistake I did and over-purchase ingredients!! But it was a great punch, and I have the leftovers in my fridge for a nice refreshing drink to treat myself after the kid s go to bed. (it also is nice if you add a little champagne- I did that individually though.)
I just came back to get my fav punch recipe for a get-together I'm having this weekend and realized I never reviewed this recipe. I've made this punch quite a few times over the last few years and everyone always loves it. AND it's good anytime, not just for Christmas. I just eyeball equal parts of everything and top it up when it starts to get empty. Thank you Dancer!
I can't believe I haven't reviewed this yet! The base ingredients freeze well so all you have to do is add the lemon-lime soda if you want a more slushy punch - it also allows you to have some on hand. Definitely not just for Christmas anymore! Everyone I've served it to loves it.
We prefer to mix the cranberry juice, lemonade and pineapple juice together, then pour it into a glass and pour Sprite over it, rather than mixing the Sprite in. Prefer a 1:1 ratio of the mixed ingredients to the Sprite. Also really good if you freeze the other ingredients and then scoop into a glass and pour Sprite over. Making it again this weekend!
This is a really good punch - beautiful colour!! Even though I have a rather large punch bowl, I was unable to get all the ingredients in together - just gradually added the last bit of lemonade & pineapple as room allowed. I served with lots of ice & the option of vodka at our Christmas Eve Open House & it was well-received.
excellent punch! i bought double the ingredients and so glad i did because it went fast and i was able to easily make a second batch-- didnt add too much soda, also delicious with malibu rum or vodka
We didn't use the carbonated beverage because I was making by the glassful and just ran out of room in the glass. It didn't need it. I was trying to get my kids to drink juices that they normally avoid. We will be making this again.
Made this Christmas weekend for family. It was a hit. I didn't add any soda as I felt it didn't need it. I used ginger ale and also didn't make the full amount. I just used equal quantities of each flavour. Will make this often. :) I agree that by adding some vodka or white wine you would have a 'real' party punch!! :)
