Perfect Purple Punch

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Engrossed

This is my variation of a punch recipe from the Better Homes & Gardens cookbook. Raspberry everything! I've made it for several parties and potlucks and always have requests for the recipe. If I don't make it people get mad! I usually double or triple it and always have extra ginger-ale on hand to pour in when it gets thick. The dry ice is optional but makes for a very cool bubbly fog effect.

I think the name of this is deceiving. It is not purple, but is pink. I have used this recipe for 2 baby showers--minus the dry ice--and everyone loves it. I do not use the frozen raspberries, but use fresh--just enough to sprinkle on top of the punch. It has a wonderful flavor and looks so pretty, too. I have even put lemon slices around the bowl to dress it up even more. Yummy!
