This sparkling punch has been a lifesaver for many last-minute showers, parties and get-togethers, because it’s quick and inexpensive. You can use any flavor soft drink mix for a different flavor and color, but black cherry is a favorite. For a lighter version, replace the sugar and soft drink mix with sugar-free Kool-Aid, and substitute diet soda as well.
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 (1/4 ounce) envelopes unsweetened Kool-Aid powdered drink mix, black cherry
- 1 cup hot water
- 2 liters carbonated lemon-lime beverage, chilled
- 2 liters ginger ale, chilled
- In a small bowl, stir the sugar, soft drink mix and hot water until sugar is dissolved. Cool to room temperature. Just before serving, combine the soft drink mixture, lemon-lime soda and ginger ale in a large punch bowl.
Made this for a birthday party. Everyone said how good it was. I am going to add it to my punch recipe collection. Thanks looneytunesfan. Bullwinkle.
