This was a HUGE HIT at our graduation party. I doubled the recipe (which made A LOT) and still went through it all. Everyone kept commenting on how delicious the punch was and asking what was in the mixture. I filled about 4 gallon-sized ziplock bags with the mixture (before adding the gingerale) into the freezer the night before. Just before party time, I would put 1 of the frozen bags contents in a large punch bowl and add some more mix from the refrigerator and add the gingerale. I set that punch out for the guests, meanwhile starting another punch bowl in the kitchen - so I could rotate. I hope that made sense. It worked wonderfully and kept the punch nice and cold.
Truly "so simple" and so yummy! I served this at a bridal shower for 175 and received tons of compliments. Double batch makes almost 5 gallons. Will definitely use again for large events!
This was absolutely delicious, and is now permanently in my recipe book! When I went to the store, they only had 2 strawberry drink packages, so I added 2 packages of strawberry lemonade. It was very pretty. I added frozen pineapple rings and frozen strawberries as a decoration. A++!
Excellent recipe. I made this for a baby shower and it was a huge hit. I used half of the pineapple juice, water and KoolAid, but only used 3/4 C of sugar (it would have been way to sweet otherwise) and used the whole 2 liter bottle of Ginger Ale. It was so yummy!!! Would definitely make again!!
This was a great punch for my DD's college graduation party. I refilled the bowl 4 times, as it was hot and everyone was really thirsty! Loved the combination of flavors from the juice and drink mix. I also added an ice ring (How to Make an Ice Ring) to keep it nice and cold! Thanks for sharing it with us!
Yum! This punch is so simple, cheap and easy to make. I cut the recipe in half and used 2 cans of ginger ale, which was fine for me. I don't care for super fizzy punch, but you can always add more if you so desire. Half of this recipe fit perfectly into my punch bowl, so I'm curious to know what will happen if I use the full recipe. I love the combination of the strawberry and pineapple tastes, but I would like to try this punch with other flavors as well. I think an orange/banana/pineapple juice mixture would be great with the strawberry drink mix. I might try 7-Up instead of ginger ale, too. If you are looking for a quick and tasty punch, I highly recommend this one!
I served this at a get together yesterday. It was a huge hit. So easy to make and super delicious. My grocery store didn't have strawberry drink mix, so I used watermelon instead. If you've had this punch and loved it, try it with watermelon drink mix. So yummy. My only problem was the sugar didn't dissolve well and had to stir it occasionally. I'm making it again for Easter next weekend and I will heat the water and sugar so it dissolves completely. Then cool before mixing the punch.
Delicious! Thanks for posting.
Whoooa Nelly. This drink is crazy sweet. If you are a hardcore soda drinker than you might be able to handle it. Otherwise, do not add the sugar and only use 2 kool aid packets.
We had a cast party for the high school kids and I couldn't keep my punch bowl full! We added some raspberry sherbert and the whole cast LOVED it. Thanks ms_bold!
