I am always looking for fun punch recipes and these are three of my favorites.
Watermelon Strawberry Slush
1/2 Cup Water
1 Cup of Ice Cubes
1/4 Cup Fresh Lemon Juice
6 Cups cubed Watermelon
1 Cup fresh Strawberries or Raspberries
1/3 Cup sugar
2-3 fresh mint leaves
Combine all ingredients in a blender and process until smooth. Serve immediately for slush drink or refrigerate if wanting as a cold punch.
6 oz Frozen Lemonade Concentrate
6 oz Frozen Orange Juice Concentrate
½ Cup grenadine syrup
1 quart 7-Up or Sprite, chilled
Make lemonade and orange juice according to the directions on the cans. Mix in the grenadine syrup. Cool until ready to serve. When ready to serve, add chilled soda.
6 medium ripe bananas
1 can (12 ounces) frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed
1 can (12ounces) thawed lemonade concentrate
4 cups hot water
2 1/2 cups sugar
1 can (46 ounces) pineapple juice
3 bottles (2 liters each) 7-Up or Sprite, chilled
In a blender, cover and process the bananas, orange juice concentrate and lemonade concentrate and blend until smooth. Remove mixture and set aside. In a separate container add the warm water and sugar and stir until dissolved. Combine and add pineapple juice. Divide into 3 containers; I use gallon zip-lock bags. Freeze until solid.
When ready to serve, remove 1 bag from freezer about 1 hour before ready to serve. Break apart the frozen mixture a bit and then add frozen mixture to punch bowl or pitcher. Add 1 bottle of lemon-lime soda. Stir and serve immediately. Each bag serves about 8.
