1-2 PUNCH…recipes that is

I love a good punch recipe!  I always wonder why we only enjoy this delicious treat at baby and wedding showers?  I wanna bring punch back!

Sherbet punch is by far my favorite.  So creamy with a little fizz that tickles your tongue…yummy!  But a bubbly fruity one is always good, too.  I CAN’T DECIDE!!  So, let’s make both…

Cherry Limeade Punch

  • 1 can frozen limeade concentrate
  • 1 2-liter bottle of Sprite (or 7-Up)
  • 1 jar maraschino cherries
  • 2 limes
  • 1 bag pebble ice (I get mine at Sonic)

Directions:

Place frozen Limeade in punchbowl.  Stir in bottle of Sprite and juice from cherries.  Add the desired amount of ice.  Float cherries and sliced limes on top.

With a 1:1 ratio, this recipe is easily doubled.

 

Orange “Oh-So-Dreamy!” Punch

  • 1 quart orange sherbet
  • 1 quart pineapple sherbet
  • 1 (6 oz) can frozen orange juice concentrate
  • 2 (2 liter) bottles of ginger ale
  • 1 orange (sliced)
  • **Optional:  Add a few of scoops of vanilla ice cream to make it even more dreamy!
Directions:
Place sherbet and frozen orange juice concentrate in a punch bowl.  Allow to thaw for 10 to 15 minutes.  Stir in ginger ale.  Garnish with orange slices.  Float scoops of vanilla ice cream on top for an orange dreamsicle flavor!
So, for your next BBQ or family get-together, serve one of these up.  Everyone will love you for it!
