When I posted my son's birthday decor HERE, I promised to share the punch recipe with y'all. I originally got this recipe from a friend at a baby shower many, many years ago. It is the best punch I've ever tasted and my kids request it all the time. :)
|Just looking at this pic makes me want some right now. :) It is so refreshing, especially on a hot summer day.|
|Here's what you'll need (plus 2 cups sugar, not pictured)|
Here's the recipe:
2 small lemon jello boxes
2 cups sugar
8 oz. lemon juice
46 oz. can pineapple juice
2 Tablespoons almond extract
Ginger Ale to pour over the frozen mixture when ready to serve
You just mix up the jello per the instructions on the box. (with hot water, then cold water) Once it cools a bit, add the 2 cups sugar and mix well. Then add the lemon juice, pineapple juice, and almond extract. Mix well and freeze overnight, then scrape off into punch bowl and add ginger ale.
I just mix it all up in a big pot, then transfer it to plastic containers before I freeze it.
|Here are the plastic containers I freeze it in. (I put the lids on before I freeze it, but wanted to show you what the mixture looks like) :)|
|Here's one more pic of the finished product. The almond extract really is what makes this punch so good. Hope you'll try it and let me know what you think. :)|
