I haven't had punch in such a long time. We just don't have it very often. I had to go to the storage shed to pull this punch bowl set out. Chuck and I received this punchbowl in 1972 it was one of two and it hasn't seen much use in a long time. This is a punch everyone can drink. It is very easy to make and quite good. Today I share a recipe for Christmas Punch...
I need to explain that I made the mold with the punch mixture instead of something clear say like water...It would have shown up much better with a clear liquid. You can do either, although it won't make the display with same punch mixture as shown above. The benefit of using the punch is that it won't affect the taste of the punch as it melts. The mold had melted quite a bit by the time I decided to take this picture.
An ice mold does keep the punch cold for hours though and is worth the effort to make one.
The following recipe is for a large amount of punch approximately 2 to 3 punch bowls full plus one mold if you choose. You can adjust this recipe for your needs, as little or as much as you need.
CHILL juices and Ginger Ale/Sprite overnight
- Large 1 Gal. jug of Hawaiian Punch
