Pink Punch

In the Pink Party blog I talked about a punch that I usually make for the party. Sometimes I will make it at any show I am doing, it really just depends on what the hostess wants.

Pink Punch

Ingredients
4 liters cranberry ginger ale
1 gallon raspberry sherbet

Directions

In a large punch bowl, pour 2 liters chilled cranberry ginger ale. Next scoop the raspberry sherbet into the bowl. Then pour the other 2 liters of chilled cranberry ginger ale over sherbet. Serve.

I really like this one, it is simple and easy.

Now I just found the following recipe on allrecipes.com and I cannot wait to try it. It sounds unique and yummy.

Pink Rhubarb Punch

Ingredients

8 cups chopped fresh or frozen rhubarb
8 cups water
2 1/2 cups sugar
3 tablespoons strawberry flavored gelatin
2 cups boiling water
2 cups pineapple juice
1/4 cup lemon juice
6 cups ginger ale, chilled

Directions

In a large saucepan, bring rhubarb and water to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer for 10 minutes. Drain, reserving liquid (save rhubarb for another use). In a large bowl, combine sugar, gelatin and boiling water until dissolved. Add pineapple and lemon juices; mix well. Stir in rhubarb liquid; refrigerate. Just before serving, pour into a punch bowl and add ginger ale.

Either of these will be a great addition to any party and will set you apart from other hostess’ they might have seen. Remember you never get a second chance to make a first impression. Until later….
