Here in the south it doesn’t take long for spring to morph right into a summer filled with showers, soirees, shindigs and Sunday suppers. And we need more than iced tea to beat the heat. That’s when we pull out our favorite punch recipes!
Every southerner has her favorite punch recipe! So I’m going to share my top 5. We can’t keep all the good stuff hidden, now can we?
1. Mocha Punch
Mocha Punch has to be my very favorite punch. And it’s the one punch that I make all year long. It’s what I serve for brunch, along side cinnamon rolls on Thanksgiving and Christmas mornings. It’s also my most requested recipe. You can find it here!
2. Golden Punch
I’ve made this punch for several weddings and I’ve never had anyone not like it!
3. Rainbow Punch
This is the punch made with sherbet – whatever flavor/color you need and was a favorite of my children when they were growing up. Oh, who’s kidding, it’s still a favorite with my children.
4. Crystal Light Diet Punch
This is the perfect punch for bridesmaid luncheons, bridal showers or anytime you must be able to fit into an outfit and can’t afford to gain an ounce. It’s so simple: Grab one 2-quart size Crystal Light package and mix with water as directed and chill. When ready to serve, add one well chilled 2-liter size Sprite Zero (or substitute diet ginger ale for the sprite). Double as needed. It’s light. It’s refreshing. It’s easy!
5. Faux Champagne Punch
This is the punch to serve when you need something fancy smancy! You can find my recipe here!
