"When we celebrated my mother's 75th birthday, we wanted a punch everyone could enjoy," recalls Barbara Koehnke of Fremont, Wisconsin. "This delightful combination of lemonades, juice and soda was perfect and so easy to make. All of our guests loved it."
Back in 1952, a co-worker gave me the recipe for this versatile rosy punch. It's not too sweet, so it really refreshes. My family and friends have sipped it at countless gatherings from picnics to the holidays over the years.

Sweet and refreshing, this pretty pink slush stores well in the freezer, so it's great to have on hand for summer guests. Just thaw and add ginger ale or lemon-lime soda. Aahhh! —Danielle Brandt, Ruthton, Minnesota
A cold glass of refreshing punch really brightens a brunch. It's nice to serve a crisp beverage like this that's more spectacular than plain juice. With bananas, orange juice and lemonade, it can add tropical flair to a winter day.

"This is a refreshing summer drink to enjoy on those lazy dog days of summer," reports Kathy Kittell from her home in Lenexa, Kansas. With the simple syrup in the fridge, it's a breeze to stir up this thirst-quenching beverage by the glass or pitcher.
Whether you're splashing poolside or watching the kids inside, this slushy beverage has just the right balance of minty crispness and limey tartness that's sure to tingle your taste buds. —Jessica Ring, Chicago, Illinois
