With just five basic ingredients, this wonderfully tangy punch couldn't be much simpler to stir together. It won't take a lot of you time away from other party preparations, which is a real plus.—Suzette Jury, Keene, California
Why settle for plain juice at brunch when you can sip this fizzy morning beverage by stirring together just four ingredients? "Everyone loves the taste of this refreshing punch," says Deborah Butts of Union Bridge, Maryland.
This is a sweet and refreshing beverage that's perfect when cooling off in the shade. In summer, I make the sugar syrup in advance, so I can mix up a quick batch after we've been out in the sun. The syrup can keep for up to a week.
As social chair one year during college, I tried to come up with a more interesting beverage than the usual cranberry juice and lemon-lime soda. This pastel punch was always a hit at receptions and parties.

"This makes enough punch for many parties," assures Carolyn Zimmerman of Fairbury, Illinois. Her convenient recipe creates a syrup you can refrigerate or freeze, then stir into four different refreshing thirst-quenchers.
As a table brightener, fix a bowl of festive fruity punch—it's a refreshing beverage you can mix together in moments. To dress it up even more, I add an ice ring filled with oranges, lemons and cranberries. —Karen Ann Bland, Gove, Kansas
