Conni Brueggeman of Sparta, Wisconsin shares a concoction that's a quick to fix as it is to refresh. To mix it for your Halloween hoedown (or anytime), simply stir the easy-to-find ingredients and serve. "It made quite a splash among the guests at a party at our house," Connie comments.
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
"I was looking for a very special beverage to serve at my daughter's wedding when I found the recipe for this pretty pink punch with a little 'zing' to it," writes Carol Schwartz from Hegins, Pennsylvania. "It got lots of compliments from our guests. That was 30 years ago - and I'm still making it."
Meet the Cook: "This festive-looking green punch has starred at many holiday parties and other events," comments Karen Engstrand of Alma, Wisconsin. "The recipe comes from a cookbook I won in a drawing when I was a child. The cover is lost now, and the pages are yellowing...but the recipes are as wonderful as ever."
