This has been my signature punch for years, and the much-requested favorite at our annual Christmas party. It’s sparkly, fruity, frothy (if you add the sherbet) and so simple! —JAN WITTEVEEN, NORBORNE, MISSOURI
This is a refreshing punch that isn't as sweet as most. My family loves the tart "wake-me-up" flavor. As an added bonus, this punch won't stain carpeting the way a red punch would! —Cindy Steffen, Cedarburg, Wisconsin
We thought this punch would be such fun for Halloween that we garnished it with a chilling gummy-worm ice ring! To prepare it for weddings, graduations and anniversaries, simply eliminate the gummy worms. —Kathy Kittell, Lenexa, Kansas
Janice Wilson of Manfield, Pennsylvania stirs up this sunny mixture for a crowd. "It's great for parties and weddings. I use tea bags rather than instant tea when brewing the tea for a stronger flavor," she notes.
This pink cooler is deliciously thirst-quenching on a warm day. Seeing its color, folks guess it might be pink lemonade. They're pleasantly surprised to discover the bubbly blend includes cranberry, pineapple, orange and lemon juices.

All ages will enjoy this warming punch. The blend of spice, fruit and citrus flavors is scrumptious. You can assemble it before heading out for a winter activity and sip away the chill when you return. It's ready whenever you are. —Margaret Harms, Jenkins, Kentucky
