After a spicy snack, cool your palate with this festive and fruity punch. Let guests help themselves at the punch bowl, or serve it by the glass with pretty fruit garnishes.—Deirdre Cox, Kansas City, Missouri
Here’s a healthy and delicious warm punch that’s a cozy way to welcome family and friends in from the cold or just celebrate the season. Serve in small cups, as it tastes best when piping hot! —Patricia Nieh, Portola Valley, California
I am a retired assistant luncheon manager for an elementary school. In addition to serving lunches, we were often called upon to serve refreshments for school meetings and other occasions. Everyone always enjoyed this cranberry punch.

This refreshing punch only calls for three ingredients so you can whip it up at a moment's notice. I rely on a pretty ice ring to keep it cool during holiday get-togethers.—Judie White of Florien, Louisiana
I especially enjoy this great pick-me-up drink after I have spent hours working out in the yard. By adding ice cubes while blending, I make a slushy version, which is refreshing in the summer, when friends stop by or I'm just sitting on the porch relaxing.
-Frann Clark, DeRidder, Louisiana
"We had a diabetic child in our church youth group a few years ago and tried to fix snacks that would be within his restrictions but enjoyable for the other kids as well," explains Ruth Tacoma of Falmouth, Michigan. "This punch really fills the bill-you'd never know it's a diabetic drink."
