Besides quenching a hot day's thirst, details Betty Romine of Lake Jackson, Texas, her fruity beverage saves time in the kitchen, too. "For the star-shaped molds, you just mix and freeze three basic ingredients," she describes. "The punch goes together quickly as well—making it ideal for lots of occasions."
"Everybody loves glasses of this sweet fruit punch," promises Betty Eberly of Palmyra, Pennsylvania. "When entertaining, I start with a quart of sherbet, then add more later so it all doesn't melt right away," she suggests.
"I serve this rosy spiced beverage at parties and family gatherings during the winter," relates Laura Burgess, Ballwin, Missouri. "Friends like the tangy twist it gets from Red-Hots. It's a nice change from the usual hot chocolate."
Children of all ages will savor the nostalgic flavor of this refreshing punch from Shirley Womer of Middleburg, Pennsylvania. "It reminds me of the orange creamsicles we enjoyed when we were young," she notes.
This drink is a super change of pace from iced tea or punch. My aunt gave me this recipe when our children were little. Now they're all adults, but we still enjoy this pretty beverage when we get together.—Doreen Patterson, Qualicum Beach, British Columbia
This thirst-quenching drink is perfect for a summer picnic or family get-together. When I serve it in a punch bowl, I'll often make an ice ring of ginger ale with a few berries in it to float on top rather than use ice cubes.
