"When we celebrated my mother's 75th birthday, we wanted a punch everyone could enjoy," recalls Barbara Koehnke of Fremont, Wisconsin. "This delightful combination of lemonades, juice and soda was perfect and so easy to make. All of our guests loved it."
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.

"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."
With its rosy color, this beverage is perfect for any holiday gathering. Each delicious sip is sure to warm you up. Plus, it has a wonderful aroma that welcomes guests as they come through the door.
