Here's fruity refreshment that can flavor a gathering without a fuss! Simply stir up strawberries, juices, water and sugar according to the recipe, then freeze. Add soda before serving and you're all set.
Keep one thing in mind, though, chuckles Thelma Rush of Mt. Pleasant, Tennessee. "You may want to make extra," she notes. "People are always coming back for seconds!"
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 sweet and refreshing beverage that's perfect when cooling off in the shade. In summer, I make the sugar syrup in advance, so I can mix up a quick batch after we've been out in the sun. The syrup can keep for up to a week.
I've served this punch at ladies luncheons and as a breakfast beverage for a crowd. The sweet tangy flavor complements many foods. It's a fun change from plain red punch.—Lorene Corbett, Arnold, Nebraska
"This light, fruity punch is a breeze to serve-I make it ahead and store it in the freezer," remarks Margaret Wagner Allen of Abingdon, Virginia. "Since it calls for canned fruit, there's no time-consuming peeling or chopping."
"I've served this drink for over 20 years and always get compliments," notes Joy Butler from Pincher Creek, Alberta. "For parties, I often dip small clusters of grapes in sugar and perch them on the edge of each glass for garnish."
