My mother would brew a batch of this hot drink when any of us children were sick. One sip and we'd instantly feel better! Now I make it for my husband and daughter on dreary winter mornings or anytime they're feeling under the weather.
For years, our family has relied on this homespun mix to make hot spiced tea and a heartwarming punch. My parents always served steaming mugs of this punch at Thanksgiving. It was everyone's favorite. —Deb McKinney, Cedar Falls, Iowa
With its pretty pink blush and tart refreshing flavor, Cranberry Lemonade is sure to satisfy, glass after glass after glass. Field director Darlene Brenden of Salem, Oregon shares this summer thirst-quencher.
Lemon-lime soda puts the fizz in this fresh-tasting juice blend. "This is my version of a cranberry drink I've had many times at a local restaurant. I like the mix of flavors, and it's easy to increase the amount," says LaVonne Hegland, ST. Michael, Minnesota.
A delightful blend of four fruit juices gives this pleasant punch its cool character, while ginger ale adds the quenching fizz. For our theme party, I looked to the Olympics' history to come up with an appropriate name for this modern-day beverage.
