Red-hot candies add a little spice to this rosy beverage that's perfect for holiday buffets or winter potlucks. Serve it hot or cold. At 28 cents a serving, it's inexpensive, too. —Ruth Hastings, Louisville, Illinois
Its pretty color and tangy-sweet taste make this festive drink a hit at Christmastime. We also served it at my sister's wedding, where guests told us it was some of the best punch they'd ever tasted. It is an old family recipe.
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.
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.
