Pretty Party Punch Recipe

"This sparkling punch has been a lifesaver for many last-minute showers, parties and get-togethers, because it’s quick and inexpensive,” says Kelly Wilson of Bloomington, Indiana. “You can use any flavor soft drink mix for a different flavor and color, but black cherry is my favorite. For a lighter version, replace the sugar and soft drink mix with sugar-free Kool-Aid, and substitute diet soda as well," she adds.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 15 min. YIELD:16 servings


  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 envelopes unsweetened black cherry Kool-Aid mix
  • 1 cup hot water
  • 2 liters lemon-lime soda, chilled
  • 2 liters ginger ale, chilled


  • 1. In a small bowl, stir the sugar, Kool-Aid mix and hot water until sugar is dissolved. Cool to room temperature. Just before serving, combine the soft drink mixture, lemon-lime soda and ginger ale in a large punch bowl. Yield: 16 servings (about 4 quarts).
