Easy To Make Water Punch Recipe

Easy. Grandma Ideas: This easy to make Water Punch recipe is a crowd pleaser. It's an easy way to make a lemonade drink without squeezing lemons!

I like easy.

Easy crafts.

Easy DIY.

Easy recipes.

I especially like easy recipes that pleases everybody. (I don’t ask much now, do I?)

However, it’s hard to please everybody. Sometimes there seems to be a persnickety eater that is always disgruntled. (Boo!)

But, everybody that has tasted my Water Punch recipe loves it. Wahoo!

Are you having a picnic this Memorial Day weekend? If so, this is the perfect drink to serve.

Here’s the recipe.

Water Punch
  • 5 quarts of water
  • 3 cups of sugar
  • 1 tablespoon citric acid
  • 1 tablespoon lemon extract
  1. Mix all of the ingredients in a large container. Add ice to chill. Serve and enjoy

Now that you have the recipe, lemme tell you a wee bit about it.

I think that 3 cups of sugar makes this punch a tad sweet. So, I recommend that you taste it once you make the recipe. Add more water if you find it too sweet. Or, if it will be a while before you serve the drink, you can add more ice cubes. As they melt, they will dilute the sweetness.

Another thing. Citric acid is the key ingredient here. I get mine at a local pharmacy.

A pharmacy? you ask.

Yes, indeedy. A pharmacy. They keep it behind the counter — with all of the other controlled substances. Odd, I know. Don’t ask me why they keep it there.

Sometimes I get just half-a-cup’s worth. My pharmacy has it in a one-pound container. I got one quite a few years ago for $16. That seems rather pricy to me. (That’s why I usually get only one-half of a cup at a time.)

Also, you can add sliced lemons and limes for a little color. They look especially nice if you serve this drink in a punch bowl.

You can also add one two-liter bottle of Sprite. That adds a little bubbly to the drink.

This is a lovely drink for a picnic or barbeque. Guests are really impressed. At first, they think they are being served water and when they drink it they are surprised — and love the taste.

Have a great Memorial Day Weekend!
