Make This Punch for New Year’s Eve


This yummy punch recipe calls for frozen orange juice and frozen lemonade with a secret ingredient (almond extract). This drink will be the hit of the party. Make it ANY time you want a special drink.If you are having a family party on New Year’s Eve, you’ll probably want to have something to drink.  And have I got a great recipe for you!  It’s called Punch.

(Punch.  You’d think that who ever came up with this recipe could come up with a clever title for it, too.  But no.  Just plain and simple — Punch.)

The almond extract is the secret ingredient that gives it a delightful flavor.  Something that you’re not quit expecting.  This is always a hit when I fix it and I think your grandchildren will love it.  Not too sweet.  Not too carbonated.

You’ll need a big punch bowl to serve this in because it makes quite a lot of punch.  (Sometimes I put in a 3 liter bottle of Sprite if I’m going to have lots of family members at the party.)

Here’s the recipe.

Punch
10 cups water
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 small can frozen orange juice (thawed)
1 small can frozen lemonade (thawed)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon almond extract
2 liter bottle of Sprite

Add the sugar to the water and stir till sugar is dissolved.  And remaining ingredients.  (You might want to use ice cubes as part of the water so that the punch will be cold.)

You know, you could serve this punch ANY time of the year. It makes a refreshing summer drink, a fun drink for a birthday party, an Easter brunch, spooky Halloween party, family reunion, or any time you want a special drink.

Enjoy!
