|EVERY FEW MINUTES|
|PINK WEDDING OR PARTY PUNCH|
2 plain Kool Aid pkgs. pink lemonade
2 c. sugar
1 (6 oz.) frozen pink lemonade
3 c. pineapple juice
Lemon or lime slices, mint sprigs
1/2 c. maraschino cherry syrup
2 1/2 qt. (10 c.) water
1/2 of 2-liter Sprite, 7-UP, or equal
(Ice ring made with some of punch)
Mix dry ingredients together and add all the liquid except the Sprite and ice ring. If making a concentrate ahead of time, leave out 2 quarts (1/2 gallon) of water and add with Sprite at serving time. The concentrate will store in a 1/2 gallon jug with expansion room for freezing if desired. Serves about 40 punch-cup-size servings (4 ounces).
To make ice ring, reserve 4-5 cups of complete punch recipe. Pour just enough in the bottom of a salad ring mold to cover bottom. Arrange thin lemon or lime circles in the ring with mint sprigs in between. Stand the sprigs in the punch so that stems are up. Carefully set in freezer and let stand until fruit and sprigs have frozen solid into punch. Add about a cup at a time of punch, allowing freezing between additions. Pour cool water over outside of mold to loosen and turn into punch bowl with fruit side up. Makes a pastel pink punch. Other flavors of Kool Aid can be substituted if desired.
