ISO Favoruite Punch Recipes

With alcohol and without please.

  1. Believe it or not, I love to simply mix ginger ale and rainbow sherbet. The ratio depends on your own taste, but I'm pretty sure 2 -2 liters of ginger ale go fine with about half gallon of sherbet.

    I also do this "float" style one glass at a time.

      I got this great recipe from a nice hotel (can't remember the name) in Arizona. It is so good and very easy...


      1/2 Gallon Lemonade
      1/2 Gallon OJ
      2 Cans Peach Nectar
      8 oz Brandy
      8 oz. Peach Schnapps
      2 bottles Cabernet Sauvignon

      If you want to dress it up you can serve it with some chopped up (finely) fruit (berries, peaches, etc.).

    2. Thank you both so far; I have never even seen rainbow sherbet, and I will be putting this sangria down for my paella party later in August.
      Any more out there?

        This Champagne Punch is a universal hit. It is deliciously refreshing. I've made it many times and everyone loves it. And it's pretty, too.

          This one is really tasty...

          Redcoat Rally Punch

          6 oz. can frozen pink lemonade concentrate
          1-1/4 cups water
          1 quart strawberry ice cream or sherbet

          In a punch bowl combine pineapple juice, lemonade, and water, stirring until lemonade concentrate is melted. Add ice cream and stir until blended. Stir in ginger ale. Add ice and serve.
