We had our Easter party at school last week, and the punch that a mom made was delicious! So I got her recipe for Berry Lemonade Punch, and made it for our Easter lunch at home on Sunday. We had 7 adults beside our family and those who asked for the punch loved it!
I wasn’t able to grab great pictures of the punch when it was first made as I was entertaining, but the ice mold was first put into the bowl, it was beautiful. It was made out of blended crushed pineapple and a tiny bit of the lemonade mixture, and then I put blended strawberries into the mixture,so the pop of pinkish-red and yellow was so pretty. What you see in the pictures is how the sherbet and the melted ice ring has turned the punch pink, which is great for a spring punch!
Here is how you make Berry Lemonade Punch:
- Make the lemonade mixture. I made enough for 2 punch bowls, but for one punch bowl, you would:
- Mix 2 small packets of lemonade Kool-Aid with 1½ cups of sugar. Put both in a 1 gallon jug and fill only half full with water. Shake it until sugar the dissolves and refrigerated overnight.
- Make your ice mold. I have jello molds I used, but you could also use a Bundt pan. My mixture was enough for 2 molds.
- Blend up one can of crushed pineapple including it’s juice. Pour in a just a tiny bit of the lemonade mixture and mix well so that the blended pineapple is not so thick. Pour this mixture into your molds. (I divided it into 2 jello molds.
- Blend up some strawberries. Mine were frozen, and I just poured about a cup and a half into my blender, but I did not measure. I also had to add some lemonade to the strawberries so that they would blend up. I don’t have a super fancy blender.
- Spoon strawberries on top of pineapple mixture and slightly stir or swirl through the pineapple mixture. Freeze overnight.
- If you only wanted to do one punch bowl, you could do this step another way:
- Blend 1/2 can of crushed pineapple with all of it’s juice.
- Freeze pineapple in ice cube trays.
- Place frozen pineapple mixture and sliced frozen strawberries in the punch bowl the next day to help keep the punch cold.
- Ginger ale — about ¾ of the 2 liter will be used for one punch bowl
- 1 liter of club soda
- Raspberry sherbet — will be just spooned on top as desired
There was a little bit of prep work to do for this punch the night before, but making the punch on Sunday was super easy.
I poured the lemonade mixture into the punch bowl. Then I added the frozen mold mixture. Next I added in about 2/3 of the ginger ale and almost the entire liter of the club soda. The last thing I added was some scoops of the raspberry sherbet, and it was made! If you add more ginger ale or more club soda, it really doesn’t matter. The measurements don’t have to be exact. It will turn out!
