Pink Punch

Our family has enjoyed this Pink Party Punch countless times over the years.  The slush is a fun treat that is easy to make so it’s always a winner!

My cousin shared her Slush Punch recipe with the rest of us.  I recall that she has made it when hosting holiday meals, baby showers, wedding showers and birthday parties.

My immediate family is much smaller, but we still enjoy making this punch for special occasions like Thanksgiving, Christmas or Easter meals.  Most recently we made this punch for my mom’s birthday party that featured pizza and Chocolate Covered Strawberry Cake.

For a bigger party, we like to use a punch bowl and go ahead and mix the ginger ale with the slush ahead of time.   Mixing up the complete punch is one of the last preparations we make before the party begins.

For smaller parties, we like to set out a bowl of the slush and a bottle of ginger ale and let people mix their own cup.  Changing the slush to ginger ale ratio can be a personal preference.

Fruit Slush Punch

This is a really good punch for a party because it’s special.  We try to celebrate the special things in life. The basic ingredients are EASY to mix together and freeze weeks ahead of time.

This large batch of frozen slush takes both of my biggest bowls with lids.  Sometimes we’ll freeze a couple of cups of slush in small containers to be able to make a few glasses for a family dinner.

Carefully planning what size of cup to use for serving the punch will really affect how many servings of punch this recipe creates.

Since we have a chest freezer with plenty of space I like to have at least half of a batch ready to defrost and share at party.  As long as an airtight container is used this punch will last in the freezer for up to three months.

When a party opportunity pops up, set the frozen slush out on the counter for about an hour, use a butter knife to chop it up and the perfect punch is ready to go.

Use a sturdy bowl for freezing so that when using a knife to chop it up the container won’t crack or break.

Holiday Party Punch Recipe

I’m always proud to serve food that is so good people ask for the recipe at holiday parties.  This punch is one of those easy and often requested recipes.

A punch bowl makes a nice presentation, but this punch an also easily be served out of a couple of pitchers.  When we have a lot of little kids that have trouble reaching up and into the punch bowl serving in a pitcher can be easier and safer.

Other basic party foods I love are Making a Fruit Tray, Making a Vegetable Traya slow cooker dip like Buffalo Chicken Dip or Fiesta Sausage Dip and Slow Cooker Stuffed Mushrooms.

The slow cooker is definitely our friend at parties so we can focus on entertaining and enjoying food.
