Jackie, here is a very simply punch that I have made many times.
Simple Sherbert Punch (approximately 20 servings)
- 1 can of pineapple juice (46 ounces)
- 1 bottle of ginger ale (2 liters)
- 1/2 gallon of sherbert (any flavor)
- 1 package of raspberries or cut strawberries (4 ounces)
Pour the chilled juice and ginger ale into a punch bowl and add the berries. Scoop the sherbert on top of the punch and serve immediately.
I also like to serve non alcoholic egg nog. The kids love it. The frozen hot chocolate is another option that I bet would make a big hit with the kids.
Thee best, best holiday drink for both kids and adults is the Mulled Apple Cider. I love the William and Sonoma ingrediants. All you need is the Mulling Spices, Five Apple Cider Concentrate, Cinnamon Sticks, and hot water. Here is the directions.
In a saucepan, gently simmer 1 quart apple cider and 2 Tbs. mulling spices for up to 20 minutes. Remove the spices and serve the cider hot in mugs garnished with a cinnamon stick, or chill and serve over ice as a cooler.
