The other day I bought a new cookbook, Georgia Cooking in an Oklahoma Kitchen by Trisha Yearwood. I have always been a Trisha Yearwood fan, so that is what prompted me to pick up her cookbook. I also happen to like her husband, Garth.
Anywho, I was thumbing through the cookbook when I got it home and found one of my favorite punch recipes. A recipe I have had for years. So, I thought I would share it with you. Do you have this recipe too?
2 packets of unsweetened Lemon-Lime Kool-Aid
2 cups sugar
1 46-ounce can pineapple juice
12 ounces frozen lemonade concentrate, thawed
32 ounces ginger ale (1 quart)
Put 2 quarts of water in a 1 gallon container. Add the drink mix and sugar, and stir until the sugar dissolves. Then add the pineapple juice and the lemonade concentrate. Stir well. Then right before you serve it add the ginger ale.
I have frozen it, and added the ginger ale to it when we served it. Not frozen it solid mind you, but just frozen enough to be slushy. Well, except for the few times we forgot to take it out of the freezer, but it all turned out okay. We just spooned it out of there in chunks and added the ginger ale, and it was still good.
We call this Green Punch. I will share the Red Punch recipe with you next, it just isn't as famous as this green punch recipe. Imagine my surprise when I saw that Trisha Yearwood makes the same punch as I do. How cool is that?
