Simple Birthday Punch

Simple Birthday Punch | Through Clouded Glass

For Gwen's party I decided last minute that I wanted to make some punch.  When I say last minute, I mean the morning of the party.

I went on a hunt for a good, simple punch recipe, but I didn't like any of the ones I found.  Most of them were too complicated (like requiring freezing some of the ingredients beforehand, which I didn't have time for), or they wouldn't go well in my drink dispenser because of sherbet or ice cream that had to be added to it, or the ingredients would just be expensive.   I wanted something fairly inexpensive, something that I could prepare in five minutes, and something that wouldn't clog my drink dispenser. 

 So I invented my own recipe!

I wasn't sure if it was going to be good or not, but it actually turned out pretty well - several people at the party told me they liked it!  So I thought I'd post my recipe here.  

Easy Birthday Punch

1 can of pineapple juice concentrate

1 packet of strawberry-flavored Kool-aid

2 liter bottle of ginger ale

1. Prepare pineapple juice according to directions.

2. Mix kook-aid in with the pineapple juice.

3. Add the ginger ale to the juice mixture. Serve cold.

That's it!  The good thing about this punch is that if you have to add ice to it, it's just strong enough that it will still taste good even after the ice waters it down a bit.

When I added the ginger ale it fizzed up really nicely and made it look more party-like, but my ingredients weren't cold.  I had to add the ice, which also took down the fizz a bit.  If you want it too look more foamy, just start with cold ingredients and mix it right before serving!
