So many Christmas Punch recipes are about Cranberry Juice which is lovely but I want to share a different recipe I think you will love.
My helpers here are my grandkids and the photos are from last year...yes this is a repost but I think you will love it just the same. This recipe was created by Betty Reames formerly from Des Moines, Iowa and I first had it at my son's baby shower over 34 years ago. Everyone loved Betty's recipe!
Here is the recipe: 1 large can pineapple juice, 1 large can frozen orange juice, 6 bananas mashed, 1 quart 7 up or gingerale, 4 cups sugar, 6 cups water and a jar or marachino cherries.
My little - but now bigger - Lily and Pete are going to town here on the mashing! This would make a lovely tradition for your family!
Mix and freeze the pineapple and orange juices with the water and sugar the day or night before. Whatever you freeze this in needs to be smaller than your punch bowl. When ready for the punch - dump the frozen mass into the bowl and add the mashed bananas, chopped cherries and mash together to form a slush - pour the gingerale over this and enjoy!
