I swore off making punch ten years ago when I made it for a bridal shower and it ended up looking like foamy dirty dish water. Not only was it a lot of work, it didn’t even taste good. But just like mushrooms and fish, I decided even punch deserved a second chance.

A month ago I was in charge of refreshments for a church activity and on the way to the event our president called and asked if I needed her to pick up ice for the punch. The what? I had already made dessert, but drinks had completely skipped my mind. I needed something easy so I immediately texted my sisters, Shelly and Susan, on my way to the grocery store for their easy limeade punch recipe. It’s a refreshing lime drink with a slight tart kick. People kept asking for the recipe and I was embarrassed to tell them it actually wasn’t from scratch and only had 2 ingredients. Work smart not hard, right?
You can add sliced limes or even frozen raspberries to give a little color. The best part is that you can whip up a batch in the middle of a party without missing a beat. You can even be daring and try the Cherry Limeade version. Oh how I wish we had a Sonic out here!
Just know that if you do use frozen raspberries after a while they leave a red glow. I think it’s pretty!

Limeade Punch

Ingredients

  • 1 12 ounce can frozen limeade concentrate
  • 1 2 liter bottle Sprite
  • frozen raspberries or sliced limes for garnish
  • ice

Instructions

  1. Pour the frozen limeade concentrate in a large bowl and add the Sprite. I like my punch on the tart side so I add about 3/4 of a bottle of Sprite. Add ice, sliced limes, and frozen raspberries if desired.
  2. Got Sonic Fever? Turn it into cherry limeade by adding the juice of 1 (10 ounce) jar of maraschino cherries. Add an additional can of frozen limeade for some extra tartness and garnish with the reserved maraschino cherries.
