Party time! The best party punch ever…

With all graduation and Memorial Day weekend festivities coming up, it occurred to me that I’ve never shared my favorite punch-to-serve-a-crowd. I love this. My kids love this. My husband loves this. My girlfriends really love this with a splash of vodka. It’s just a great all-purpose crowd pleasing punch.

And it couldn’t be easier.

I’ve been making this for years, though I’m pretty sure the recipe is not my own. I have it scratched on an old piece of notebook paper from my college days, but I’ve found other versions online too. Savor Home Blog even calls it by the exact same name I do, so I think it’s safe to say this recipe has been around the block 🙂

You can use diet soda if you want to cut the sugar a bit. I really don’t notice too much of a difference. (Perhaps that’s because I usually drink the version with vodka in it! :-))
