Reviews for Luscious Slush Punch
Yummy! I decreased the sugar to 1 cup and it was perfect! I froze the slush in quart size bags so that if we didn't go through all of it I could save it for later. I will be making this again in the future!!
I made this for Thanksgiving and it was a big hit. We made a lot and froze the rest. Three weeks later we had an impromptu large gathering at the house and scrambled around to pull off refreshments and viola! We looked like we had it all planned... which was bad because the occasion was a funeral. lol Nevertheless, I think this is a really good recipe. One note though, we tried it with Sprite and with Club soda and the Sprite was waaaay too sweet - club soda was perfect (Even for kids). Thanks!
I used 1&1/2 cups of sugar for this recipe, thinking the pineapple and orange juice would help sweeten it also. It turned out super yummy! Everyone at the baby shower really liked it! I also had to smash the chunks of frozen ice with a potato masher, but it worked!
Great recipe! Everyone enjoyed this drink at my baby shower. They asked for the recipe. Only a cup was left at the end. It made plenty of juice for a party of 20 people. I will continue to forward this recipe to others. :-)
Perfect just as stated.. Made it for a baby shower with 25 guests. Seemed like too much but all of it went - everyone loved it!
I made this for a large BBQ party we had on the weekend. It was superb! I trippled the recipe and not a drop was left at the end of the evening. Many, many requests for the recipe too. Thank you!
This was excellent! Will definitely make again.
not good at all.
This was tasty - but I have to agree with the other reviews that said they had a hard time making it "slushy". Mine was frozen solid (I needed a lot for a suprise birthday party, so I made the night before) and even taking them out in advanced and hammering them didn't work so great. However, it was tasty - so I'm willing to give it another go ...
Very good. I used only 1 cup of sugar and it turned out great. Also added rum into it before freezing for an adult version.
Takes a long time to freeze so make a few days in advance to be sure.
This punch was SUPER good, but it did take some changes. The suguar, as most everyone has noted, is way too high. I knocked it down to one cup and still felt like it was a bit too sweet. I tried this with ginger ale and hated it, but Sprite tasted great in there. I served it at my wedding reception and had people taking it home in flasks when they left....they loved it so much. I had one punch bowl with Sprite added for the non-alcoholic version and a different bowl with Sprite and Malibu Rum added for the adult version. Both were delish!!!
Excellent punch for all occasions.
Use ginger ale. We did a "dry run" to sample which kind of soda and alcohol tasted best. We tried 7-up, sierra mist and sprite and the ginger ale was by far the best tasting. I added a half bottle of the super-huge size vodka and no-one could tell, we probably could have added more. Really great stuff! I reduced the sugar to 1 cup and put it in 2 gallon size zip-lock bags to freeze like other reviewers have suggested. Leave out for a few hours so that it is more of a slush and not hard as a rock.
A group of ladies and I get together once a month to play bunco so I brought this punch as a nice twist to our normal drink choices. Everyone loved it so much that it is now the groups OFFICIAL punch to be made for every bunco night! It made such a large amount so that I was able to add some watermelon rum to one and leave the other non-alcoholic so that everyone could be satisfied. Tasted just like a Jolly Rancher! YUM!!
I made it with raspberry jello and it was wonderful. You definately need to take it out of the freezer awhile before you want to serve it. It was still completely frozen after an hour. It was tasty when it finally melted, but not slushy. Maybe I made it wrong or my freezer's too cold! I'll definately try again.
This is fabulous! I served it a big family dinner and no one drank anything else. Just cut the sugar to 1 1/2 cups.
Made this for my wedding punch, everyone loved it, thank you for sharing!
Made this for my sister's baby shower today and it was a HIT! Every drop was gone by the end of the party and people were actually begging me for the recipe! I wonder if it would taste good with champagne, not for a baby shower of course. By the way, I only added 1 cup sugar and it was absolutely perfect! Any more and it would have been way too sweet.
This is very popular at our parties. I make a double batch and the only problem is trying to divide up the bowls of mixture to freeze and then find room in the freezer for it all. I may try freezer bags next time.
Everyone loved it! Ran out quickly and I made a double batch! Used 2 cups sugar instead of 2 1/2. Yummy!
The wait for freezing wasn't bad because I made alot of this a day before my party. It was the making it into a slush that was a turn off. I spent more time scraping the frozen mixture than entertaining! I will use this again, but I will freeze it in small freezer bags, small bowls or icecube trays for more ease. I gave this 4 1/2 stars.
This is excellent punch, which is enjoyed buy children and adults. It is always a hit when I make it. I enjoy having two punch bowls worth -- it the party is big, enough for the night, or sometimes, enough for two different nights!
I decreased sugar to 1 2/3 cups, used 30 oz. pineapple juice (5- 6 oz. cans)and increased lemon juice to 1 cup and used wild strawberry jello as previously suggested. Great but not too sweet and pineapple did not overpower other flavors. Received many requests for recipe.
Great....everyone loved it.
This punch was GREAT and a hit at my baby shower. Thanks for the recipe.
Wonderful punch! I was asked so many times for the recipe! I wish I would have chilled the soda before I put it in the bowl because it melted the slush pretty quickly. Still, tasted great! Huge hit. Thanks!
Made this for our Mother's Day luncheon. Everyone loved it! It was easy and delicious!
I made this punch for christmas one year. It is now the standard for all get togethers. I receive more requests to please bring your punch. Excellent receipe very delicious and easy. I used "wild strawberry" jello. It gives it a little something extra
I LOVED this recipe! So tasty and delicious! It was overly sweet for my taste buds, so I'd cut down on the sugar next time. Thank you for the awesome recipe!!!
This punch is easy to make, and yummy to drink. I used a diet soda and it was still great. This is a keeper!!
so good I made it last xmas and making it again this year...great to be able to add alcohol for the adults and give the kids some without...i actually had enough to have some for xmas and keep the rest in freezer to have again on new years
Still TOO SWEET when I made it with just 1 cup of added sugar. Just made it again for New Year's Day WITHOUT ANY added sugar and it's PERFECTLY sweet! This is now my "go to" SLUSH punch! The SLUSH texture really makes this punch extra special! My family truly LOVES it!
I made a huge error in judgement when I made this, only making half a recipe. Yikes, it went so fast, and was delicious. I served this at my daughter's graduation party, and even had teenage boys asking for the recipe! I froze the mix in Ziplock bags, and agree with other commenters to take the mix out of the freezer way in advance, it does take a long time to thaw. I think I will next time freeze the mix in ice cube trays and have single serving punch on hand. Wonderful recipe Valerie, thank you for sharing.
I hate to disagree, but I found nothing special about this punch, and it was also very sweet.
I made this for a baby shower and everyone loved it! I followed the recipe as written. I took the first bag out of freezer and put in punch bowl, and used a potato masher to break up somewhat and then added the lemon lime soda.
Made this for a friends baby shower- it was a hit and was asked for the recipe by more than 1 person.
Oh my this is a great punch! It is easy to put together and then freeze. Then on party day you just put it together. Thanks for this easy and tasty punch recipe!
Love the slush consistency! Halved the recipe and reduced the sugar. Saved an empty gallon hawaiin punch jug and filled that up.
I love this punch used it for a baby shower. But will use it for a girls night (bunko) with vodka or rum. Took it out 3 hours before shower. everybody liked it being slushy.
Made this for a baby shower and everyone was very complementary. Very good recipe and easy to make ahead of time.
I halved the sugar and that was gracious plenty. I also used the tip to mash the slush was a potato masher in the punchbowl and that made it impressively easy to work with.
This punch was very popular at my daughter's 3 year old birthday. It is like a slush so a good idea for summer parties. I added the juice of two limes, which perked it up nicely. My husband had to do the mixing, which he said was very time-consuming (despite that I had frozen the mixture in small bowls). He said he had to 'nuke' it to soften it. It would be fun to experiment with different jello and juice flavors ie; lime or raspberry.
Made this for a shower and thought I'd only end up making one batch. It went quickly, so I made the second batch up and everyone RAVED about it. Thanks! It is a really good punch for hot weather days. Wouldn't change a thing.
Love this recipe. I have made this recipe several times (cutting down on the sugar) and I usually freeze this in disposable plastic containers which I divided into 4 portions to make a small batch at any time. :)
Great punch, definately use 1 cup sugar, otherwise to sweet, found it to have a lot of pineapple taste pay use less pineapple next time.
This has to be the best holiday punch our family has had. We made this for Thanksgiving. This was the biggest hit at my house. It made enough for all 13 people. I should have made more! It was gone in a matter of minutes! I had to revert to cans of sprite after it was gone. Funny thing was, my wife made this the day before. When I took it out of the freezer, I couldn't stop eating it even before we added the soda. I was just happy with my spoon digging in it! It was very good, everyone in our family expects us to make it again for christmas.
Perfect punch! Doubling the recipe made four gallons of punch, and the 35 people at our Memorial Day cookout drank every drop! I reduced the sugar to 1.5 cups per recipe, used raspberry jello, and cut the 6 cups of water by using 3 cups of rum instead. For soda I added half gingerale and half lemon-lime and it was good and tangy. WARNING: we couldn't taste the rum! it seemed strong in the concentrate that I froze, but after adding the soda it was imperceptible. I think this is a good thing, because it still was potent, but thought I'd let ya'll know for your own taste.
WOW! Never gets watery, and was a complete hit. We went though 4 gallons. I also made the lemon lime soda slightly slushy, and it stayed cold for hours.
Yummmm, I've been keeping this in the freezer and just scooping some into a glass when I want to make a glass at a time. My kids loved it as a special New Years eve drink.
YUM! I split the recipe in half and made several batches so it was easier to pour in the zip lock bags. Make sure to take them out of the freezer in time to thaw out. It takes longer then you think. MAKE EXTRA! This punch tastes so good you will need more then you think. We drank every drop!
SOOO good! I followed directions as is for my sons b-day party. It made a ton, enough for another whole punch bowl a few days later. good spiked too!
Too sweet and did not turn slushy as promised.
This punch was a winner at my Scentsy party. Everyone commented on how good it tasted!
Very good,did decrease the sugar to 1 cup from 2.5 cups.
Very nice went down a storm with teenagers at 2 bbq's, we added less sugar as the jelly was sweetened.
Made this punch for a baby shower. Used 1 3/4 cup sugar and it was still way too much. That's the only reason I'm giving this recipe 4 stars instead of 5. I wanted blue punch so I made substitutions that someone else suggested: 1) berry blue jello instead of strawberry jello and 2) limeade instead of lemon juice and orange juice. Unfortunately the pineapple juice still turned the punch green. Had to use several drops of blue food color to get it to turn blue again. Next time I will likely try substituting pina colada for the pinapple juice. The picture I uploaded was taken right after I added the sprite so the punch looks really frothy and light colored. It turned a deeper aqua color as it melted. It did turn up very pretty and was a big hit with everyone.
Punch was a hit, but too sweet. Next time - no sugar. Thanks for sharing.
Great. Everyone loves it. Decreased the sugar.
Made this punch for Christmas Eve and it was awesome! The flavour was wonderful. The kids and adults both enjoyed it. Adults can add a bit of vodka or rum if they like. It was cold and refreshing and easy to make. Thanks for a recipe I will use for years to come.
I wish I could give this six stars. Only used one cup of sugar and sprite for the lemon-lime. Effortless and amazing. The guests had glass after glass.
I made this Christmas day and it was a huge hit with the family!
Excellent. Used 1c sugar and was too much for my taste with Gingerale. Would omit the sugar completely and double the jello. Needs 48hrs to freeze or can quickly freeze with dry ice!
Made this for my daughters wedding 3 years ago. everyone loved it. now im gonna make it for her baby shower!
Best punch I've ever had! Just add slices of fuji apple and mango; and vodka and you are set! I would like to try it with Splenda and sugar free jello next time!
I left out the sugar and it was plenty sweet enough. I doubled the recipe and found it to be a little watered down. Next time I'll use a little less water. The flavor was good and guests all liked it. it doesn't need too much time to get slushy before it just melts.
Good but makes a whole lot of slush!!!
This was a hit at a baby shower! Had requests for recipe.
This was a huge hit at our spring party. I altered it a bit to make it less sugary, and it was still fantastic. Highly recommended!
Everyone loves this punch ! Only change is less sugar
I make half the recipe every time I make something for a brunch, shower or party and it`s always a hit! add some whit wine, champagneésparkling wine or vodka for a kick!!
Best punch recipe I've found. Defrost in fridge the night before.
A big hit at our Christmas Party!
I made this for my daughter's wedding shower. Everyone loved it. I froze some rasberries and floated them in the punch. It looked beautiful. I too, only put one cup of sugar in it. I am making it again for another wedding shower.
I LOVE THIS PUNCH!! I originally found this for a baby shower I was hosting and I now make it for every occasion that I can. Sometimes I even make it just because. :) I usually spike the second batch with a bottle of vodka for the adults. It is wonderful!!
Made for my son's 8th grade graduation dance. Huge hit with all the kids.
YUMMY!! A hit for Bridal showers as well as holiday get togethers!!!
This recipe was loved by everyone no exceptions! I'll defintely make this again. I froze it in 2 2l containers (with a little leftover) and put the containers in the fridge the night before. They came out perfect. I think next time I'll add a bit less sugar. The end of the punch (once the slush was gone) was too sweet...that sweetness wasn't noticable when it was slushy though. Very convenient to be able to make ahead of time.
Wonderful! I reduced the sugar to one cup as suggested in the reviews. I may even reduce to 1/2 cup next time. This was the best punch I've ever had!
I made this for my sister-in-law and brother's baby shower on Saturday and made it for 100 servings (4 punch bowls full). We ran out in about 30 minutes! Everyone loved it to say the least. I sliced strawberries to float on top. It was beautiful and delicious!
This punch was a winner at our CHRISTmas dvd gathering!!!! I will become the .punch lady, among my peers. :-$
What a hit! There was not a drop left in the bowl...I will make this again and again.
Made this as written and it was a huge hit. Not a drop left.
I made this punch for a baby shower yesterday. my punch bowl was small so i cut everything in half. I put in my bowl a half cup of sugar, 3 cups of water, 1 box of the strawberry gelatin, half can of pineapple juice, 1/3 cup of lemon juice, half quart of orange juice and 1 2liter of sprite. If you are in a hurry and dont have time for all the freezing and making it a "slushy punch" i highly suggest doin like i did and just add VANILLA ICE CREAM!.. made this punch in less then 5 minutes by just mixing all of the ingredients together and making it cold by adding the vanilla ice cream. I promise you the punch was gone before half the shower was over. I actually asked the crowd myself what would they rate this punch on scale 1-10 and literally EVERYONE said an 11!.. Ill definitely be making this punch on every occassion!
Sooo good and slushy!! I wish it could stay slushy longer it's so yummy!
This is our new favorite punch. I made it for Christmas Day. I intended to only use one package but we ended up needing both because it was so popular. I used one strawberry jello and one cherry, and the pop I used was raspberry ginger ale. I cut the sugar to 1 1/2 cups but will cut down to 1 cup next time. I haven't EVER had a better punch.
We had this for a baby shower instead of the traditional sherbert punch. Everyone loved it! I couldn't get the 2nd batch fast enough. We'll be having this for XMAS too.
Never a drop left and everyone asks for the recipe. I keep some on hand in the freezer for parties. It's also great for adult night frozen cocktails :-) This is a permanent recipe for my house.
I made this recipe 8 times for a wedding reception this evening..it was a smashing success! Everyone loved it including the servers..absolutely delicious and very refreshing.
Wonderful! This batch goes a long way but it also goes FAST! We made it as described but with slightly less sugar and it was fantastic. Those who wanted to spiked their punch wih Coconut Rum which was a great combination - made a very tropical drink! This time for a baby shower I used one orange and one lemon jello to get a nice bright orange color, only 1/3 cup lemon juice, one frozen lemonaide concentrate, and only about a half cup of sugar. It is a nice change in flavor - slightly tarter with all the citrus and very good!
The punch was great we had it for a birthday party. It did not stay slushy. Maybe I should have refridgerated the soda. Everyone enjoyed it anyway. Thanks for the recipe.
Delicious! I served this at my son's 2nd birthday party and it was gone by the end of the party. Everyone drank this instead of soda. I took another reviewer's advice and let it cool an hour before putting it in freezer bags. I highly recommend this punch!
I saw this in a paper your recipe and could never find it again I made it last year with no recipe We loved this and finally found it thanks so much for sharing I use the old mold salad rings and there are pretty too I even add fruit to the bottom like cherries or other and when the ring is flipped over its really festive for the Holiday Happy Holidays
Wow, this is great! I am so picky about my punches, and this is excellent. I do like my punch sweet, so I added the full amount of sugar and I just love the taste of this!! Hopefully all of the baby shower guests will too!!
