My sister's friend gave her this recipe years ago to use at our parents' 25th wedding anniversary party. We never had a name for it other than Aileen's Punch! This is very refreshing and so easy to put together. I recommend making an ice ring out of extra pineapple juice or apricot nectar.

incredible punch!! I had to make multiple copies for my book club. You can find the apricot nectar in the mexican foods section (look for Jumex brand juices). Read More

I made this for a gathering and based on the reviews expected this to be outstanding and receive a lot of favorable comments. I tried it first and was disappointed. Odd combination of flavors and a little strong. Perhaps adding a bit more lemon-lime soda would have helped. I waited for comments from guests requests for the recipe etc. like other reviewers have experienced but...nothing. No one asked for the recipe and no one said the punch was good. I've had much better punches and apparently my guests weren't impressed either. Read More

This punch was FANTASTIC. I made the entire quantity called for without thinking too hard about it (with only a few friends coming over) so naturally we had a bunch left over at the end of the night (even though everyone loved it and was slurping down cup after cup) -- it makes a ton. This is the super-cool part though: since I didn't want to throw the rest away I stuck it in the fridge (even though I was pretty sure that I was being a moron since the soda would obviously lose its fizz before I would drink or serve it again...). Well FOUR DAYS LATER I pulled it out of the fridge mixed it with some more lemon-lime soda and it was JUST AS GOOD AS THE FIRST TIME. This stuff ROCKS. Every single person who tried it absolutely loved it. Couldn't get enough. Read More

Mmm this was so good and refreshing not overwhelmingly sweet like many punches. I couldn't find a big can of apricot nectar so I used four small cans of peach nectar. Also I used diet 7-Up. By the way it calls for the small can of limeade I didn't figure that out until after I shopped so I just used half of the big one. Read More

I made this for a baby shower today and got great reviews from both kids and adults. I really liked how quick and easy this was to put together. I made an ice ring as suggested with some of the punch and slices of orange lemon and lime. I think it would also be pretty just to float the fruit slices on top of the punch. This recipe is definitely a keeper! Read More

We made this punch for our Church dedication and it was a 'HIT'. We had over 300 people on Mothers Day and were able to plan for that many using the tools you provide. Thanks so much for this great beverage. Read More

Excellent punch. This is my new favorite. I used fresca instead of sprite or 7-up. It was gone in no time I should have bought the stuff to make a second round!!! YUMMMM! Read More

I just served this at my friend's baby shower and it was a BIG HIT!! Everyone raved about it and several people insisted on the recipe! The ice ring didn't work too well since it was just the juices. It fell apart when we put it in the punch. It would have worked better if I had used some Sprite in the actual ring. It would have frozen harder and more solid. Read More
