This slushy fruit punch has been used for years by my family at birthday parties, summer gatherings and now my children ask for it at breakfast...it is our favorite punch. We make it in an empty gallon milk jug.

I made this for a big family get-together. Everone loved it! It's great because it isn't too sweet or sour. A suggessted shortcut though: Dole makes orange and pineapple juice by the half gallon. When I ran out of the original recipe I used this instead and it tasted the same! I also added some cherries on top and a little bit of grenadine. Read More

Great punch. The instructions can use some help, though. I imagine using a one-gallon container works well if you're ony freezing the punch for about eight hours. I froze mine for about 18 hours, and it spilled all over my freezer. When I checked on it after about eight or ten hours, it looked fine, though. I let it thaw for about three hours, which wasn't quite long enough. Four to five hours would probably be about right. If you're only freezing it for eight hours, two hours for thawing is probably correct. Basically, use a much larger container and add an hour or two onto the thawing time if you're going to freeze it for more than just overnight. Read More

I made this for my son's birthday party. I also made an extra batch, poured a decorative bundt pan full of the punch and froze it. I put it in the punch bowl instead of ice, so the punch would not get watered down. This is a great recipe! Read More

I served this punch at my 6 yr olds luau birthday party. I doubled the recipe and still did not have enough. Everyone loved it and wanted more. I had a little trouble w/the fizz overflowing from the milk jug - but other than that it was easy to make and tasted great. I will make it again. Read More
