We came up with this recipe for my brother's wedding reception. We wanted to serve something that was easy and quick to fix, yet good at the same time. After a few tries, we ended up with this recipe...and a lot of compliments.

WARNING! Adjust your serving sizes accordingly! I used this at a grooms dinner and it was a big hit. We went thru 6 gallons for about 35 people. Spectacular! WHO WOULD EVEN TRY TO SERVE THIS IN 4 oz. SERVINGS???? Its very, very good and the line would have been perpetual if I used 4oz. cups. I used Fresca for the carbonated beverage...and this would be great with Vodka in it too! Here are my calculations for the gallon size recipe. 1 Gallon Recipe • 2 (12 fluid ounce) cans frozen raspberry lemonade concentrate • 5-1/3 cups water • 1-1/4 tsp. lime juice • 2 (12 fluid ounce) cans or bottles lemon-lime flavored carbonated beverage (I use Fresca) • 1-3/4 cups crushed ice • Fresh raspberries, lime & lemon wedges to float in lemonade Makes 16 ~ 8oz. servings Read More

I think this would have been better without the soda. That is just my preference though. Read More

My guests loved this punch -- it's not too sweet but still has zip to it. Since I couldn't find rasberry lemonade in my grocery store I used one 12 oz. frozen lemonade and one 12 oz white grape/rasberry frozen juice since I doubled the receipe. Everyone wanted my receipe! Read More

This is a very refreshing beverage. The first time I wanted to make it I had no lemon-lime carbonated soda but I did have a liter of Club Soda. I eliminated the water and lemon-lime just used club soda and it turned out really good. The lemon-lime adds additional sweetness. I prefer the club soda. But this recipe is definately a keeper!

My only complaint about this recipe is that it doesn't warn you that you should make double the amount you think you need. I made a double recipe and it still wasn't enough! Great easy punch for a party. Read More

Heavenly!! I used Sprite b/c its more "bubbly" and no mint b/c I didn't have any. Very refreshing beverage that will quench your thirst during the hottest of summer days. Drank so much of this until I was almost full! A keeper for sure! Read More

This gave ordinary lemonade a kick! I used lemon/lime club soda. I put the mixture into a soda bottle so it would not go flat. Read More

I needed a quick but pretty punch for my sister's lingerie shower. This punch was perfect. I recieved tons of compliments. I enhanced the punch by adding 1 can of frozen lemonade concentrate - then added sliced lemons to float on top! Read More
