This punch is so delicious, I sometimes make a batch without the rum because the kids enjoy it as much as the adults!

I made this punch for New Year's Eve and my sons were saying that Peppermint and Eggnog didn't even sound good so when they tried it they had negative preconceptions and still they loved it and raved! I thought it sounded good and it tasted GREAT! Everyone loved it! It was so refreshing and creamy! Not heavy at all. This is my favorite punch! I do not use Rum or any alcohol and it is perfect without it! Read More

I could not find any peppermint ice cream so I used vanilla ice cream and added a few drops of peppermint extract while stirring. Couldn't tell the difference. Absolutely delicious. A big hit. Read More

I have made this punch 4 years in a row and it just gets better and better! The flavors don't sound like they go together but they do. With or without the rum the punch is wonderful! Read More

I made this on Christmas Eve and loved it. It was really a hit and the first ever punch to be polished off quickly at our house. There was no left-over dilema with this one. The Peppermint Ice Cream was pink and quite pretty. Read More

Made this (minus the alcohol) for a church fellowship meal and it was enjoyed so much that my children requested another batch for Christmas Eve dinner. It has a refreshing flavor and looks so pretty in the punch bowl! Lovely pink color frothy and festive.:) Read More
