Pineapple Lemonade Punch

Lemonade & summertime ~
They go hand & hand, don't they?

This recipe takes lemonade, fancies it up, & serves it in a punch bowl.
I can't find anything wrong with that!


I love recipes that are simple to prepare but pack a big punch in taste & looks.
This one is a check mark in both boxes.



Here are the ingredients you need to make this beautiful bowl of punch:

1 cup of Country Time lemonade mix
2 cups of cold water
1 46 oz can of chilled pineapple juice
2 cans {24 oz}  chilled Sprite
2 lemons, sliced
ice

Mix lemonade & water in pitcher & pour into the punchbowl.
Just before time to serve, pour in pineapple juice & gently stir.
Next pour in Sprite, a couple cups of ice cubes, & the lemon slices.

And that's it.
A very easy, quick, & refreshing summertime punch.

Here are some variations:
Any type of clear soda will work - 7 Up, Fresca, etc.
I used Sprite Zero.

Also, I made this for our church fellowship dinner, so I prepared it for ease of travel.
After mixing the lemonade & water, I poured in the pineapple juice -- all in one pitcher.
I poured it into the punchbowl & added the other ingredients just before serving.



Another Pinterest recipe marked off the list ;)

Give this one a try ... I think you'll like it.

  6. Another thing i have done with this recipe, which is a longtime favorit, freeze the sliced lemons with thin pineapple rings and marachino cherries, sprigs of mint, etc. in a circular or ring container filled with reconstituted lemonade mix (I susally make it a little on the weak side for these). It is really pretty and keeps the punch cool without diluting it...plus the fruit at the bottom is a wonterful treat. I have also used ginger ale for this and the color is still lovely...sort of accentuates the pineapple color!
