PEPPERMINT PUNCH (a re-post)
The gorgeous photo of delicious punch was found on tasteofhome.com, so I made it for a party I was hosting. LOTS of recipe requests for this refreshing and festive punch.
I've also been known to make individual peppermint floats by putting a couple of scoops of Peppermint Ice Cream in a tall glass and pouring lemon-lime soda over it. Try it.
This punch is a cool thirst quencher and fits most holiday-themed parties at Christmastime.
YOU WILL NEED:
2 liters of lemon-lime soda
1 10 oz. jar of strawberry jelly
2 quarts peppermint ice cream (I used Kroger brand, but it's seasonal and not always easy to find)
candy canes *Optional
Heat jelly in 2 cups of the soda on stove till jelly is melted. Set aside to cool.
When cooled, add to punch bowl, along with ice cream and soda--stir well.
You can place candy canes on the side of the bowl, and/or on the side of the glass/cup like I did in this photo.
