Holiday PunchI first sampled this punch at a retirement party last weekend, and I had to get the recipe.  It was so good!  This Holiday Punch is the perfect addition to any special event whether it is for a retirement party, Thanksgiving, Christmas, a birthday party, or a graduation.  It is sweet, with a hint of sour from the lemonade.  The color also goes perfectly with my Thanksgiving decorations, which is great!  So let’s get out our ingredients and put some punch in your next holiday gathering.

Start by getting out a big bowl. I have a large tupperware bowl that accommodates everything.  Your bowl needs a capacity of at least 118 ounces or 14.75 cups. Then pour in your pineapple juice.

adding sugarStir everything together and pour the mixture equally into two 1-gallon sized ice cream tubs.

putting punch in ice cream containersLeave the two ice cream containers in the freezer at least overnight. On the morning of the party put the ice cream containers in the refrigerator.  When you are ready to serve your punch, scoop one ice cream container of punch out into the punch bowl and add chilled ginger ale. (You will need a total of three 2-liters to have enough ginger ale for the two ice cream buckets. The ratio is one and a half 2-liters ginger ale per ice cream bucket of punch)
