Happy 2012 to all my faithful and supportive readers! If I was a drinking woman, I would raise my glass to your amazing success for the upcoming year. So instead, I raise my glass full of this intoxicating mixture :)
This is a recipe people insist on getting before leaving the party. It is so simple, but kicks all other lousy party punches/slushes right out the door. This is the perfect way to welcome in the new year for those who like life on the sober side. Yes, I'm sure you could add some alcohol, but please don't ask me for recommendations. I have no clue! (insert your favorite Mormon joke here....)
(makes enough to fill a large punch bowl twice)
2 - 46 ounce bottles of cran-raspberry juice
1 bottle pina colada mix
2 - 2 liter bottles of raspberry ginger ale
1. Mix together the juice and pina colada mix until combined. Divide it between two gallon size freezer bags and lay them on a large cookie sheet in your freezer until solid.
2. Remove the bags from the freezer 30 minutes before serving and allow to melt slightly. Use a rolling pin to smash one bag of the frozen mixture. Dump into the punch bowl and add one bottle of ginger ale. Repeat with the remaining frozen mixture and ginger ale once the first batch is gone.
