Non-Alcoholic Holiday Drinks

Best-Lemonade-EverWhat can we say folks?

It’s that time of the year when you can justifiably celebrate. You made it through. You survived the end of the world. Time to get with the family and friends and let loose for the holidays. If you’re looking for an alcohol-free way to celebrate, we’ve got your back, with these delicious drinks you can share with everyone.

The drinks

1.  Best Lemonade Ever Recipe (Serves 20). You can’t go wrong with a good old-fashioned glass of lemonade. It’s not summertime, but it is always refreshing and the new year is a time to refresh, right?

You will need: 8 cups of water, 1 and 3/4 cups of white sugar, 1 and 1/2 cups of lemon juice (source)

  1. In a small saucepan, combine sugar and 1 cup water. Bring to boil and stir to dissolve sugar. Allow to cool to room temperature, then cover and refrigerate until chilled.
  2. Remove seeds from lemon juice, but leave pulp. In pitcher, stir together chilled syrup, lemon juice and remaining 7 cups water.

2.  Party Punch VI Recipe (Serves 34). That’s right. It’s a party. Can’t have a party without punch.

You will need: 1/2 gallon strawberry sherbet, 2 (64 fluid ounce) bottles fruit punch, and 1 (2 liter) bottle lemon-lime flavored carbonated beverage, chilled (source)

Next, place sherbet in punch bowl. Pour in fruit punch and lemon-lime soda.

3.  Green Punch (Serves 20). Here is an alternative punch recipe. We’re all for mixing it up.

You will need: 2 (3 ounce) packages lime flavored Jell-O® mix, 1 quart hot water, 1 (46 fluid ounce) can pineapple juice 2 (12 fluid ounce) cans frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed, 2 cups white sugar, 4 1/2 cups cold water, 2 liters ginger ale (source)

  1. In a large saucepan dissolve the gelatin in 1 quart of hot water. Allow to cool.
  2. When gelatin is cool, pour into a large punch bowl, Stir in pineapple juice, orange juice concentrate, sugar and 4 1/2 cups cold water. Pour in ginger ale just before serving.

Have some fun!

    Mmm, those all sound delicious! I love lemonade and it is very good for you, less all of the sugar. Try it with a sweetener substitute like xylitol!

    I love lemonade! All of the lemon juice really helps keep your system clean, very good for the kidneys.
