We have had some extremely warm weather in Santa Cruz recently, and I just had to make this punch. It is so refreshing when it’s hot out! We have been welcoming the sunshine after all of the storms and rain. This is really sticky…my husband accidentally spilled some (twice) on our kitchen floor and I don’t think we’ll ever get it all up! It has quite a bit of sugar, and would taste great with 1 cup less if you like things on the tangier side. I made this for the missionaries in the summertime and they chugged it!
Recipe courtesy The Sisters Cafe.
1 6 oz. can frozen limeade
11 cups water
3 cups sugar
2 quarts lemon lime soda or 7-UP
fresh lime wedges
Mix limeade, water and sugar until dissolved. Freeze, stirring often. 2 hours before serving, thaw mixture in punch bowl. 1 hour before serving, add lemon lime soda or 7-UP. Garnish with fresh lime wedges.
This also tastes great if you put some in a mug and stick it in your freezer, eating when slushy with a spoon.
