The holidays have so, so much delicious food. And often for friends’ parties, potlucks, family events, or even work events, you need to bring a dish to share. And you want it to be easy, tasty, and memorable, and fit just right in your already-packed schedule.
Enter: Grinch Punch. Named for its festive green color, your friends and fam will instantly like it
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 6 tablespoons
- 1/3 cup evaporated milk
- ½ teaspoon almond extract
- 12 drops neon green food coloring
- 1 bottle (2 liters) lemon-lime soda, chilled
- 2 pints vanilla ice cream
In a large saucepan, combine the sugar and the 6 tablespoons of water. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the sugar is dissolved. Remove from the heat, and stir in the evaporated milk and almond extract. Transfer mixture to a serving bowl; cover and refrigerate until serving. Just before serving, stir in food coloring and soda; top with scoops of ice cream. Makes about four quarts.
Quicker than baking or making a casserole, but still delicious to share! And now you won’t be stuck with the last-minute diet coke two-liter someone belatedly bought for drinks.
Making it through the holiday season isn’t always as easy as a fun bowl of punch. If you’re finding yourself stressed out and want to check up on your health, click here to contact us. We look forward to hearing from you!
