Cook for the Cure, Frozen Citrus Party Punch Recipe

Over the years I’ve been to my fair share of birthday parties, family get togethers and celebrations. One place I always enjoy those celebrations the most is my older sister’s house. Between the shenanigans and chatter of relatives, there’s always one thing that draws us together the most …. the party punch. It’s the one consistent drink at every party and let me tell you, it’s to die for!

This citrus party punch is the perfect blend of sweet and tangy with a cool slushy consistency that both kids and adults will enjoy.

    We’re hosting a party for a bunch of families later this month (WooHoo, I won a bounce house and it’s a bounce party!) This would be a great punch for that…thanks!

      Tiffany, I started photographing outside now that I can go out and not freeze my tooshie off. :) Natural light does wonders for photos.

    I am loving all these frozen treats and drinks this week. I have a punch almost like that but it uses strawberry jello and apricot nectar. It is so hot here that this would be so refreshing.
