Just Punchy!

Per Liz' request, behold the almond punch recipe:


3 C sugar
2 C water
1 12oz frozen orange juice
1 12 oz frozen lemonade
2 tsp pure almond extract
2 tsp pure vanilla extract

You will need:
2 1-gallon containers
(I use empty milk jugs when travelling with this punch)
1 medium saucepan
8 C measuring cup

In saucepan, combine water and sugar. Bring just to boil. Add remaining ingredients. Pour mixture into large measuring cup. Note the measurement, and divide equally amongst the 2 1-gallon containers. Add cold water* to the gallon containers until full. Stir well, enjoy!

*Note: We've always enjoyed almond punch sans carbonation, but I saw some similar recipes online that utilized club soda in lieu of the cold, filler water.

Another note....on New Year's Eve our neighbor came over and offered us a taste of his "signature drink." Charlie Brown and I tasted, and looked at each other with shock - it had the same taste as almond punch! But with the perks of a good adult beverage ;) Mmmmm....

The mysterious combo? Squirt with Disaronno.

A low-cal version could also be made with Fresca and Disaronno.
