Summer Punch

Summer Punch drink recipe!

This punch is perfect for all those summer gatherings!  It’s tart, colorful & full of flavor.  It’s a perfect tropical drink, full of #summervibes!

It’s time to bring out the punch bowl…

Or pitcher…

Or larger mason jar!

It’s summer, after all! It's the magical time of the year where the drinks have only requirement:

They have to be ice cold.  I don’t care what container the drinks are in as long as they’re ice cold!

Punch bowls are super pretty, but in the summer, ain’t nobody got time for that! Especially whith drinks being served outside.  The bug situation is ridiculous here, so I prefer a drink that's covered at all times!  I don’t want any flies getting in my delicious drinks!

When I was developing this recipe, I wanted it to be a summertime Grandma’s Punch.  G-Ma’s punch is delicious, but I wanted more kick!  More summer!  I achieved that by using Fruit Punch flavored Kool-Aid.  It has the perfect summertime tropical tart that I was longing for…

Almost too much tart.  It was almost too sour for me to drink!  I needed to lighten it up a bit.  What makes Grandma’s Punch so good is the sherbet, but I wanted my summer punch to be its own thing & not just 1 ingredient different!

Then I remembered Superman Ice Cream!

If you’re unfamiliar with the elusive Superman Ice Cream, let me tell you:  it’s awesome!  It is only available in certain areas, which makes it an incredibly rare find.  It’s basically a vanilla ice cream & sherbet mix of awesomeness!  It’s so colorful & I knew it would be the perfect addition to a summer punch!

Of course, if Superman Ice Cream isn’t available in your area you can use either sherbet or a mixture of vanilla ice cream & sherbet.  I’m sure it will still taste great!  I used Superman because it’s delicious & available in my area, but the flavors really are similar to a mix of ice cream & sherbet.
