Holiday Punch recipe and a Giveaway from Lenox

The holidays are here and we will be making up all the festive food to eat. Sweets and eats are among the top of the inspiring Christmas food but don't forget that special drink that goes along with the delicious celebration meal.



Luscious Slush Punch


2 1/2 cups white sugar
6 cups water
2 (3 ounce) packages strawberry flavored gelatin mix
1 (46 fluid ounce) can pineapple juice
2/3 cup lemon juice
1 quart orange juice
2 (2 liter) bottles lemon-lime flavored carbonated beverage

In a large saucepan, combine sugar, water, and strawberry flavored gelatin. Boil for 3 minutes. Stir in pineapple juice, lemon juice, and orange juice. Divide mixture in half, and freeze in 2 separate containers. When ready to serve, place the frozen contents of one container in a punch bowl, and stir in 1 bottle of lemon-lime soda until slushy.

Lenox the market leader in quality tabletop, giftware and collectibles would love to offer one of Annie's Home readers something special to serve that drink in. Lenox is offering a set of four O2xygen Balloon Wine Glasses to one very special reader of Annie's Home.

  1. I love pomegranate juice. What I have done is mixed even part pomegranate juice with orange juice (or a citrus juice)and seltzer water or 7-up. My sister likes a diet drink so I put in diet 7-up in place of the regular pop.

  18. This isn't much of a recipe, but it's something that my uncle had husband drink at our annual Christmas Party.

    You need; 1 shot chilled 100 proof peppermint schnapps, Hershey's chocolate syrup.

    How to make: Drink shot, then proceed to squirt a Hershey's syrup chaser in your mouth. Tastes just like a peppermint patty, with a kick.

  97. My favorite HOT holiday drink is Baileys original (a shot) in a mug of white hot WHITE chocolate and LOAD it up with Redi whip. Sprinkle a tiny bit of cinnamon on top!

    My fav COLD holiday drink is really a GRasshopper. We have always made these in a blender with vanilla ice cream, creme de menth and creme de cocoa. THEN put a tiny candy can on the side of glass OR add a creme de menthe chocolate layered candy or two. YUMMMY!!!
