  • 4 packages unsweetened strawberry (or any desired flavor) powdered drink mix
  • 3 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 46-oz. cans pineapple juice
  • 2-liter bottle ginger ale
  • 4 quarts water

Step 1: In a large punch bowl, combine the drink mix with pineapple juice, water and sugar. Stir until the sugar and drink mix are completely dissolved. Add in the ginger ale and stir until the punch is well combined. Chill and serve.

This recipe can easily be halved or doubled and the ginger ale can be omitted for those who do not like carbonation. For extra flavor and variety, try adding in frozen fruit, such as grapes or strawberries, or sherbet, and alcohol may be added for adult gatherings. For this type of punch, vodka works best.
