Pot ‘O Gold Punch

Every St. Patrick’s Day since 2010 has been celebrated with my wonderful friend Kate. For a history of our holidays see last year’s {failed} Irish Bread Braid. I am trying the braid again tomorrow and hope to update that post, so wish me luck!

As I was pregnant last year and Kate doesn’t particularly enjoy boozy beverages, we made a non-alcoholic punch. By all means, add some vodka if you feel so inclined.

I will warn you though, there’s a lot of sugar in this pot ‘o gold. I had a doctor’s appointment the following day and my sugar levels were through the roof. Whoops. Eh, the little guy turned out just fine… I type as he’s screaming, fighting a nap.

This year it’s just the three of us and it’s going to seem pretty lonely. I’ll be sticking with my tradition and make meatloaf and mashed potatoes. Along with a green vegetable of some kind – something the little guy might eat.

Pot ‘O Gold Punch

Ingredients:

  • 1 pkt (0.2oz) lemonade Kool-Aid powder
  • 1 C sugar
  • 1 1/2 C lemon-lime soda
  • 1 1/2 C citrus soda
  • 2 C pineapple juice
  • 6 C cold water
  • decorating sugar for garnish (optional)

Steps:

  1. Combine all ingredients in a large pitcher. Keep cold until ready to serve.
  2. If desired: Place decorating sugar on a shallow plate. Place the lip of the glasses in water then coat with the sugar. Pour punch into rimmed glasses.
