I wanted a fun green drink for our annual Irish dinner, and made this one up the day before, hoping it would turn out. Luckily, it turned out well!
The kids LOVED it, I’m not sure how much my 5 year old drank, but I’m guessing that’s why she was bouncing off the walls at bedtime 😉
Next time I might try making it with seltzer water for a more tart punch, but I just loved how green this was 🙂
LIME SLUSH (OR LEPRECHAUN PUNCH)
2 1/2 cups sugar
4 cups water
large lime jello
1 cup lime juice (unsweetened)
1 cup lemon juice (or an additional cup lime juice)
46 oz pineapple juice
To serve: 2 (2 liters) lemon lime soda (or ginger ale)
Bring the sugar, water, and jello to a boil in a pot. Let boil for 3 minutes, then stir in the remaining ingredients. Let cool, then divide between 2 gallon ziplock bags and freeze overnight or longer.
To serve add one 2 liter of lemon lime soda to each bag (or ginger ale) in a punch bowl. Break up with a wooden spoon.
