Preparation time: 15-20 minutes. Makes 1 gallon or about 20 six ounce servings.


  • 1 six ounce can of frozen lemonade concentrate
  • 1 eight ounce can of crushed pineapple
  • 1 ten ounce package of frozen strawberries, thawed
  • 3 quarts of ginger ale, chilled
  • Crushed ice or ice cubes



  • Combine the lemonade concentrate, pineapple and strawberries in your blender
  • Blend on a medium-high speed (7) until mixture is smooth
  • Pour mixture into your punch bowl over ice (wait - see note in box below)
  • Add ginger ale


If you want, you can garnish by floating small, thin slices of strawberries in the punch

The punch mixture (minus the ginger ale) can be made in advance and stored in your refrigerator in a covered container and finished later by adding the ginger ale just before serving.

How do I keep punch cold without ice cubes (which would dilute the beverage)? Here is a good tip. After making the first part of the recipe (no ginger ale), scoop out some of the mixture into several small containers (jello molds or ice cube trays?) and freeze ahead of serving time. As the punch bowl needs to be refilled, add the frozen version and some more ginger ale. It will melt, adding to the volume, but will not dilute the punch. Cool! to speak! :-)

Enjoy your easy party punch and the company of those you share it with! It is a real restaurant recipe as are all the recipes on the website. - Donna
