"To die for! When I entertain a crowd, I make a non-alcoholic base, then have decanter of equal parts vodka and peach schnapps next to the pitcher so people can liven it up if desired."

A very good idea for parties and get togethers where alcohol isn't desired. In fact, this negates the need for alcohol at all. Very nice.

I tired this and evryone like dit. A bit on the "zingy" side. I would suggest adding a lot more coconut milk to make it milder. Also, try making cranberry juice ice cubes to go along with it.

Very tangy and interesting drink for the non-alcoholic party set. Would be interested to try it with alcohol. I found it to be very refreshing, although I couldn't drink much more than a single glass. I would actually use slightly less grapefruit concentrate if I made it again because it was a bit acidic and harsh to taste.

I should have known better with grapefruit juice in the recipe, but I just couldn't get over the sharp taste and smell of this drink... I had hoped for something kids and adults could enjoy on New Year's Eve without alcohol... this wasn't it.

This was good after I doubled the coconut milk. While I really liked the fact that this punch is not sickeningly sweet, the grapefruit juice concentrate was a little overpowering. I will be making it again with a little less grapefruit concentrate, more cranberry concentrate, and more coconut milk.

I really liked this mix, but I also really like grapefruit juice. My husband thinks this is a tad tart for him. I used ruby red grapefruit juice and a whole can of coconut milk. I also mixed this with raspberry flavored sparkling water for a yummy punch.

Instead of water, I used carbonated water. I also made 'frozen' style drinks using the mix of concentrates and coconut as the mixer, adding ice and carbonated water to the blender. It is very good!!
