peppermint ice cream
ginger ale, chilled
I have been looking for a good peppermint punch for years. My mother has a very good recipe, but it is very time consuming and calls for a lot of ingredients. This punch took very little time to make, with few ingredients and tastes just as good as mom's old recipe.
This was a different punch. I couldn't find peppermint ice cream, so had to settle for peppermint bon-bon ice cream. Wasn't as sweet as I had expected. Needed something, but couldn't figure out what. I'll have to try it again, I think.
It was good...I added twice the amount of icecream like another poster mentioned and I think that was too much. It was a little too thick, like a milkshake more than a punch. Everyone at the party seemed to like it.
I increased the recipe and made enough for 144 servings for the children's Christmas program at Church. There wasn't a drop left. Everyone loved it. And I loved how easy it was to make. Great punch!
This punch was a wonderul surprise! I was nervous about making it for my Christmas Party, but it turned out to be the biggest hit of the night. You can't find peppermint ice cream just anywhere, but it's not that hard to find and worth it!! I have made it twice since then and given out the recipe to a ton of people.
Made this punch for Christmas Eve party. Had "flamingo-themed" decorations, so the color was perfect. Tasted delicious, but didn't look nice -- sort of "cottage-cheesy" on the top -- I think it was the butterfat. Frequent stirring didn't help much -- Used Edie's Grand brand ice-cream (only one I could find) but high fat content. Has anyone seen a low-fat peppermint ice-cream? Not usually a substitution I make for parties, but it might help the texture. Any other suggestions? HELP, I have another party on Monday ;-)
Quick, easy and tastey recipe. I made it for a work xmas party, everybody loved it and I didnt have a drop to take home with me. Thanks for the idea!!
I liked the flavor of this recipe alot. My punch seemed to get a little stiff on the top---perhaps I needed more/less milk? Or maybe it just needed to be stirred more often. That would be my only complaint--the punch itself, even with the stiff top, tasted delicious.
