Recipe Friday--Amaretto Punch

This punch is so yummy. Also, you make it ahead, freeze it, and use what you need. Every time I've served it, I've needed it all. I once took it as my offering to a house of bereavement. It was much more popular that the baked hams and chocolate cakes.

The whole recipe only has two cups of Amaretto, so it is not very potent. I always put a decanter of vodka by the punch bowl so people can do what they have to do.

Amaretto Punch

  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 quart sugar
  • 1 (46 ounce) can unsweetened pineapple juice
  • 1 (12 ounce) can frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed and undiluted
  • 1 (6 ounce) can frozen lemonade concentrate, thawed and undiluted
  • 2 quarts water
  • 2 cups Amaretto
  • 2 tablespoons vanilla
  • 1 tablespoon almond extract

Make a simple syrup by combining sugar and boiling water. Cool and put in quart containers or plastic freezer bags Freeze. Take out as needed and let stand at room temperature until slushy.
