Several years ago I went to a gorgeous backyard wedding reception in Granite Bay, California. I have no recollection of what they served to eat, but I can still remember the drink station because it was such a beautiful set-up. They had four large, glass drink dispensers filled with different colors of punch, and it looked like a pastel rainbow. The colors of the punches were lime green, orange, yellow, and this pink one that the hostess called Wedding Punch. They were all delicious, and I was able to get all of the recipes a few days later. I made some adjustments to the wedding punch and gave it a new name. My family loves it, and I think you will, too.
Okay, so let’s party! The first thing you’ll need is some of this. It’s non-alcoholic, and can be found where the frozen concentrated juices are kept.
You’ll also need some grenadine. In my grocery store, it’s near the club soda.
And you’ll need some Sprite. Fortunately my oldest daughter is here to lend us a hand. She loves parties.
Combine the piña colada mix with the grenadine, stirring well.
Add the Sprite and water, and then. . . . Party on!
