Helpful hints

  • Chill ingredients before assembling. Adjust ice as needed.
  • Use diet lemon-lime soda for a diabetes-friendly lower carbohydrate punch. Count as 12 grams carbohydrate, one Carbohydrate Choice.
  • This is a quick punch to make, and it is very refreshing. It’s great for any last-minute preparation for a party or to serve unexpected guests since most of the ingredients have a long shelf life.
  • Pour the soda in the mixture slowly to prevent foam.
