HOW DO YOU MAKE PINEAPPLE PUNCH?
If you’ve got a good stirring spoon and a pitcher, you’re set to make this punch. To start, a sweet and tart blend of frozen limeade, pineapple juice, and lemon lime soda are mixed together in a pitcher. To top it off, fresh chunks of pineapple and raspberries are added and mixed in to make the perfect summer drink.
Any pineapple juice will work for this recipe just be sure to pay attention to whether it’s concentrated or not, this will change what you need to add with it. If you don’t like the idea of soda, plain sparkling water is a great substitution. This will make the mixture a touch healthier and less sweet.
If you’re not too keen on chopping up a fresh pineapple, canned pineapple chunks work just fine. However, I prefer the tart freshness of a fresh pineapple. For some reason, I can always tell the difference and prefer a fresh pineapple taste over canned any day.
