St. Paddy's Punch

Everybody gets to be a little bit Irish on St. Patrick's Day don't you think? It is a holiday that celebrates triumph over famine and oppressors. If you have ever overcome anything in your life then celebrate that. I am posting a recipe for a yummy St. Patrick's Day Punch that can be served to all of your party guests. Enjoy! Oh, and don't forget to wear a tad bit of green so you won't get pinched. Aren't these green, party shoes adorable? Cuter than a shamrock or a leprechaun hiding beneath a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow. LOL


2 liters of Gingerale or Sprite
1 qt. lime sherbert
1 large can of chilled pineapple juice
1 large container of frozen lemonade

In a large punchbowl, stir together all ingredients until the sherbert and frozen lemonade melts and makes a milky green punch with foam on the top. Garnish with sliced lemons and marischino cherries if you desire. Serve chilled in clear glasses.

Hello again to all of my blog friends and visitors. I've been away much longer than I had hoped due to major technical difficulties. I am so thrilled to be back and also to know that many of you took a moment to stop by for a visit and stroll through an older post or two. It is so much fun to reminisce.

So much has happened since I last made a post. I totally missed the Valentine's Day post that I wanted to share. I guess I will just have to save it for next year.

Also, if you are a friend or visitor to Hugs and Keepsakes, let's join our hearts together and send BIG HUGS out to the people of Japan by collectively keeping them in our prayers each day. We may be across the world from them and from the devastation of this major Earthquake but our prayers and God's love will reach them. Thanks
