A Bloggy Progressive Dinner: Holiday Drinks

This week I am participating in the Second Annual Bloggy Progressive Dinner. Last year's party was so much fun, I couldn't resist. Today JessieLeigh at Parenting the Tiniest of Miracles is hosting holiday drinks. The two she has shared--cranberry sparkler and homemade latte--look delicious! Head over and check out all of the other yummy drinks that others have shared, too.


Now for my contribution today. One of my good friends always makes this at the holidays and it is SO delicious! I'm planning to make it this season.
Banana Jubulant Punch
(from my friend Ashley)
1/2 cup sugar
2 sm. pkgs. lemon jello
2 cups hot water
1 lg. can (46 oz.) orange juice
1 lg. can (46 oz.) pineapple juice
1 sm. bottle real lemon juice
6 cups cold water
4 mashed bananas
1 qt. ginger ale (well chilled)
*****
Mix all ingredients together except bananas and ginger ale. Freeze for about 2 hours before serving, then set out to thaw. Mix bananas into ginger ale, then stir into the frozen mixture--it should be *slushy*. Makes about 40 servings.

Also, here is another yummy holiday punch that I shared at last year's party. Enjoy!

That looks (and sounds!) so delicious and wonderful for a party for all ages! Does the lemon juice prevent the bananas from "browning" over time? I love the idea of all those fruit flavors... sounds almost a tad tropical in the midst of all this cold. :)

Yes, I would imagine that's what the lemon juice does. And it works!

It's the only one I've ever seen,too. I was skeptical when I first had it, but one taste won me over.
