it's tasty and feels fresh.. but..it's too sweet. you see how many concentrate juice? 4 cans! and add another 3 cups of sugar. it's just too much... i have to add more..more water. or cut back the juice concentrate into 1 can each and no more sugar. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I served this punch at an anniversary party. I did however replace the simple syrup with Diet Sprite. Everyone loved it! I will definitely serve it again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I really like the punch! Only thing I changed was the amount of simple syrup. I cut it in half. I thought the other things had enough sweetness. I guess it depends on your own sweet tooth! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is a great recipe! It is not too sweet and for those who said its too sweet should not be drinking punch. I have made this punch for large banquets for hundreds of people and it is always a big hit. I am always asked how I made it by those that drink it. This is a great punch for any occasion, simple to make with a great refreshing taste. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This punch was so sweet that we couldn't even drink it. We tried to add more water and club soda to try and make it drinkable. No one at our party liked it!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
We made this in my foods class today. It was AWESOME!! We used all of the simple syrup called for and I didn't find it too sweet at all. Meh, personal tastes differ, I guess. It was still great punch. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I have made this punch for years, but with a couple of changes. I don't put simple syrup in, use diet 7-up or sprite, and then put orange or pineapple sherbet instead of the frozen strawberries. It's always a huge success and the sherbet gives it a festive taste. Using the diet soda helps cut the sweetness a bit. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this for a shower this weekend. I found it in my Paula Dean cookbook. Reading the recipe, I thought it was going to be too sweet, but it seemed easy and quick so I tried it anyway. But I used unsweetened sparkling water instead of the Sprite. It was still very sweet, but tolerable. I decided to check the Internet today to see if there was a misprint in the cookbook, but it was the same. If I have the occasion the make it again, I will use less sugar. item not reviewed by moderator and published

We made this as our non-alcoholic drink for a Hawaiian wedding party that we hosted for 80 of our friends. We rented a large glass decorative dispenser with a spout. This punch was a huge hit. We purchased enought for 3 batches as we had no idea how many people were planning on drinking alcohol. We made ice cubes with extra pinapple juice and strawberries also a few with orange juice. It looked AMAZING in the dipenser and people LOVED it. We went through two solid batches and in the end added an extra bottle of Sprite to thin it out a little. We preferred extra fizz and also halved the simple syrup. So this evening we were invited to a house warming backyard BBQ for a new neighbor. We still had lots of premade icecubes in a large bowl in the freezer. The sliced strawberries still looked awesome so we made a full batch of this for the party and divided it into two pitchers. Again halved the simple syrup with extra Sprite. I probably should have made more since by the end of the party this was the new mixed drink with shots of vodka for drinkers and just plain for non-drinkers.
