Traders Punch is a family friendly punch that all ages can enjoy. It has grenadine syrup that is used to make Shirley Temples. I love the taste of all the flavors together.
The ginger ale gives it a nice fizz, and the grenadine syrup mixed with the orange juice and lemonade are such a nice blend, your guests will really enjoy this traders punch. I must say, that it is a little addicting.
Are you all getting ready for New Years? This traders punch is a great way to start out the year. Whether you are having guests over or enjoying a quiet evening at home, try making some traders punch. I like to add lime slices instead of lemon, but you are welcome to do either.
So what are some of the New Year’s goals that you are thinking about? I know that it is time for me to get rid of 10 extra pounds, and to start getting out of bed earlier in the morning, and I could also be a little more consistent about exercising.
The longer I wait, the stiffer I get. It is time to get a move on. I do not want to be old yet! I think that the coming year is going to be the best year ever. But I hope that Christmas doesn’t come as fast as it did this year.
It seems like we blinked and it was Christmas again. Another good goal is to journal. I know that a lot of times, it would be nice to go back and read what I did 20 years ago and how much I got done in a day. However, I would start a journal and write in it for about a week and then I did not keep writing in it.
I have about 10 journals with a week or two’s worth of writing. I love going back and reading when I was 8 years old or even 10 years old, they are so simple and they do not say a lot. It is fun to see my hand writing and even how I have learned to become a better writer through the years.
Since New Years is almost here and we know that we want to make traders punch, what are some of the things that you like to do on New Years Eve? Some years we have gone to friends’ homes and played games.
Then as our kids have grown, we stayed home. Now it seems like our kids have other places to be with their friends. So my husband and I watch a little TV and then last year, I was so tired, I did not even stay up until midnight.
It is rather hard to sleep, though because of all the fireworks. I am not sure why we have fireworks for every holiday, but I guess if you are the owner of a fireworks stand, that you are very happy that so many holidays have fireworks now a days.
I sure hope that your New Years is everything that you are hoping for and that you try traders punch, and I hope that you enjoy it as much as we do. I also love to put some pomegranate seeds in my cups, but you do not have to.
Have a wonderful New Year!!
