Yukon Jack Punch

I am personally not a connoisseur of alcoholic beverages but I like to keep my guests happy so I make this at their request. It literally takes two minutes to prep then the freezer does the rest of the work. It is nice to serve at parties, since it has to be made two to three days in advance it is out of the way and one less thing that the hostess has to worry about making the day of the party. I have had this particular batch in my freezer for a few months and kept forgetting to blog about it. Will someone please come drink up the rest of it so I can have my freezer back. :)


Anyone that my mom or I has ever served this to has loved it, men and woman alike. You may know this already or you may not even care but oh well I will say it anyway. This is my warning I have heard several reports of people feeling fine then all of a sudden, sneaking right up on them, the buzz kicks in. Please act like the responsible adults you are and be safe and please, I beg of you, please do not drink and drive.

Ingredients

1 bottle (750 ML) Yukon Jack whisky
2 large (46 oz ) cans pineapple juice
2-3 two-liters Sprite or 7-up, chilled

Directions
In a large bowl mix together the entire bottle of Yukon Jack and both cans of pineapple juice. Mix well and place in freezer. Stir every 12 hours or so to keep the liquids mixed well. Mixture is ready to serve when it is frozen slushy, it usually takes 2 to 3 days to achieve this. Store mixture in freezer to keep it's slushy consistency.

When ready to serve, fill a glass 1/3 to 1/2 of the way full with slush mixture and top off of with Sprite or 7-up. Garnish with skewer of fresh fruit (pineapple and cherries are good) if desired.

LOL. I took your warning on responsible drinking very seriously so served this punch at a family reunion where everyone was staying over.

Have to say it went down a treat.
