KNB: Punch Fountain and a Punch recipe

I was looking for a punch bowl at amazon.com, and I don't know how I came across this punch fountain. I read the reviews and decided to try it. My kids (and adult visitors as well) have had fun getting punch from it! I'd say for the price, it was worth it!

The recipe that follows I got from one who purchased it, was satisfied, and she shared the recipe of the punch she makes. She emphasized to pour the ginger ale soda (or any carbonated drink) very slowly or else, the bubbles might clog the pathway.


Mix together ahead of time, chill then pour into the bowl --
4 cups cranberry cocktail juice
4 cups pineapple juice
1 cup white sugar
1 tsp almond extract

Add s-l-o-w-l-y just after you set up the fountain and poured the mixture above --
1 liter (4 cups) ginger ale soda

Did the kids enjoy the fountain and the punch? You bet they did!


  1. Oh that looks like so much fun! Your kids are so lucky to have a fun mom like you :)

  2. Grabe! I came to your site from another blogger (forgot na kung sino) and I'm definitely glad that I did! My goodness Manang! Ang sarap kainin ang blog mo dear! LOL! It made me hungry as in. I'm planning to use the Chicken and Pork BBQ recipe, looks really yummy talaga. :)

    I'm also looking for some link or button exchanges for my blogroll as well, care for one?

  6. This is really a cute punch bowl! I think I saw something similar@ Big Lots here in Missouri. I think I'll run and get it tommorrow before they are all gone!You have some of the neatest ideas for entertaining. I admire your passion for fun and food.

  7. HI Anonymous,
    Thanks! Yeah, this punch bowl is one of my kids' fave "toys" related to food. Another of their faves is the icy treat maker that they want to use it even if it is winter!
