Peppermint Float Punch is always a hit with my family and friends at any gathering. I think you will agree it tastes just like drinking a peppermint float. This is the punch that I will always make throughout the holiday seasons. My mother, Dorothy Hagerman, originally made this Peppermint Float Punch recipe for our family when I was a little girl. I still enjoy it today. Thank you Mom!
This is an easy-to-make beverage recipe with only three ingredients. Head to your grocery store and pick out your favorite vanilla ice cream. If you are lucky you might find the elusive Peppermint Ice Cream. It is not always available at the store, except maybe at Christmas. Try it for your next Christmas party. The lovely green coloring is very festive and you will be sharing this recipe with your friends. Even children love this punch.
