One of the popular drinks to make for receptions, socials, parties and other mixers is the celebrated fruit punch with Sprite. Although special events are when you'll likely make the drink, you don't have to wait for a certain occasion. You can whip up a batch of the good stuff anytime and drink yourself happy. Make enough for one person or enough for an entire party.
Pour equal amounts of fruit punch and Sprite into a punch bowl or pitcher. By adding equal parts you will be able to balance the fizzy so that your punch will have enough "punch."
Use a mixing spoon to stir the punch and Sprite together in the bowl or pitcher.
Taste the fruit punch to ensure that the taste matches your desire. If you prefer a little more "kick" to the punch, add more Sprite. Add the extra Sprite a little bit at a time to avoid putting in too much. Remember, you can always add more, but you can't subtract if you pour in too much.
If you need to taste the punch again, use a clean spoon or wash the one you previously used to avoid spreading germs.
Add some of your favorite ice cream to the punch to make it creamier. One pint of ice cream is sufficient for four liters of liquid, so if you used a two-liter bottle of punch and a two-liter bottle of Sprite, you only need one pint of ice cream. Great flavors to use with your punch are sherbet flavors and vanilla. Although you can certainly use whatever flavor ice cream you like, you may not want to use chocolate; otherwise, you might be the only person drinking the punch!
