I live in a house where Evelyn and I are outnumbered. Boys rule in the Sosa home and it’s ever more apparent when it comes to talk of sports; basketball being a favorite between my son and step-son, Collin and Aiden. Never one to pass up a good theme (can we all just agree that I’m theme-crazy at this point?), for the upcoming madness of basketball finals, I created a colorful punch featuring fruity Skittles and lemon-lime pop that my kids slurped down in a frenzy.
The brainstorm for this punch all started when I discovered the palate of rainbow candy Skittles in Sam’s Club in a giant 54 ounce bag. Am I the only one who gets sucked into the Sam’s Club snack aisle vortex only to come out $100 poorer? Am I also the only one who ends up ripping open a bag of said Skittles to appease a very vocal, very angry toddler before we actually make it to the checkout line? It’s only madness, if you don’t have Skittles.
This Taste the Rainbow Skittles Punch recipe is simple, tasty, and fun to look at! It’s also easily customized to your team’s favorite colors if you’d prefer to show your team pride. I just went with a classic Skittles rainbow, singing the chant I learned from one of Evelyn’s TV shows all the while. Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, don’t forget there’s purple too.
To create this recipe for your Tourney events, you’ll start by pouring some fruit punch into an ice tray. Then you’ll add Skittles, separating them by color. Freeze then until the cubes are solid.
Once your cubes are frozen through, pop them out and place them in a big bowl or individual cups. Add some lemon-lime pop and enjoy!
This is such a fun punch to make for any party, but I especially love how easy it is to make it personal to your team or event. Skittles offers literally a rainbow of colors to choose from to make your beverage truly shine.
