WHITE CHRISTMAS PUNCH
1 & 1/3 Cups Sugar
2/3 cup water
1 cup evaporated milk
2 teaspoons almond extract
1/2-gallon carton vanilla ice cream, softened
1 (2-liter) bottle lemon-lime carbonated beverage, chilled
Combine sugar and water in a saucepan; cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until sugar dissolves. Remove from heat. Stir in evaporated milk and almond extract; let cool. Chill until ready to serve.
Combine milk mixture, ice cream and carbonated beverage in a large container just before serving; stir gently to break ice cream into small pieces. Transfer mixture to a punch bowl. Yield: about 3 gallons.
Note: I think the thing that sets this recipe apart from other similar recipes is the almond extract mixture. Give it a try!
