We are getting excited for St. Patrick’s Day. I have been pulling out some of my favorite recipes and getting together some great craft ideas together. The kids and I usually get together with some of our family on St. Patrick’s Day. We eat some yummy St. Patrick’s Day food and we have a few drinks together. The kids are often left out of that last part because, well, they are kids and they don’t get to drink. This year, the kids will be indulging in this non alcoholic St. Patrick’s Day punch. It is perfect for kids and it is a perfect St. Patrick’s Day punch for a party.
The ingredients are simple to throw together for this punch. It can be made ahead of time or made right when you are ready to drink it.

Making simple syrup could not be easier. In a saucepan, boil sugar and water over medium-high heat until the sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat and let cool completely before using.
