Peppermint Eggnog Punch

Good Lord but I don't remember how to do this!  I can't believe that it was 2015 when I last posted.  Buying the shop kind of blew the world as I knew it apart.  Things are going well but my free time, what there is of it, is always filled so don't get to thinking I will be posting here regularly as I don't doing so.  I am making Floss Tube videos if anyone that followed this blog in the past reads this and is interested.  Just search YouTube for Reflections Framing & Stitching and it should come up. In fact that is why I am posting today.  I mentioned my Peppermint Eggnog Punch in my last video and some folks were interested in the recipe. I thought this would be an easy place for people to find it.

So without further ado, here ya go and a Merry Christmas to you all!

Peppermint Eggnog Punch

1 qt. peppermint ice cream (with the candy cane bits in it)
1 qt eggnog
4 (12 fluid oz) cans or bottles of ginger ale (I use 7-up sometimes)...chilled
1 cup rum (optional)
24 small peppermint candy canes for garnish

Set aside 2 or 3 round scoops of ice cream in the freezer for garnish.  Stir remaining ice cream until softened.  Gradually stir in eggnog and rum.  Transfer to a punch bowl, and stir in ginger ale.  Hang candy canes around the edge of the bunch bowl.  Place reserved ice cream scoops on top and serve immediately.
