Nostalgia Electrics LPF210 Vintage Collection Lighted Party Fountain Beverage Set
i must say, i read all the reviews i could find over and over before i bought this!! i was having a big "hollywood oscar dress-up style" 18th birthday party for my daughter and 40 other of the greatest teenagers in the country and i had this picture in my mind of elegance--except it was "elegance-on-a-budget"!! i was having trouble finding a punch recipe that was non-alcoholic but not baby shower taste either...so, i kept wondering if it would really be worth it and would it just look like cheap plastic?? i finally decided to "just do it" and ordered at the best rate i could find with amazon. it was here pretty quickly and i ripped into it. i was very excited--all parts seemed to fit properly together and i tested it with water and it worked and looked great! it's not a $500 or $1000 silver or crystal punch bowl but it had a good weight to it and looked just fine next to real crystal platters! and with the following recipe from a friend it was a huge hit with ALL the kids--they just kept coming back and never even touched the sodas i kept offering--until the punch ran out! thanks for a fun party addition!! 4cups cranberry cocktail juice + 4cups pineapple juice + 1cup white sugar + 1 tsp almond extract (mix all that together ahead of time) + 1 liter(4cups) ginger ale soda. multiply the recipe however many times you want but add the ginger ale slow slow slow slow slow!!!! i goofed and went too fast the 1st batch and the fountain wouldn't work till the fizz all settled down-but it recovered in spite of me:)!
