Minty Festival Punch from Nancy Drew Message in a Haunted Mansion

Do you love the Nancy Drew PC games? I have been playing them since 2008 and have beat almost all of them!

Nancy Drew Games has been serving up great food puzzles and food locations for over 20 years. They love it when fans play their games, then try their hand at making their own food dishes inspired by the games and the foods that detective Nancy Drew loves!

This summer I am going to try and post a new recipe from each of the Nancy Drew PC Games EVERYDAY! Today I went with Message in a Haunted Mansion with their Minty Festival Punch. In the game, there is a book of Famous Non-Alcoholic Drinks and How to Make Them. And this one seemed great for summer!

To make the Minty Festival Punch, you combine 9 cups of water, 18 ounces of cranberry juice, 15 cut oranges, 14 ounces of lime juice, 6 tablespoons of sugar and 9 sprigs of mint in a large pot and heat until warm. You can serve it warm or let it cool down with ice and serve cold.

I hope you can join me and enter the contest!
