Cream Soda Punch

I bet you always wanted a recipe for a delicious pink punch! It’s a mix of orange juice, cream soda, and lemonade with a hint of coconut. I use the Bacardi pina colada mix but skip the alcohol. The best part are the cream soda ice cubes – don’t skimp on those.


26 oz/650 mL bottle of cream soda

12 oz/300 mL can frozen pink lemonade concentrate

12 oz/300 mL can frozen orange juice concentrate

8 oz/250 mL can frozen Bacardi pina colada mix (this adds a smooth coconut flavour)

48 oz water

Chill all ingredients. Pour some of the cream soda into an ice cube tray and freeze to make ice cubes. Open each can of frozen concentrate and pour into large bowl. Add 2 cans of water using orange juice can and 2 cans of water using lemonade can. Add 2 cups cream soda. Stir and chill then serve using pink ice cubes. (Cause that’s just fun!)

Laugh every day. Love every minute. Linda

Sugarwater Ranch by Stephanie Berget

Stephanie Berget  Sugar Water Ranch  Book Cover

Bullrider Sean O’Connell’s life is perfect, or it was until his partying lifestyle affects his riding ability. Now he’s ended the season too broke to leave the Northwest for the warm southern rodeos. When a wild night with his buddies gets out of hand, he wakes up naked, staring into the angry eyes of a strange woman. His infallible O’Connell charm gets him nowhere with the dark-haired beauty. It’s obvious she’s not his usual good-time girl, so why can’t he forget her?

Catherine Silvera finds a waterlogged, unconscious cowboy freezing to death in front of her uncle’s Sugarwater Bar. She saves his life—then runs faster than a jackrabbit with a coyote on its tail. Any man who makes his living rodeoing is bad news, especially if he thinks partying is part of the competition. He’s everything she doesn’t want in a man, yet she shake her attraction to the rugged cowboy.

About the Author

Born and raised in Boise, Idaho to city parents, I was a horse lover from the day I first watched My Friend Flicka.

I began writing after I read a rodeo romance in which the romance was good, but the rodeo and horse information was so wrong…. I thought, how hard can it be to write a book? Five years and thousands of hours of study and writing, I know how hard it is. Writing well is just as hard to do well as it is to do anything well.

I write Contemporary Rodeo Romance with a touch of magic. It’s Romance with a Rodeo flair.
