How about a nice Hawaiian Punch?

  I've been pokin' around trying to find some yummy but easy to make cocktails for a Luau party.  Drink recipes sure are not  hard to find these days.    I've found quite a few good choices for food, too - Kalua Pig,  Waikiki Meatballs.

But leave it to the folks at Kraft to have a great collection of easy to make and serve recipes.  I think this is what we'll try to make for dinner Saturday night.  It looks really good.

or these quesadillas look really easy to  make and  not very expensive for the ingredients either.  That's important to me when I am trying to fix enough for a crowd. 

 This recipe was also found at

I think this Mai Tai recipe looks pretty good.  
We already have a lot of different kinds of rums, plus stuff for piña colada and all types of fruity daiquiris. Plus, I've already got all the liquor we'll need for these mai tais, we'll just have to get the fruit juices.     And I do  have paper umbrellas!

1/2 oz Amaretto (Almond liqueur)
1 oz Orange Juice

Shake well and pour over ice. Garnish with a Cherry and Orange slice if available. Don’t forget the paper umbrella!
