White Christmas Punch

This was a punch we made on Christmas night. You have to like almond flavoring to like this punch. Next time, I think I would cut back a bit on the almond.

1 1/3 cups sugar
2/3 cup water
1 cup evaporated milk
2 teaspoons almond extract
2 (1/2-gallon) cartons vanilla ice cream, softened
4 (2-liter) bottles lemon-lime carbonated beverage, chilled

Combine sugar and water in a saucepan; cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until sugar dissolves. Remove from heat. Stir in evaporated milk and almond extract; let cool.
Chill until ready to serve.

Combine milk mixture, ice cream, and carbonated beverage in a large container just before serving; stir gently to break ice cream into small pieces.
Transfer mixture to a punch bowl.
