Tastes like champagne. You can also tint this a pretty light pink.
2 (1 quart) bottles white grape juice
2 (28 ounce) bottles 7-Up soda
1 (16 ounce) bottle club soda

1 (46 ounce) can unsweetened pineapple juice
1 (46 ounce) can apricot nectar
3 (6 ounce) cans frozen lemonade, thawed and undiluted
4 (10 ounce) bottles ginger ale

4 cups strawberries
1/2 cup sugar
3 cups orange juice, chilled
3/4 cup lemon juice, chilled
1 1/2 quarted ginger ale, chilled
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup sliced strawberries, for garnish

Mash 4 cups berries with 1/2 cup sugar. Let stand 1 hour. Force through strainer. Add rest of the ingredients to chilled punch bowl. Garnish w/ berries& serve.

My favorite because it is the easies, least expensive, really pretty, and absolutely everyone loves it!

1 container of sherbert of your choice
2 liter bottles of 7-up, Sprite or any Lemon Lime Soda

Scoop the sherbert into the punch bowl and add the 7-Up. It makes big fluffy bubbles and the punch will be the color of whichever sherbert you use. For instance if you want a pink punch use raspberry sherbert. For light green, use lime sherbert, etc.

Karen, I just wanted to thank you for the great punch recipes. I have used the sherbert one before and it is a big hit, always. The others sound really good. I was just browsing through and I'm sooo glad I came upon your recipes. Marilyn in CO

A pretty addition is to make ice cubes using johnny jump ups or pansies. You can coordinate the colors with the color of your punch. Fill the trays with water, add the individual flowers to each compartment. Allow the flowers to float on top of the water. Freeze and add the cubes to your punch bowl. The flowers float on top-- really pretty with a clear punch.
