    Anyone have a great punch recipe for serving around 50 or so people for my DD graduation party?

    A family favorite is 1 bottle 7UP, 1 carton OJ, and float 1 square tub of ice cream in the middle! Of course you could scoop the ice cream for presentation, but we like the block. Its fun! (you could always double it)

    We use Ginger ale, Rainbow sherbert, frozen blueberrys, raspberrys and strawberrys - you can add champagne as well if you like -

    If you have the silicone floral cupcake pan - fill it with water and freeze for pretty Ice Cubes!!

    Try the "Perfect Party Punch"... we have people ask for the recipe all the time.

    Recipe yields 12 1-cup servings. Ingredients are as follows:
    6 cups chilled cranberry ****tail
    4 cups Ginger Ale
    1 can (12 oz) frozen orange-pineapple juice concentrate (thawed)
    1 orange

    Directions:
    1. Place cranberry juice ****tail, ginger ale & orange/pineapple concentrate in Family Size Quik-Stir Pitcher.
    2. Using Lemon Zester/Scorer, score orange from top to bottom; cut into slices using Utility Knife. Place slices in pitcher.
    3. Plunge until contents are thoroughly mixed. Serve immediately.

    Since you need a large quantity, I would make a few batches and pour them into the empty ginger ale bottles for refrigeration. Just a suggestion.

    Our favorite that I catered a party with and used at our DD's wedding is 1 canister of Minute Maid Lemonade (do NOT use off brand...it's not the same) and 1 2 liter bottle of Fresca mixed. It's SO GREAT and refreshing. It doesn't give you sugar overload and it's one of the few punches that I've found that men like. Our friends who are caterers have "borrowed" the recipe and use it for lots of events now. It's SO easy and requires no prep time which is an added bonus. Some people add a couple canisters of water to thin it down but we like it without the water.

    The lemon lime fizz is really good and can be made in multiple batches.

    frozen pink lemonade concentrate (could also use regular lemonade)
    pineapple juice
    gingerale or 7up

    OR

    frozen white grape raspberry juice concentrate
    gingerale or 7up

    OR

    pretty much any frozen concentrate with gingerale

    I freeze the 7up in the floral silicone cupcake pan & pop them into the punch. It won't water it down as they melt.
