Here are four recipes for lightly colored non-alcoholic punches made with club soda or 7-Up.
Light Punch 1
Mix together and freeze: six cups of water, one cup sugar, ninety two ounces of pineapple juice and two 12 ounce cans of both frozen lemonade concentrate and frozen orange juice concentrate. Place the frozen mixture in a very large punch bowl. Pour 7-Up or club soda to create an icy mixture that will turn slushy.
Light Punch 2
In a large punch bowl, pour two cans each of frozen orange juice concentrate and frozen lemonade concentrate. Add eight cups of water, two cups of grenadine syrup, an amount of lemon juice equivalent to three lemons and twelve cups of 7-Up or club soda. Slice and garnish with lemon and orange slices.
Light Punch 3
Chill and add forty six ounces each of both pineapple and orange juice in a large punch bowl. Carefully add eight cups of 7-Up and stir slowly in to avoid losing all the carbonate bubbles. Add four cups of your favorite lightly colored sherbet. Garnish with strawberries.
Light Punch 4
Blend in a large punch bowl, two quarts of white grape juice, eight cups of 7-Up and 4 cups of club soda.
