i would like to introduce my kids to the wonderful world of punch, yummy [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
when i was growing up, every birthday party had homemade punch. in today's world of cola and koolaid, you don't see it except maybe at bridal or wedding showers.
what is your favorite, and how do you make it?

Love this one- it's almost healthy!
1 bottle cranberry juice, 1 bottle pineapple juice, 1 2 litre (I don't use all of it) ginger ale.
I like to mix the juices and keep them in the fridge so I can just add the ginger ale as needed,

Ugh...I see you are dealing with a grape allergy and my best kids punch has grape juice in it! It's 2:1 orange juice:white grape juice and then add 7-Up to taste. I have made it with pineapple juice in place of the grape juice--very good if you drop frozen strawberries in the punch bowl!
I always start out with orange juice--packs a bit of nutrition into the punch--and add whatever I think would go well and is a bit sweeter than orange juice. I also try to stay with light colored juices...saves on carpet cleaning!
(Gotta add...for adults, pineapple and grapefruit juices with vodka is wonderful! In hot weather, serve it really, really cold with a mint leaf on top! So refreshing!)

Mine is super simple:
Raspberry sorbet and 7-up.
I have never made this for my PA child so I am not sure of a safe sorbet. It is so delicious though.

Hawaiian Punch, Pineapple juice, then scoop in some sherbet and pour 7-Up or Gingerale over the sherbet to make it frothy!
Enjoy!
Renee
almost forgot, add orange, lime or lemon slices too!
