"We didn't like this with the citrus punch, rather with tropicana tropical punch. It changes the color just slightly since the tropical punch is a red base and the citrus is an orange base...but it tasted a lot better."

"This recipe was very fun for St. Patrick's Day. I used regular old Sunny D because the jug says it is "citrus punch." I left out the sugar, and I think without the lime juice that would have been fine, but I did use a lot of fresh lime juice and think the sugar would have balanced the sour. I used Great Value fat free lime sherbert, Twist Up (cheaper than 7Up or Sprite!) and Great Value limeade. I also forgot the food coloring and was afraid the orange Sunny D would mix with the green to make brown, but instead it stayed a pleasant, cheerful bright green. I will definitely make this again because I can't stand ginger ale punches!"

"This looks good. Tampico makes a Citrus Punch that is a blend of Orange, Tangerine, and Lemon. Sunny D is another possibility with their Orange Fused Peach Punch. Walmart also carries a line of citrus punchs"

"I would like to make this recipe but what type of "citrus punch" am I looking for? Frozen, in dairy section, brand? What works best? Thanks!"
