Lemon-Lime Punch

    Use 7-UP or Ginger ale and lemon lime frozen juice mix. Could be strawberry or Raspberry remember the carpet maybe a yard party or just family for indoors. Try your favorite sherbet and NO water, use soda. You could use a champagne like Cook's its giant at Sams and is really only good with fruits or sweets or desserts. Not for savory food. Around $8.00 for a magnum. Not fancy but delicious with desserts.

    Yep JFenrick, that's exactly what it is. You usually find them 8 for $1 or so in with the other powdered drink mixes.

    Where do you get lemon lime soft drink mix? Is it just the Cool-aide stuff?

    Made this for a scout reception - went through 2 batches in 30 minutes. Everyone loved it.
