OK, so the 7UP booklet is one of my favorites. I have tasted every PUNCH recipe in this book AND with every recipe there are some great memories.
The recipe featured on the cover is the 7UP Mint Reception Punch; sugar, water, mint, pineapple juice, orange juice, lemon juice, 7UP and ice. Sound familiar? Big punch bowl and the punch cups. Thinking back, how was it that every party I attended that had a punch bowl, there were enough cups for everyone? I have a big silver punch bowl, but I've never used it for punch, rather I use it as a fancy cooler filled with ice, champagne bottles and bottled water.
I am definitely making the 7UP Fall Punch for Thanksgiving. Apple juice, cinnamon and clove...YUMMY. I think I'll even pull the silver punch bowl out of storage!!!
Of course there is a Summer Punch and a Winter Punch. I'll need to make those at another time.
So, this was published in 1962. I wasn't even born yet. What did party planners around the world do without 7UP punch?
