Our family's famous Grandma's Punch recipe!

Remember how I said a good punch drink isn't complete without sherbet?  Well I'm finally sharing the recipe that has influenced every punch I've ever made!

Our annual Christmas party at my Grandma's house is always a good time.  My mom's immediate side of the family is huge--there are about 50+ people this year--so there's always a lot of eating, presents & catching up to do with everyone.

My grandma always has our gathering apace decorated for Christmas with our stockings & even a separate tree for the occasion.  This year, we are actually having the party on New Year's Eve, but it will still be Christmas at Grandma's house!

Over the years, our family has grown in numbers & traditions, but this punch always makes an appearance.  We have been making this stuff for so long I'm not even sure who came up with the recipe.  It could have been a relative's original creation or it may have come from a cookbook.  It's difficult to tell because the drink was concocted in a time before Pinterest!  Can you even imagine such a time?!

Grandma's Punch has simple ingredients & is super fast to make.  At our parties, someone usually brings the ingredients & it is put together in just a few minutes on site.  There's no need to prepare ahead of time.  The ice & sherbet chill the drink down quickly so the ingredients don't even need to be refrigerated ahead of time.  By the time the sherbet gets to the party, it's usually melted enough to not require any special tricks to get it out of the container.

I put the ingredients down as 'parts' because everyone's punch bowl is different.  I used a super small punch bowl I bought at the ReStore & ended up doubling it when I put it in another container so 'parts' gives you a general idea of how much of each ingredient to use.

- Place ice in the bottom of a punch bowl. I usually use a lot of ice because my ingredients are not chilled beforehand.

I like a lot (8-10 scoops), but again it just depends on your taste!
