Dads' Gather Around Christmas Punch

Rated as 4.5 out of 5 Stars

"This is a great crowd pleaser punch. 'Retro' to youngsters but a staple at every Christmas party in my family since the early '60's. The 'Dad's' gather around the punch bowl and 'taste-test' the first batch before anyone else is allowed to partake."

This punch is utterly amazing-- not too sweet, but not too boozy either. Even tastes better the next day, which is why it has come to be known as "breakfast punch" 'round these parts.

I used this recipe to take to the office Christmas party. It was a hit! It is easy to make and taste's delicious. Use an expensive Vodka and you'll never know what hit you!

Everyone at our gathering loved this punch, I used gingerale instead of the lemon lime soda, and I made the ice out of some of the pineapple juice. The punch was gone in an hour

This is a great "retro" punch. I used pink grapefruit since It was for a girls night and it was a hit. I did add a bit more vodka out, it can be dangerous! ;)
