OK, I'm embarassed - what does "chrissy" mean - I probably should know, but I don't.

EDITED: to say - from your other post I take it you mean Christmas - I changed your titles to reflect same.

I started a thread about mulled wine (punch) a couple of Christmases ago. I'll go and find it for you. Mind you, it's for a British style Christmas - ie COLD.... a warm punch may be totally weird in the heat of an Aussie summer Christmas season!

Here's a non-alcoholic punch that I used to make catering a lot - in fact, we're having it tonight at our own party for those who prefer...

Faux Champagne

~34 oz. bottle of each (both chilled): carbonated water and ginger ale
24 oz. unsweetened white grape juice, chilled

Makes about 20 4-oz. servings.

It's very tasty!

Here's 3 of my favorites:

Rum Punch - 3 quarts

2 - 6 oz cans of frozen limeade, thawed and undiluted
2 cups light rum
1 ice ring - I make it out of lemonade w/ fruit
3 - 750 bottles of Cold Duck
Float fruit in the bowl

Combine limeade and rum. Add ice ring. Add Cold Duck.

*******

Pat's Punch

1 can Hawaiian Punch Very Berry
6 oz can oj - in freezer section, thawed
6 oz can limeage - in freezer section, thawed
1 qt club soda
2-3 c rum (opt)

*******

Champagne Sipper

1 - 750 ml bottle dry white wine, chilled
1/2 cup orange liqueur, chilled
1/4 cup grenadine
2 - 750 ml dry pink champagne, chilled
1- 28 ounce bottle carbonated water, chilled
Orange slices

In a punch bowl combine wine, liqueur and grenadine. Carefully pour champagne and carbonated water down side of bowl, stirring gently with an up and down motion. Garnish with orange, if desired.

Oh Great guys, this is all so good, they all sound so yummy, I want to try them all at some stage. Hopefully before Chrissy, so I know whats popular, Even the non-alcholic ones sound YUMMY. My young son will love some of these, he will probably want to try mine and his older brothers(I dont blame him either), But unfortuneatly, he"s not old enough, Ill just have to make sure his is EXTRA SPECIAL, wont I. Thanks heaps, once again,its all too good.
