Today is Miscellaneous Mish-Mash Day!  I'm not feeling too cohesive, so you are going to get a few unrelated links and ideas!  I hope you enjoy today's entry.

Christmas Cranberry Punch

4 cups of Cranberry Juice Cocktail
2 cups of Orange Juice
1 - twelve ounce can of Sprite or 7 UP
box of Sherbet or Sorbet

Combine the Cranberry and Orange Juice in a punch bowl.  Pour the soda down the sides of the bowl.  Add box of sherbet or sorbet if desired. 

Yields 16. 

We have made this punch every year in my family since I was a child, and drank it on New Year's Eve.  I think this recipe would be good for either Christmas or New Year's Eve. 

We used to also replace the orange juice with grape juice in my family.  I think either orange or grape would be delicious.  I think I am going to try the punch with orange juice this year.
