AUNT SIS'S CHRISTMAS PUNCH

This is a punch my aunt used to serve for Christmas. It is also good for parties, showers, etc. We love it anytime of the year.

2 pkgs cherry Kool-Aid
2 pkgs strawberry Kool-Aid
1 small can frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed
1 small can frozen lemonade concentrate, thawed
2 large or 3 small bananas, mashed
3 cups sugar
1 tall can pineapple juice
2 bottles (16-oz each) Ginger-Ale or 7-UP
3 cups water

Mash the bananas in a very large bowl. Add the cherry Kool-Aid, strawberry Kool-Aid, orange juice concentrate, and lemonade concentrate; mix together well. Add the pineapple juice, water, and Ginger-Ale or 7-UP. Stir well. Pour into a large plastic container with a lid and freeze.

2 to 3 hours before serving time, remove the punch from the freezer. Put mixture into a large punch bowl. Thaw until mushy. Float green plastic holly on top for decoration, if desired.
