For some reason we're getting a lot of holiday party invites this season. I'm not complaining, but it made me think of the holiday parties of my childhood. I remember my parents throwing parties in the '70s--they ran a ceramics studio in our basement and had quite a lot of people over.

Anyway, they made this punch. The punch consisted of 7-Up, lime sherbet, and gin. I can remember how it tasted (yes, I was allowed to drink small quantities of it) and I think it would be fun to make again. I don't remember the proportions, though. I guess I could just fake it, or I could be nice and try it first. The problem with that is then I got all this punch to drink, and as you can imagine, it wouldn't keep well. Actually, now that I think of it, do any punches keep well? I alsways think of punch as something you put together the night you drink it, and then you throw it out. Especially with the sherbet, it wouldn't work out if it got flat and sort of stale.

So, punch?
