Rev. Tom Philipp's Punch (Nonalcoholic)

This punch has become our favorite for our annual Christmas Eve bash.  Most of the other punches I've tried are too sweet.  This recipe was given to me by the Rev. Thomas Philipp, pastor of the Old South Haven Church.  He also serves it at his annual party for the officers of the church.


  • 4 cans of frozen lemonade concentrate
  • 8 cups cranberry-juice cocktail
  • 1 qt chilled ginger ale
  • 1 pt lemon sherbet
Just before serving: reconstitute lemonade. Pour into punch bowl.  Add cranberry juice, ginger ale and mix well.  Float sherbet on top.

This recipe makes two large punch bowls.  For most parties, especially where an alcoholic punch is being served, one-half recipe is usually enough.
