 Southern Comfort Punch


2 (2 quart) bottles 7-Up, chilled

1 large can frozen lemonade

1 large can frozen orange juice

6 oz. lemon concentrate

1 bottle Southern Comfort Whiskey

ice ring (made with orange juice or lemonade) optional

maraschino cherries

large punch bowl

Mix frozen lemonade, orange juice & lemon concentrate in bottom of a large punch bowl; may need to let it set a couple of minutes to soften.Add in the 7-Up; spike with Southern Comfort to taste.
Garnish with ice ring and maraschino cherries. I normally use half the ingredients to fill one punch bowl. When you add the 7-up, it normally foams quite a bit.

You can spike the punch just a little, and leave the bottle beside the bowl (for a casual party) for those who like a stronger. punch.

Southern bells always seek comfort. I bet every one in your house is happy after some of this comfort. Thanks for such a nice post.

I don't venture out on Black Friday. I went a few times and couldn't believe how ordinary people turned into rude, bullies pushing and shoving. After having items snatched out of my hands by this big man. I decided to shop earlier in the year and skip it. Problem is I forget where I've hidden what I purchased.

I agree that I don't like all the commercials. I have gone out on Black Friday in past years, but now find I prefer shopping online. So much easier and the postman or UPS guy brings stuff to my door. I just don't like crowds nowdays, so it's nice to be able to avoid them.
