Juice punch is an easy-to-make and popular drink for wedding receptions, birthday parties, and just about any other gathering. Adding a carbonated beverage, such as 7-Up, adds extra zing to otherwise bland punch. You can pair 7-Up with orange juice, pineapple juice, cranberry juice or just about any other juice mixture. You may also add sherbet to the punch for extra flavor.

Fruit juice and 7-Up create a tasty and easy punch.

Step 1

Chill the two-liter bottles of 7-Up and two gallons of juice in the refrigerator overnight, or buy the 7-Up and juice from a store's refrigerated section so they are already chilled.

Step 2

Place a clean punch bowl on the serving table. Pour in one gallon of juice. Add half of a liter bottle of 7-Up.

Step 3

Mix the juice and 7-Up with a ladle and taste the mixture. Add more juice or 7-Up as needed.

Step 4

Scoop small balls of sherbet into the punch a few minutes before serving, if desired. The sherbet adds extra flavor and makes the punch colder.

Step 5

Place leftover 7-Up and juice back in the refrigerator and make more punch as required.
