Here's a nifty old recipe for homemade holiday punch. Make it with or without alcohol.
Old recipe from 1964 Sprite advertising
1/4 tsp. ground allspice
1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
1 cup fresh lemon juice
12 bottles of Sprite (bottles held about 8 oz. back in the day, so "12 bottles" would equal about one and a half 2-liter bottles' worth of Sprite)
food coloring, if desired
Combine all ingredients except Sprite. Add food coloring, if desired. Chill. Add cold Sprite just before serving. Makes 38 4-oz. servings.
If desired, add 1 part blended whiskey to 5 parts punch. Also good with brandy or rum.
Nice girls don't hang around the punchbowl making eyes at strange men. Just saying.
