Get ready for St Paddys Day.
I'm a little disappointed, I knew I had seen several St. Patricks Days Punch recipes in the collection, but when I got them out, they were all the same recipe, posted by Dorothy Dean probably every year. I was able to dig up a few more that are green. So here you go.
Lime Fizz
1 envelope presweetened lime instant soft drink mix
2 quarts gingerale(chilled)
1 (3 oz) pkg of lime flavored gelatin
1 lime, sliced
maraschino cherries
In large pitcher prepare lime soft drink mix according to pkg directions substituting gingerale for water. Empty gelatin onto wax paper. Moisten rims of glasses; dip into dry gelatin to form frosted edge.  Pour lime Fizz over ice; garnish with lime slice and maraschino cherry.
