If you are giving your young folks a party, plan on serving a sparkling, tangy fruit punch. Select one of these recipes. Incidentally they're also good ones for bridal showers and wedding receptions or anniversary parties!

Hi, just checked out your blog and it looks fun! Just wanted to thank you for a comment you put on my blog for the post I did last week. The comment is not there now, not sure why, but wanted to let you know I appreciated it. Feel free to delete this, I just didn't know how to get in contact with you and didn't see an email for you on your site. Hope you stay tuned!

It would be really hard to choose between these three. I'm thinking multiple punch bowls. :)
