Although the recipe says pour 28oz of ginger ale, 7up or sprite over all the frozen punch after breaking it up in chunks, I used throw away plastic containers I purchased from the dollar store to freeze the punch in. The containers were about 4 cups each. This way, I am able to use as much of the frozen punch as needed. When the punch bowl gets low, I can add more frozen punch and pour on as much ginger ale, 7up or sprite I need. I use ginger ale or sprite because they have more of a fizz than 7up.
