HELEN'S ANSWER: Punch is a great drink and most of us still have a punch bowl that we inherited from our mother or grandmother. It is an excellent way to serve drinks. Fruit punch looks beautiful in a glass punch bowl. There are many recipes for punch and lots of current day recipes, including some from Martha Stewart.

My two favorite punches which would be wonderful for today's parties include a delicious coffee ice cream punch from a sister-in-law and my mother's Kaiser's ice cream sherbet punch with ginger ale (and sometimes Champagne and Southern Comfort.) Thinking about these recipes makes me want to have a party!

GUEST'S ANSWER: “Food Dude” Dave Cathey, The Oklahoman's food editor: Punch is perfectly acceptable, but if you're interested in doing something less traditional have a mocktails bar.
