I'm making Sharkleberry Fin Kool-Aid Christmas Punch!

     I'm responsible for making punch for a Christmas party, so I went to store the other night with my default punch recipe (I found it in my church cookbook) to look for the proper flavor of Kool-Aid for the punch. It's a simple punch recipe with all of the basics (pineapple juice and ginger ale) but I like that it uses Kool-Aid to add a unique flavor and color to every batch. I wasn't sure what color to grab for Christmas punch, but when I Sharkleberry Fin was back in production my decision was pretty much made for me. It's a bright pink fruity punch with hints of strawberry, orange, and banana. Some folks have described it as a sherbert flavored Kool-Aid; I think that's a good sign since my mother's Christmas punch uses rainbow sherbert. Anyways, I made the Kool-Aid in advance and will mix everything together in a punch bowl when I'm serving it. So...enjoy these pictures of the Sharkleberry Fin Kool-Aid packet.....

I tried for a Jurassic Park-esque vibe with the Sharkleberry Fin logo dropping down around the shark (kind of like how the "When dinosaurs ruled the earth" banner falls down around the T-Rex at the end of the movie. It didn't work well, so I stuck it in his mouth.
