Barbara's Wedding Punch

1 - 12 oz. frozen can lemonade (no water)
1 - 12 oz. frozen can orange juice (no water)
3 cups sugar
20 cups water
2 Tb. vanilla
2 Tb. almond extract

Mix 4 cups water and 3 cups sugar. Then, add the rest of the ingredients. *Freeze. Stir once or twice. Add gingerale and lemon lime 7-Up (one of each).

*Recipe Note: When it says to freeze, freeze it flat in several gallon Ziploc bags. (This makes a lot!) When it is time to serve it, use a few of the frozen Ziploc bag contents at a time. Use an icepick to break up the contents to make it chunky. This way it will make the punch into a slushy consistency when you pour in the gingerale and 7-Up.

Make a lot of this punch because people go back many times for refills. It is refreshing and addictive. Leftover frozen base is great to have on hand in your freezer, too.
