drink size in the beverage description so there are no surprises.
Now, decide on some recipes, with non-alcoholic options for
kids. A kid-friendly punch is perfect for serving in these containers. Combine
64-ounce containers of fruit punch and unsweetened pineapple juice and a two-liter
bottle of ginger ale in a large container. Fill individual fish bowls and add

the sherbet to melt, gently stir the drink, and serve.
Alcohol is included in the ingredient list for adult fish
bowl drinks. For a ½-gallon container, pour ½-cup of Nerds candy into the
bottom and add ice to fill the bowl one-quarter of the way. Combine the
following in a separate container: 16 ounces of pineapple juice, 16 ounces of
7-Up or Sprite, six ounces of sweet and sour mix, five ounces each of vodka and
Malibu rum, and three ounces of blue Curacao. Pour this mixture into the fish
bowl, add several Swedish fish and a few lemon, orange, and lime slices.

Diners will love these drinks at first taste and will order
them each time they return. The beverages can be big moneymakers for any
restaurant, especially those with a fun party atmosphere. Some restaurants are
known for serving these types of drinks and they become the places that large
groups go to spend their cash.
