Christmas Punch

Ingredients: 
1 can frozen orange juice concentrate
1 can frozen lemonade concentrate
1 can frozen pineapple juice concentrate
2 2 liter bottles of 7 Up
Directions: 

Combine juice concentrates and mix with amount of water called for on the cans. Just before serving add 1/3 7 Up to 2/3 juice mix.
