Does anyone make/serve punch any more?

I have my mom's punch bowl, the one she used in the '60s for just about every party we had. It may in fact have been a wedding present! It has the plastic hooks that you place along the edge of the bowl which held the matching cups.

She used to make a delicious punch, I wish I had the recipe. I don't think it was one of those sherbet ones but it did have ginger ale and probably some kind of fruit juice, maybe pineapple, and rose wine. Not just any rose wine, It was a brand I can't remember but it didn't come in a glass bottle (yeah, I know, el cheapo.) It was some kind of ceramic, short/squat, maybe jug like bottle but no handle, painted either brown or blue. Wish I could remember it. I'm sure it was cheap but it made good punch!

Now I have this beautiful punch set with lots of memories but I never have big parties and it sits alone up on a shelf in the cabinet of never-used-anymore kitchen items (like her '60s fondue pot.)
