Wash lemons and oranges and slice into rounds. Put in large pan (big enough to hold 2 plus gallons). Add 2 cups of sugar sprinkling over tops of fruit. Add enough hot water to just cover the top and mash with a potato masher. Do that long enough to just mix the sugar and fruit well and release some of pulp/juice. But don't pulverize. Add water and ice to equal about 2 gallons. Stir well. Add a couple cap-fulls of the powdered lemonade mix. Stir well and taste. Add sugar or more lemonade mix if desired. Serve in glass of ice with some of the lemon/orange pieces.
You can make an ice ring with maraschino cherries and lemon/orange slices to add on top. Looks pretty in a punch bowl this way.
