Cheers! Purple, Green, & Gold Punch.....

The always popular parade punch inspired me to search out and tweak recipes for traditional purple, green, and gold libations.

I found several interesting recipes at
I definitely tweaked each recipe to make it my own. The alcohol of choice for each is VODKA.
I used my newest Carnival must-haves, the large drink dispensers, purchased for $19.98 each at Sam’s. Score!!!

 Green Sweet Punch
4- 6 oz. can frozen lemonade concentrate, thawed
2- (6 oz.) cans frozen limeade concentrate, thawed
1- 2L lemon-lime soda
4 c. water
1.75 L Skyy Vodka
12 drops green food coloring
2- 2 liter bottles ginger ale
1 quart pineapple juice
Ice cubes
Combine all juices, ginger ale, vodka, and water. Add food coloring. Garnish with lime wedges or green grapes.

Purple Passion Punch

1 gallon grape juice
6 cans (12 oz.) grape soda
1 half gallon white grape juice
2- 2L ginger ale
1 (46 oz.) can pineapple juice
4 cups water

Combine juices. Garnish with purple grapes.

Go For the Gold Punch
