#tbt Laissez les bon temps rouler {Purple, Green, and Gold Punch}

I always LOVE to share these punch recipes during the Mardi Gras festivities.

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!!!

4- 6 oz. can frozen lemonade concentrate, thawed
2- (6 oz.) cans frozen limeade concentrate, thawed
1- 2L lemon-lime soda
4 c. water

12 drops green food coloring
2- 2 liter bottles ginger ale
