Let the Good Tomes Roll {Mardi Gras: Punch}

FYI.... This original post from February of 2012 is by far one of my most popular and viewed posts since the inception of this lifestyle blog. I love to share this post every Mardi Gras season for those of you wanting to try these spirited libations. 

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
