Mellow Yellow Monday #2

Every Christmas Eve our family makes this punch. Like our fancy dishes? LOL Yep, that's a tupperware bowl and a soup laddle! We do have fancy dishes but this has become tradition.

But the best thing? The colour ... of course! Okay ... it is pretty tasty too. Nice and fizzy, no alcohol thought, it's a family punch.


Last week's first Mellow Yellow Sunday was a success! Thanks to everyone who participated!!

I've updated the badges and code in the sidebar ... please let me know if you have any problems with them. Thanks :)

Oh this looks lovely !

My mother serves a large bowl of home-made mango shake every year in Ramadan and it looks just like this !

Unfortunately, she's never here in Canada in Ramadan and it's hard to get Alfonso mangoes here !

That looks like you're drinking egg yolks. Colorful, but oh the mental images. :0) I'm playing this week, but I discovered there isn't a lot of yellow in my portfolio. I'll have to get busy with the camera.

Kathy said...

You'll have to tell us whats in it. Its a pretty color. Happy MYM!

JoyD said...

When I first looked at it ,, I thought it was a baby food ha ha ha ha....
Lets drink!!!! Cheers....

Drowsey Monkey said...

Egg Yolks? LOL You people are crazy, hahahaha....

Never thought it looked like that but I guess ...

Anyway, I can't remember the exact recipe but (I think) it's one large can of Unsweetened Orange Juice & Unsweetened Pineapple Juice, and one large bottle of Diet Sprite and Diet Ginger Ale. Then add ice cubes. I'll check with Sis later to find out if that's right.

We use diet & unsweetened because several family members have diabetes.

it's really good, especially the second day...or third :)

Michele said...

Looks delightful! I'm not into the alcohol so this sounds really nice... you may have to give out that recipe one of these days! =)

Tina said...

The punch looks lovely and I like that shade of tupperware, it goes great with yellow! This is a fun meme for sure.

VioletSky said...

I have that same Tupperware bowl, but without the punch.

(um, what are those red 'x' marks? and where did my name go? I'm confused.)

VioletSky said...

nevermind. got it.
but I was #5 before, now I feel so far away.

Mama Zen said...

Yum! I love punch!

Drowsey Monkey said...

violet - that's weird, I thought only I as the admin could see the x marks ... Mr Linky has been acting weird lately! At least it's working :)

Lightning and Co. said...

Dianne said...

Daisy said...

Hi Drowsey! Your family punch looks yummy!

storyteller said...

I'd love to give it a try ;--)
I use lemons from my tree out front to make delicious lemonade. I'm participating for the 2nd time today at Happily Retired Gal, my WordPress blog.
Hugs and blessings,

Mr Linky isn't working from my any of my badges/widget thingies

Drowsey Monkey said...

Mister linky only works from this blog ... and it's been off and on throughout the day which has been normal for it lately. I think they're moving servers so it should be up and running okay shortly.
