Mardi Gras is a punch lover’s dream day, and the Mardi Gras Punch does not disappoint. Loaded with alcohol and containing the extra zest that Mardi Gras itself brings to all of our lives, the Mardi Gras Punch helps transform a Fat Tuesday party into – well, into a Fat Tuesday party with a delicious beverage.
Place the ice ring in the punch bowl. Add the grape juice first, followed by the pineapple juice, the sprite, and the vodka in that order. It becomes your choice whether or not to stir as some people prefer to simply let the tastes bleed into each other.
Put slices of oranges and slices of lime gentle on top of the liquid so that they float there.
Vodka: Mardi Gras’ Best Friend
What kind of Mardi Gras Punch would be complete without copious amounts of alcohol? Indeed, for this one holiday the absolute best “Mardi Gras Punch” seems to be just the vodka without the actual punch. But assuming you would like your event to have a drink that is not only full of alcohol but also delicious, the Mardi Gras Punch will not disappoint.
The ice ring and fruit slices keep the drink looking festive, and the grape juice – especially if you choose to get a rich, pure grape juice rather than the cheaper watered down varieties – is an ingredient that you may even want to use with your non-Mardi Gras punches more often, as it will make the entire beverage considerably richer.
The added sparkle of the lemon/lime sodas adds to the party feel, and the pineapple juice gives it the tropical taste that people have come to expect from Mardi Gras themed punches. Overall, the Mardi Gras Punch covers everything that people expect from their Fat Tuesday beverages.
