Fruit punches are a favourite anytime anywhere. I had been to a restaurant recently with a friend & I had ordered a similar drink but that was with Green apples. I loved the flavour of celery & mint in that drink. It was a brilliant drink. So re-created the drink with different fruits.
If you have a brunch party to host, try this drink out, it will be an instant hit. It’s refreshing & will go perfectly with any kind of food. The kids will love it as well. If you want to try adding some Vodka in it as well. :) I will try this with some Vodka soon & let you guys know how it turned out.
