Amla Rose Punch

Weather is still cold and rainy but sometimes Sun god show his head to kick start our lazy gloomy days. However i dont bother to make some fresh juices or smoothies to keep ourself cool while the weather was quite chilled though.Actually we dont need any excuse to enjoy fresh drinks or smoothies. Recently one of my trial with amla aka gooseberries is this incredible punch. Look at the picture, and tell me how wonderful this drink looks and trust me for the taste i can say that the mild sourness and the sweetness of gooseberries along the rose flavour of the rose syrup will definitely take you to an another world. Yes seriously this punch tastes fantabulous and they were refreshing as well.

This week is going to be mocktails or non alcholic drinks as i chosed as mocktail delights as theme for this week's blogging marathon. Obviously the next two days of my posts are going to be interesting and different mocktails from me, which can have their important place in your dining table if you are planning to make some mocktails for a lunch or dinner party...Sending this post to Ahlan Ramadan-The Healthy Way.Check out the Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM#40.
