Every year the living room will get a thorough makeover. The settee and furniture would be set aside, making room for large carpets and saprah linens. There will be at least 40 guests expected in, but usually it can even go more than hundred! There will be a ‘party’ called Marhaban, usually done during the month of Eid whereby the local neighbourhood gather in each house by schedule for prayers and food. It was also the time, the only time, when my mom would take out the fruit punch bowl set for use.

The fruit punch bowls remain my mom’s exquisite treasure. The cups are made of crystal with intricate embossed design and a cute ladle with long handle. When I saw Heidi’s post , it evoked beautiful childhood memories of me running along the vast emptied living room and Mom preparing food and freshly squeezed fruit juices for the punch. I told her about this last week, of how we never really have used the fruit punch bowls except for Marhaban. That was when the idea striked, and I just had to make some concoction but to be enjoyed in glasses instead, with spoon!

Combining three of my favourite ingredients, pomegranate, mint and Nata de Coco, I combined them with the rose flavoured Roof Afza concentrate. No sugar was added as the Roof Afza was already sweet. A small bottle was left in the fridge to be enjoyed later, and I noticed that it tasted much better as the pom flavour has infused thoroughly with the rose and coconut flavours.
