After we devoured over 80 tastes of conch last week, Maralyn and I are ready for a light holiday drink. We were Conch Festival judges in the beautiful Turks & Caicos islands. We cannot wait to return. A special treat were the conch specialties and rum punches at the Conch Shack in Provo.  In the meantime, we plan to lighten up with this holiday refresher. I  found it in the latest “Health Magazine.”
