Pete’s Dragon Punch (and Preview!) #PetesDragon

Spread the love

I clearly remember the awe and joy I experienced as a child watching Pete’s Dragon.  It quickly became one of my favorite childhood classics and inspired my life-long love of dragons (how I wish I could have had one as a pet!)  In fact, I think I’ve seen every mainstream dragon-inspired movie where these magical, mystical creatures take center stage.  Pete’s Dragon still remains my favorite, though as it initiated my fascination with these majestic, mythical creatures.

No surprise, that I’m excited to see the Disney remake of PETE’S DRAGON (in movie theaters August 12.)  The movie is certainly a deviation from the original, first and foremost featuring a CGI dragon rather than a cartoon one, but even so, my heart did a flip-flop of joy when I saw the preview:

Naturally, you know we have to do something to celebrate which is why we are featuring a Pete’s Dragon-inspired drink, perfect for a family movie night viewing of the original film while you are prepping for Disney’s new PETE’S DRAGON to appear this August.  This is a fun and fruity punch that will keep you cool this summer and will quickly become a family favorite. Enjoy!
