No Halloween party would be complete without a cold, black punch to drink. Here’s an easy and delightfully ghoulish recipe for Black Punch, which is perfect for halloween cocktail parties, costume parties or kids parties. Alcohol can be added for adult only parties.
Makes 1 gallon.
1 (.13 oz. ) envelope unsweetened grape soft drink mix
1 (.13 oz.) envelope unsweetened orange soft drink mix
2 cups white sugar
3 quarts cold water
1 liter ginger ale
Vodka (to taste, if having an adults only Halloween Party)
1 frozen “hand”
“Wormy” ice cubes – ice cubes with gummy worms.
Food grade dry ice
To make a frozen hand, wash a non powdered, non latex, disposable glove, fill with water, seal with a rubber band and freeze until hard. Dip in warm water and peel off glove. Place in bowl at time of event to add to the spookiness factor!
Stir together grape soft drink mix, orange soft drink mix, sugar and water until solids are dissolved. Combine with chilled ginger ale just before serving. Dip the frozen hand briefly in warm water, then peel off the glove. Float the prepared hand in the punch bowl for a ghastly effect.
As you can see this Black Halloween Punch is very easy to do and guests of all ages will enjoy it as much as they will looking at it!
