Spooky Sipping

 

Punch

 

A big bowl of punch is the perfect prop for Halloween. There are lots of ways to make your party punch spookie!

 

Slimy green punch.

 

Freeze green punch in a gelatin mold along with plastic bugs and eyeballs. And place a few small glow sticks underneath the punch bowl: when the lights are turned down, the brew will radiate in a mysterious and unearthly fashion.

 

Float zombie hands made from ice.

 

Get a couple of latex gloves from nursing or dietary. Wash them thoroughly with dish soap and turn them inside out. Carefully pour in water. Fasten tightly at the wrist with a rubber band.

 

The shape will turn out best if you hang the gloves, fingers down, from your freezer shelf. Plan to freeze for at least one full day.

 

When it's party time, run warm water over the gloves very briefly--just long enough to loosen the gloves from the ice--and carefully peel them off the frozen hands. The ice fingers break off easily, but that's okay--the disembodied digits just add to the "zombie" effect.

 

Turn your punchbowl into a steamy, smoky witch's cauldron.

 

Nothing makes a party spookier than an ominous witch's brew.

 

Mix up a punch that your residents like using fruit juices. You might want to use chunks of dry ice to the bigger container & plae a smaller bowl inside it that holds the punch. This allows you to create that delightful creeping mist without putting dry ice directly into the punch, which can be dangerous. (Your supermarket's fish counter may carry dry ice; if they don't, they may be able to tell you where you can purchase some.) When you're ready to create some magic, simply pour some hot water over the dry ice. Continue to add hot water and dry ice as needed.

 

Note: Never ingest dry ice! Be very careful when using dry ice. Always keep it out of reach of children and never touch it with bare skin; use tongs or extra-heavy-duty gloves.

 

Potent Potions for Grown-Up Ghouls

 

Make a batch of gelatin shooters in red, green or black cherry flavors. When they are set but not yet firm, place a gummy worm "crawling" out of each one.

 

Float colored liqueurs and mixers in your punch bowl (some will sink to the bottom, but that's even creepier). Try grenadine syrup (to look like blood), crème de menthe or melon liqueur (to look like green slime!), or sour peach or orange schnapps (for pumpkin guts).

 

For an over-the-top centerpiece, rent a champagne fountain from a party supply store. Fill it will a blood-red punch.
