Spritely Ghost Punch
It bubbles and fumes like a witch's brew, but it's tastier than a fresh shot of sunshine.
Vaporize your guests with this ghost-like punch but make sure to follow all our precautions throughout the recipe.
Warning: Touching dry ice to bare skin can cause severe burning; plus, make sure you never swallow any!
step 1Chill a metal bowl (a size that fits inside the cauldron with space between the edges).
step 2Mix orange juice, pineapple juice, and ginger ale together and keep chilled.
step 3Wearing gloves, use an ice pick to break up the dry ice.
step 4Place the chilled bowl in the cauldron. Place a few pieces of dry ice inside the cauldron on the outside of the bowl (never inside the bowl or juice).
step 5Cover the ice with water, pushing the ice under with a long wooden spoon.
step 6Fill the bowl with the juice mixture. Stir the dry ice and water around the outside of the bowl to incite smoke to rise. Add more dry ice if necessary.
step 7Have an adult use a ladle to serve in Gothic-style mugs or glasses.
For an adult version:
Rum, vodka, or tequila all nicely combine with the fruitiness of the punch. Sixteen ounces of liquor would be plenty; make it stronger or weaker according to your preference.
*Dry ice can cause glass to break, so make sure you use a bowl made of metal. It must be smaller than the cauldron so the dry ice can swirl around it.
Any drink with dry ice should be served only by a responsible adult. Avoid touching the ice with any part of the body. Severe burning can result. And, make sure no dry ice gets inside the punch. A tell-tale sign will be unusual bubbling. If so, DO NOT DRINK.
