Spritely Ghost Punch

It bubbles and fumes like a witch's brew, but it's tastier than a fresh shot of sunshine.

  • Servings : 20


  • 1 large can frozen orange juice
  • One 46 oz. can pineapple juice
  • Three 32 oz. bottles ginger ale
  • Dry ice (available in supermarkets)
  • Cauldron
  • Chilled metal bowl (smaller than cauldron)*
  • Adults only: 16 oz. rum, vodka OR tequila


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.

How do you open it in a new tab. The only thing I get when I right click on the Recipe Title is: Save Background As..., Set as Background, Copy Background, Select All, Create Shortcut, Add to Favorites..., View Source, Encoding ,Print..., Print Preview..., Refresh, Export to Microsoft Excel, Google Sidewiki..., Google Search, Page Info, Cached Snapshot of Page, Similar Pages, Background Links, Properties.How do you get this ( New Tab ) to open the new tab. Thank-you, Jean.

What I do to avoid this problem is to right click on each recipe title, and open it in a new tab. Then you can print it out from there and not lose your place on the main recipe page. Hope this helps :)

I agree with the last comment. I love the recipes but it is a real pain to look at them without having to start over each time.

The layout is okay but if you want to copy a recipe you enter the page and print it - when you get out of the system it takes you back to page one - big hassle - have to start all over.example if your on page 13 you will be taking back to page one and then you have to arrow back to page 13. Should go back one page not all of them. Hope that you can change it. Thank You
