How To Make Halloween Punch
This drink recipe is quite simple and is loaded with fruity flavors from lemonade, cranberry, and pineapple juice. Grab that punch bowl to get started.
You will want to make sure you have a large enough bowl to work with. This recipe yields about 23 servings that's why it's great for parties.
My bowl was just big enough for all of the ingredients. But not for adding in the fun ice that can make it a spooky drink.
Into the bowl pour in all the ingredients, mix with a spoon. If your bowl is large enough you could make it a spooky drink. Fill food-safe gloves with water and freeze, place into the bowl.
I do suggest placing all the drinks into the fridge to get them cool before making this recipe.
Making It An Adult Cocktail
In order to make it an adult cocktail, you can do it one of two ways. Add the alcohol into the punch bowl or add to each glass. If you add it into the punch bowl then this isn't a non-alcoholic punch.
Since this recipe yields, quite a few servings and I was only serving for my family. I add into my glass a shot of alcohol.
Now for the fun part of it being an adult cocktail is the choice of what to add to it. I have used both rum and vodka, the vodka I did like better.
Like I said when I make this recipe I make it so it's non-alcoholic. That way my kids can enjoy it as well. What doesn't get used from the punch bowl I pour into a large pitcher.
Storing in the refrigerator so the kids can enjoy it for about a week.
If you really wanted to take this kid-friendly drink up a couple of notches. You could make ice cube hands with food-safe gloves.
Freezing plastic spiders or worms into ice cubes would make this even more fun for the kids.
Or even add in some food-grade dry ice for that smokey effect. I have never worked with dry ice before. So you may want to read up on the safest way to handle and use dry ice.
This Halloween punch recipe is great to make for a school party. Since it does make a lot of servings.
