Having a party this weekend for Halloween? Need some ideas for beverages? Twist has you covered with spooky drink recipes for kids and adults. And because Halloween is on a Monday this year, we’re going light and delicious!
Witches Brew (non alcoholic):
1 quart lime sherbet
1 bottle of Sprite
1 can of pineapple juice
Metal container for punch like a cauldron
1 large spoon
Gloves to handle the dry ice
Preparation: Place the smaller bowl inside the cauldron. Transfer the sherbet into the smaller bowl. Pour the lemon-lime soda over the sherbet and stir. Using tongs and gloves, carefully place chunks of dry ice in the large cauldron on the outside of the smaller bowl. It is VERY important that the dry ice does not touch the witches brew as it can be very dangerous if consumed – please take pre caution in handling.
Right before serving, add hot water to the dry ice in the cauldron to increase the fog effect for a spooky Halloween punch. As the water cools, add more hot water to maintain the fog effect. One pound of dry ice will create 2-3 minutes of fog effect. The hotter the water, the more fog. Make sure to stir the Witches Brew right before serving because the sherbet will rise to the top.
And now for the adult beverage!
Absinthe (rinse only)
1/2 shot of Cascade Street Distillery Gin
1/2 shot of Cointreau
1/2 shot of Lillet Blanc
Fresh Lemon Juice
