Cocktails Anyone???


Today's Halloween project is my Witch's Walk drink menu. Since the party starts at midnight, well, the pricing was just for effect! Anyway, I thought I'd share some party drink recipes for you guys to use at YOUR Halloween party!!!

Vamp's Blood (NON-alcoholic): 6 oz. package of any red Jell-0 gelatin mix added to 2 cups of boiling water in a mixing bowl. Stir until gelatin is completely dissolved. Add 4 cups of ice cold water, stir and place in fridge until almost completely set up. Break gelatin up into pieces with a wire whisk and add to drink mix below before serving.

Vamp's Blood part two: In a LARGE punch bowl combine 48 oz. cranberry cocktail, 1 liter of ginger ale, 1/2 cup lime juice. Chill and serve 3/1 with gelatin mix above. Serves MANY!

Bat Juice: In a large punch bowl combine your favorite clear citrus soda (7up, Sprite, Fresca, etc.) with lime sherbet. Be sure to stir mixture until the sherbet is blended with the soda and drink is slightly "slimy". Chill before serving and enjoy. Serves MANY!

Were Whisky (alcoholic): 2 oz. Jack Daniels Tennessee Whisky combined with 10 oz. Coca Cola. Serve over ice. Serves one.

Witch's Brew (alcoholic): 6 oz. package of lime gelatin added to 2 cups of boiling water. Stir until gelatin is dissolved. Add 3 cups of pineapple juice and set aside.
In a large cauldron (big enough to place a punch bowl inside), place chunks of dry ice in the bottom with 2 cups of water to make the dry ice "steam". Be sure to wear gloves because dry ice will burn the skin and keep away from kids and pets. In a punch bowl, add the gelatin/pineapple mixture along with 1 liter of your favorite clear citrus soda or ginger ale and 2 cups of vodka. Stir to blend and CAREFULLY place the punch bowl on top of the dry ice mixture being careful not to spill the punch onto the dry ice. The "steam" is just for effect and should not be mixed with the punch. Serves MANY!
*Note: The dry ice can be purchased in a block and broken into chunks with an ice pick. Again, be sure to wear gloves and keep away from children and pets.

Hope you all enjoy these drinks and be sure to check out my Crazy Halloween Challenge HERE. Also, check out the give-away that's ending in a few days HERE. There's still time to win the Halloween goodies!!!
