Eerie Witch's Brew
Recipe type: Punches
Serves: 1
  • 4 Cups cranberry juice cocktail
  • 1 Cup chopped candied ginger (1 jar)
  • 3 medium oranges
  • 1 can (12-oz) thawed frozen apple juice concentrate
  • 1 can (6-oz) thawed frozen limeade concentrate
  • 2 Cups seedless grapes
  • water
  • 2 bottles (32 ounces each) ginger ale
  • 1 lb dry ice (up to 2 lbs)
  1. A smoking cauldron of punch made with grapes and orange peel masquerading as eyeballs and worms.
  2. A SERIOUS CAUTION: never touch dry ice; use tongs to handle.
  3. In a 1 to 2 quart pan bring 1 cup of cranberry juice and candied ginger to a boil over high heat.
  4. Boil uncovered about 2 minutes set aside.
  5. With a vegetable peeler pare the peel (colored part only) from oranges; cut peel into thin 2-inch-long worms; or use an Oriental shredder to make long shreds.
  6. Add orange peel to cranberry mixture.
  7. Cover and chill at least 4 hours or as long as overnight.
  8. Juice oranges; put juice in a 6 to 8 quart pan or heavy bowl.
  9. Stir in cranberry-ginger mixture; the 3 cups cranberry juice apple concentrate; limeade; grapes and water.
  10. If made ahead, cover and chill up to 2 hours.
  11. Add ginger ale and about a 1 pound piece of dry ice (DO NOT put small pieces in punch or cups); ice should smolder at least 30 minutes.
  12. Ladle into cups.
  13. Add any remaining ice when bubbling ceases.
  14. We strongly suggest an adult ladle this brew for children and that they do not have access to do it themselves. Consumption of dry ice could cause harm.
Makes 5 quarts; allow about 1-1/2 cups for a serving.
