Make Creepy Halloween Punch with this Bone Chillin’ Brew Recipe

Bone Chillin' Punch Halloween Recipe

Ever since I bought my new cake stand which doubles as a punch bowl, I’ve been looking for excuses to make punch (or retro layered salad). I fondly remember my mother’s parties when I was young, complete with polyester suits, funny 70s hairstyles and punch for everyone. Looking through all the Nestlé Halloween recipes, I was excited to find this Bone Chillin’ Brew to make for my friends.

First task: making ice hands in the freezer overnight. I delegated this task to my friend, who broke one glove, managed to fill and tie the other three properly but laid them in strange locations in the freezer. One hand didn’t freeze all the way through and another had been squished into a corner, its fingers now in a slightly offensive position. That left us with one good ice hand. My ice tip: buy extra gloves and follow the exact directions in the recipe for making the ice hands if you want them to come out right!

Cutting the gloves off the hands also takes some patience and skill – not to mention sharp scissors. As I cut off the gloves, two of the fingers broke off the good hand, so I began cutting and peeling more slowly and carefully. I ended up with one good, frozen, dismembered hand.

I set to work making the punch. I used part Fruit Punch and part pomegranate juice; I wanted to make it less sweet, pump up the anti-oxidants and make it look more like blood. I also substituted Sparkling Juicy Juice for the soda (it has more fruit servings than soda) and replaced half the soda for pink sparkling wine since this was going to be an adult punch.

The punch tasted great with all my substitutions; it was delicious, fruity and refreshing. And it actually looked even creepier with the one dismembered ice hand floating in the bloody-red liquid!

So don’t be scared to try your hand at this Halloween Punch Recipe…you can be terror-ifically creepy too.

Bone Chillin’ Punch Recipe

Ingredients for 24 eight-ounce servings:

3 cups water
3 clear plastic gloves
3 rubber bands or twist ties
2 bottles (64 fl. oz. each) Punch Flavor NESTLÉ® JUICY JUICE® All Natural 100% Juice, chilled
1 can (12 fl. oz.) frozen lemonade concentrate, slightly thawed
4 cans (12 fl. oz. each) lemon-lime soda, chilled

Directions:

FOR FLOATING HANDS:

POUR water into gloves, adding enough water to fill the gloves loosely but not so full that the fingers will not move. Fasten gloves with rubber bands or twist ties. Line baking sheet with paper towels. Place filled gloves on paper towels. Freeze for 3 hours or until firm.

FOR PUNCH:

COMBINE Juicy Juice and lemonade concentrate in large punch bowl. Gradually stir in soda. Carefully cut gloves off hands with scissors. Float hands in punch.

      Thanks, Marla! My kids go crazy over this one. I even caught them breaking the fingers off the hands (while still in the freezer) so that they could eat them like popsicles!
