Witches Brew Punch
Witches Brew Punch is only 3 ingredients, with the option to add rum for the adults. It’s a kid favorite at our annual Halloween Party!
Although Halloween has since passed, I wanted to get this recipe up because I think it’s a great punch for any occasion – a holiday party, a baby or wedding shower, etc. My favorite punch, Christmas Punch, has a number of ingredients while this one only has 3, and I like it almost as much!
I found this Witches Brew Punch recipe on Pinterest last year and served it at our annual Halloween party. I loved it so much that it made a return this year. I’ve also added some suggestions to make it more festive for Halloween.
This punch couldn’t be simpler. The pineapple juice is poured into a punch bowl and 1 cup of softened sherbet is stirred in to dissolve it. Then, scoops of sherbet are added the orange soda is poured around it. The result is a bright orange bubbly concoction just like a Witches Brew!
Individual or Small Batch Servings of Punch
I LOVE punch. Almost as much as I love dips. Sometimes you may feel like punch but don’t have enough people to warrant a big punch bowl’s worth. For individual servings of punch, I recommend getting orange soda cans and small cans of pineapple juice (usually sold in a pack of 6 small cans). Then just follow the instructions for the big batch punch but mix it in individual cups or glasses.
Halloween Party Ideas
Halloween Ice Hand
Freeze water in a disposable glove, remove the glove (it helps to run the ice hand under cold-not hot-water to get the glove to separate from the ice. Using water that is too warm will cause the ice to crack! You may have to cut the glove off in certain spots).
Float the ice hand in the punch.
I recommend making at least 2 ice hands in case of a cracking incident. A few fingers broke off the first hand I had- which may actually have been appropriate for Halloween.
Halloween Jarred Eyeballs
Stuff canned lychees with dark colored grapes to make eyeballs and add to the punch or to individual cups when serving.
