Foodie Friday--D is for DRACULA

OK, OK, I know DRACULA isn't a food, or even food related, but with Halloween just around the corner, I couldn't resist!!!

HAPPY HALLOWEEN to all, and I hope you are donning a costume and heading off for some adult fun and libations.....Here is a recipe for a RED punch I like to call 

  • 1 750ml bottle of white rum or vodka
  • 1 bottle dry red wine
  • 3/4 cup fresh lime juice
  • 3/4 cup orange liqueur
  • 3/4 cup simple syrup (adjust to your desired sweetness)
  • 2 cups orange juice
  • bag frozen rasperries, pureed
  • orange and lime wheels, maraschino cherries -- for garnish
Pour all ingredients into a punch bowl or other large serving vessel. Mix well.  Add an ice ring, or block. Put a ladle in it and enjoy in moderation.

 Serve your DRACULA'S BLOOD PUNCH in these groovy red mugs:

Thanks for using my hefty restaurant ware cups in the article! I love party drink recipes and this one's a keeper!

Nora, how do you make an ice ring? with a jello mold?

Yup, just use a jello mold, or even a Bundt pan to make an ice ring. If you don't want to dilute your punch, freeze JUICE. My mom always put whatever fruit complimente the punch in the mold, too.
