To create a spooky witches brew Halloween dry ice punch, follow this easy-to-follow recipe and use dry ice to add an additional eerie special effect.
1 quart lime sherbert
1 2-Liter lemon lime soda
Perpared cherry drink mix or cranberry juice
Other Necessary Items:
Dry Ice (For the Continental Carbonic location nearest you click here)
1 rubber glove
1 large cauldron (found at any local craft or party supply store)
1 smaller, plastic bowl that will fit inside the large cauldron. Our recommendation is to have approximately 1 inch space between the bowls.
1 large spoon
To create frozen hand:
Rinse the outside of one rubber glove. Turn the glove inside out and carefully fill with your choice of beverage; prepared cherry drink mix or cranberry juice. Tie the top of the glove securely with kitchen twine or string. Either place in a cooler full of dry ice until frozen or place in the freezer for several hours until completely frozen.
To create witches brew:
Place the smaller bowl inside the large cauldron. Drop spoonfuls of sherbert into the smaller bowl until all of the sherbert has been transferred out of the original container. Pour the lemon-lime soda over the sherbert and stir.
Using tongs and cotton gloves, carefully place chunks of dry ice in the large cauldron on the outside of the smaller bowl.
Prior to serving, carefully cut the rubber glove away from the frozen hand. Place the frozen hand in the witches brew. In addition, add warm or hot water to the dry ice in the cauldron to increase the fog effect for a spooky Halloween punch. As the water cools, add more hot water to maintain the fog effect. As a rule of thumb, one pound of dry ice will create 2-3 minutes of fog effect when placed in warm water. The hotter the water, the more fog, but the quicker dissipation of the dry ice.
Be sure to stir the witches brew right before serving as the sherbert will rise to the top.
Keep children and pets away from dry ice.
DO NOT ingest dry ice.
Always handle dry ice with care using tongs and cotton gloves. Never touch dry ice without protection.
