Spicy Witches Brew
1 12 oz. can of frozen orange juice
1/4 cup lemon juice
2 quarts apple cider
4 cups water
1 cup white grape juice
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 pkg (13 oz) cherry drink mix
Large Bowl or Large Pumpkin cleaned
Mix the orange juice, lemon juice, apple cider, water, white grape juice, and cinnamon
together in a large bowl until well mixed. Chill for at least an hour in refrigerator before
serving. Make a pitcher of cherry drink and pour into ice trays. When frozen, add to witches
brew to look like "bloody ice."
Fun Tip: Give it a hand... fill a powderless surgical glove with
prepared frozen orange juice concentrate. Tie each glove tightly at the wrist and place on tray
and let lie flat in your freezer overnight or until firm. Before serving, cut the glove off and
place the frozen "hand" into the punch bowl.
Fun Tip: Place Dry Ice in a container hidden from view which will give off lots of eerie atmosphere.
