Halloween Drinks

Here are some great drinks to try for Halloween time for kids of all ages.

*Bloody Bug Juice

24 ounces frozen strawberries thawed
6 ounces lemonade, frozen concentrate
1 quart ginger ale
1 cup raisins
1 cup blueberries fresh or frozen

Place the strawberries in a bowl and mash with a fork.
In a large pitcher, mix the strawberry mash, lemonade
And ginger ale. Place handfuls of raisins and
Blueberries (bugs) into tall glasses. Pour the liquid
Over the bugs, then sit back and watch the bugs and
Scum rise to the top of each glass. To quench a
Creepy crowd's thirst, double or triple this recipe
And serve in a punch bowl. Drape some gummy worms
Over the rim of your bowl for a particularly
Swampy-looking effect!

*Halloween Drink
Mix something yellow with something blue; orange juice and mountain dew are good for the yellow. Great blue drink - kool-aid is good for the blue. You'll end up with a radioactive shade of green. If you're using a punch bowl try this: get some latex gloves, fill them with water or juice, freeze. Unmold carefully and float "disembodied" hands in a punch bowl. Dry ice and black lighting is a good effect, too.

1 pkg. Grape unsweetened kool-ade
1 pkg. Orange unsweetened kool-ade
2 cups sugar
3 quarts cold water
1 quart chilled gingerale.

This will be as black as midnight, but delicious.

*Goblin Goo Drink

1 pkg. (8-serving size) JELL-O Brand Grape or Orange Flavor Gelatin Dessert
4 cups (1 qt.) cold prepared KOOL-AID Grape or Orange Flavor Soft Drink Mix

PREPARE gelatin as directed on package.
REFRIGERATE 4 hours or until firm.
BREAK gelatin into small flakes with fork. Spoon about 1/2 cup gelatin into each of 8tall glasses. Pour 1/2 cup cold soft drink over gelatin in each glass. Serve immediately with a straw to sip gelatin pieces and soft drink.
VARIATIONS: Two Color Goo: Prepare grape and orange flavor gelatin as directed on package. Refrigerate and break into flakes as directed. Layer 1/4 cup orange gelatin flakes, 1/4 cup grape gelatin flakes and additional 1/4 cup orange gelatin flakes in each glass. Pour orange cold soft drink. Over gelatin in each glass.
FIZZY Goblin Goo: Just before serving, prepare KOOL-AID as directed, substituting cold seltzer for water.

Next time I will post some drinks for the adults. ;)
