Delicious! As it is with any Halloween punch, a frozen ‘hand’ adds just the right spooky touch! The combined colors make a delightfully scary look!

Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 (.13 ounce) envelope unsweetened grape soft drink mix
  • 1 (.13 ounce) envelope unsweetened orange soft drink mix
  • 2 cups white sugar
  • 3 quarts cold water
  • 1 liter ginger ale

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 To make a frozen hand, wash a disposable glove, fill with water, seal with a rubber band and freeze until hard.
  2. 2 Stir together grape soft drink mix, orange soft drink mix, sugar and water until solids are dissolved. Combine with chilled ginger ale just before serving. Dip the frozen hand briefly in warm water, then peel off the glove. Float the prepared hand in the punch bowl for a ghastly effect.

  1. We LOVED this punch. I put dry ice in the big bowl below the punch bowl and I also put dry ice into the punch bowl itself. It had fog coming out all over the place. I also put gummy worms in the ice cubes which the children loved. Highly recommend this awesome recipe!
  2. Instead of using water for the hand make either red or green based Kool Aid and fill the glove. This way your hand is spooky colored rather than clear.
  3. I added vodka to this for my "adult" party and I had to keep re-filling it!! Also add different food coloring to the gloves to make it even spookier! We used extra blue red and green. Then we hung the gloves in our freezer with clothes pins so it froze the whole hand.
  4. Wrap your dry ice in cheese cloth to prevent a guest from accidentally drinking it.
  5. Forget the kids...this was a big hit at my office party! Really need to get the ingredients very cold though or the fingers melt off the hand too quickly (you end up with just a chunk of ice instead of a spooky hand). Overall great recipe and so simple!
  6. I love this punch for classroom Halloween parties served in a black cauldron with dry ice. I double the recipe as everyone has come back for 2nds or even 3rds. Thanks!
  7. Kids and adults both love this punch! Not only is it extremely quick and easy to make it is one of the best-tasting punches I've ever had...I would makes this for any occassion not only Halloween! I made a red("bloody")frozen hand by adding red food color to the water before freezing. Very effective and fun! - Read more ...
  8. This tastes like carbonated Kool Aid and I've never known a kid who didn't like both. I made it for our playgroup halloween party and it was a big hit. The dark punch with a hand floating in it was a great effect (I made four hands and ended up using two). I also bought - Read more ...
  9. The punch tasted great! It was a little more brown then black though. To make it more fun I added ice cubes with gummy worms froze in the middle. The cubes were a little easier than doing the hand and easier to transport to school or parties.
