Hey folks! Thirsty Thursday is crawling to a close here and I wanted to share a new recipe with you!

This drink comes straight from Michael Chiarello, one of the many brilliant Food Network Stars. Yes, it is a Halloween themed drink, but it sure sounds fun – and I can’t imagine it would be hard to devirginize it, LOL!

Prep Time: 15 min
Inactive Prep Time: 24 hr 0 min
Cook Time: —

Level: Easy

Serves: enough ice for 1 big punch bowl



Mix the juices together. Add the sorbet, softened, and stir until it disappears. Add the seltzer.


Before serving, chill with the Body Part Cubes of floating face and hands.


Pour into glasses and stir with glow stick swizzle sticks.

Body Part Ice Cubes:

12 cups cold water

2 to 3 drops green food coloring


Special Equipment:

1 roll packing tape

1 roll plastic wrap

2 plastic gloves

1 plastic Halloween face mask


Color the cold water with enough green food coloring to make it stand out against the background of thepunch.


Use packing tape to seal of the eyesnose and mouth openings of the mask. Line the inside of mask withplastic wrap to prevent leaking. Place it in a bowl that will hold the mask as still as possible while freezing. Fill with the colored water up to the line of the mask, making sure not to spill over if possible. Place bowl in freezer to solidify, at least 24 hours.


Fill 2 food service gloves with colored water and twist and knot opening closed to make a tight seal. Freeze gloves for 12 to 24 hours.


When frozen, cut plastic gloves off. Take ice out of mask, putting hot water on the outside of the mask, if necessary, to help it come out easily.


Carefully float the face and hands in the punch.
