Slime Punch Recipe
Give a pretty punchbowl a ghastly makeover for your Halloween party by filling it with foaming, green punch. This potent brew has a hint of slime…uh, lime…and is frighteningly simple to pull together at the last minute (no eye of newt or toe of frog required).
I chose lime sherbet for its tangy taste and dreary color. To get the foamy murkiness pictured, just give the punch a quick stir after adding the champagne and ginger ale without mixing the contents together too much. Add more ginger ale throughout the night to keep the foam from fading.
Obliging bugs and spiders (plastic or otherwise) can be frozen into ice cubes the day before for an extra splash of creepiness.
Read on for the recipe — and a non-alcoholic variation...
This recipe will fill a small punch bowl but can be easily doubled for a larger crowd.
- 1 2-quart container lime sherbet
- 1 liter ginger ale
- 1 bottle champagne
Empty entire container of lime sherbet into punch bowl. Slowly pour in ginger ale, then champagne. Set out cups with spider ice cubes, and serve.
For a non-alcoholic variation: Add a second liter of ginger ale, and replace the champagne with either 2 cups of lemon-lime soda or a 46-ounce can of pineapple juice, whichever you prefer.
