I am poppin our Drunkymoms cherry. This has always been a fun board on the forums  that I decided it needed it’s own space on our new website. It will be a database of some yummy drinks to make and we will post some fantastic cocktail recipes  in the coming weeks for ya’ll to enjoy. 

I so wish I was having a Halloween party this year. I would LOVE to make spooky recipe for Halloween punch. The flavors of orange help add a different twist to the pumpkin….and let’s not forget the rum! What about the rum?!

Although it seems a bit involved with the additional recipe for Demerara cordial, it still seems simple enough. Head over to Honestly Yum for the complete post with picture directions.

Ingredients
  1. 750 ml bottle of spiced rum
  2. 1 cup orange juice
  3. 1 cup lemon juice
  4. 1 cup spiced syrup
  5. 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
  6. 2 1/2 cups sparkling water
  7. cinnamon sticks for garnish
  8. dry ice
  9. large pumpkin or punchbowl
Instructions
  1. In a large bowl, add the spiced rum, orange juice, lemon juice, spiced syrup and pumpkin puree. Stir to combine.
  2. Once combined, pour the mixture through a fine mesh strainer into a large pitcher and chill until ready to serve.
  3. Meanwhile, place a large bowl into your hollowed pumpkin. Be sure your bowl is safe to handle dry ice. Use a metal bowl if you have one available.
  4. Next, use tongs to fill the bottom of the bowl with dry ice, and cover with a slightly smaller bowl. This bowl will hold your punch. Again, make sure both bowls are safe for dry ice. Certain materials will shatter when exposed to dry ice.
  5. Pour the mixture into the punchbowl. Add the sparkling water and stir to combine.
  6. Carefully pour hot water into the bottom bowl so that it contacts the dry ice, thus activating the vapors.
  7. The length of time the smoky effect will last depends on how much dry ice you use, how hot the water is, and consequently how quickly the ice melts. To keep the effect going you will need to replenish the dry ice as it melts.
  8. Guests can ladle the punch into their glasses and garnish with a cinnamon stick. Remember to give it a stir as you serve, as the ingredients will naturally separate over time.
