To make scary ice cubes, place Halloween items (such as plastic spiders and bugs or gummi worms) in ice cube trays, leaving a little of each item exposed. (Be sure each item is big enough not to be easily swallowed.) Fill the tray with water and freeze. Place several cubes in each glass before filling with punch.
- 3 cups cranberry-raspberry juice blend or other berry juice
- 3 cups sparkling water
- 1 cup thawed frozen strawberries or raspberries, pureed
- 1 cup crushed ice cubes
In a 2-quart pitcher or punch bowl, combine the juice, sparkling water, pureed berries and ice. Stir gently to mix. Divide the punch evenly among 8 glasses. Serves 8.
