Witches Brew

This drink is fun for kids of all ages and sure to be a hit at any Halloween party!


For the Hand:
1 (10oz) package frozen raspberries, thawed
2½ cups cranberry juice
2 envelopes unflavored gelatin

For the Brew:
2L ginger ale
2L sparkling apple cider (non-alcoholic)
6 gummi snake candy

1. To make the frozen hand: Wash and rinse the outside of a vinyl dish-washing glove. Turn glove inside out and set aside. In a 4 cup measuring cup, combine the thawed raspberries and cranberry juice.

2. Pour 2 cups of the raspberry mixture into a small saucepan. Sprinkle the gelatin over and let stand 2 minutes. Warm over low heat, stirring constantly, just until gelatin dissolves. Mix back into the reserved raspberry mixture in the measuring cup.

3. Pour raspberry mixture into the inverted glove. Gather up the top of the glove and tie securely with kitchen twine. Freeze until solid, or several days if possible.

4. To serve: Carefully cut vinyl glove away from frozen hand. Place frozen hand, palm side up, leaning against side of a large punch bowl. Pour in ginger ale and sparkling cider. Garnish with gummy snakes.

Important Note: You should not use latex gloves to make the hand as latex allergies can be very serious and develop suddenly. Please ensure that you use only a vinyl glove to make this recipe.
