Halloween – Slushy Orange Punch

This is a great punch — it works well for kids parties, as well as other occasions.  We’ve used this at New Years, and Halloween and the kids all loved it.  It looks really festive, and suits the Halloween holiday.

For Halloween, we served this in a Witches cauldron, which was sitting in a large platter that had dry ice.  Serve with gelatin Pixies, for some more fun, if you can find them.


Slushy Orange Punch

1 6oz package Orange Jello
3/4 cup sugar
2 cups boiling water
30 ounce can Pineapple Juice
46 ounce can Apricot Juice
16 ounces orange juice
1/2 cup lemon juice
4 liters Ginger Ale, or Sprite/7-Up

In a large container, dissolve the Jello and sugar in the boiling water, and stir well, until everything is dissolved.  Stir in the juices and mix well. Put in the freezer – I use two of the gallon ziplock bags.

About 2 hours before serving, remove the mixture from the freezer to soften, but not melt totally.  Smash it around in the bags, and then place the contents of one bag in a punch bowl or a similarly large bowl.  If it is not smashed up enough and soft, use a potato masher.  Pour in 1-2 litres of the soda and stir to mix.
