"Bloody" Raspberry-Grape Punch (for Halloween)

Friday, October 19, 2012

With two kids' birthdays in October, I'm always on the hunt for fun new Halloweeny foods to throw into our repertoire!  Although we usually go for the cute, rather than the spooky, this drink caught our eye, because of the delicious looking combination of ingredients it called for!

We found the recipe for this "bloody" punch in a recent issue of Everyday Food and decided to taste test it the same day we saw the recipe, to see if we wanted to serve it at my daughter's upcoming twelfth birthday party.  (Click here to see some other fun Halloween recipes)
    
It's just a few ingredients...

Pour it all into a pitcher...

Put a scoop of raspberry sorbet into each glass...

and the rest into the pitcher.  Pour into glasses and serve immediately.  I don't really have the photography skills to make it look spooky and "bloody" and frankly my kids were so enamored with how good it tasted, that they couldn't have cared less about what it looked like.  But I suppose it was the right color for blood and could easily be made to look spooky with the right lighting.  :)

Enjoy!
