Drink Of The Week - Blood-Red Punch

The perfect punch for a kid-friendly Halloween and I'm loving the scary ice cubes! Recipe courtesy of William-Sonoma's Kids Parties, serves 8.

3 cups cranberry-raspberry juice blend or other berry juice
3 cups sparkling water
1 cup thawed frozen strawberries or raspberries, puréed
1 cup crushed ice cubes

1. In a large pitcher or punch bowl, combine the juice, sparkling water, puréed berries, and ice.

2.  Stir gently to mix.

Scary Ice Cubes
1. Place Halloween items like 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 tray with berry juice and freeze.

2.  Place several cubes in 8 glasses and divide the punch evenly among each glass.
