Witch’s Brew

2 Bottles of champagne
1 Gallon orange juice
1/2 Gallon orange sherbert
1 Bunch peeled black grapes
Sugar to taste
1 2-Liter of lemon-lime soda
1/2 Bottle vodka
Small pieces of dry ice
Bunches of grapes for garnish

Combine champagne and orange juice in large punch bowl. Scoop sherbert into bowl until it has produced a nice scum over the top. Add sugar to taste if desired. Float peeled grapes in mixture, and garnish bowl with the rest of the grapes. Drop in pieces of dry ice for steaming effect, but note that no one should put dry ice in his/her mouth. If you want to raise or lower the alcohol content in the punch, add vodka or clear soda respectively.


Witches Fingers

I ran across tons of recipes for crackers or cookies meant to resemble witches fingers by using blanched almonds for a long, scraggly fingernail. This recipe, however, actually looked appetizing. It’s more of a cheddar cracker like thing than just a piece of dough shaped into a finger. Recipe for a potential Halloween party you could be hosting this weekend?!


Lots, lots, LOTS going on this Saturday night–what some may argue to be the main holiday evening this year. If you don’t already have a Halloween party to attend, here are some of the 100s of happenings and parties going on in the city tonight:
