Genre of the Month, October - Horror, Recipes

Witch’s Brew

Bubbling cauldrons and cackling witches often grace the pages of classic horror stories, so what better way to kick off horror month than with a witch’s brew?  This is an easy drink recipe that can be enjoyed by spell casters of all ages, and it’s got lots of juice in it too!  So grab your cauldron (or punch bowl), your broom, a toad, and these ingredients:

  • 4 cups of Orange Juice
  • 4 cups of Sparkling Apple Cider
  • 1 cup Club Soda
  • 1/2 cup Lemon Juice
  • Dry Ice

Combine your Orange juice and Apple Cider with the Lemon juice in your bowl.  Add the Club Soda and be sure to taste it.  If it’s still too sweet, you can add more club soda, but be sure not to fill the bowl up too high or the dry ice will cause it to spill over!  When the flavor is to your liking, slowly add the chunks of dry ice for that spooky potion effect.  You can add smaller pieces of dry ice to the individual adult’s glasses, but it should not be given to children!  You can also add some red food coloring to the bottom of your glass to add a bloody touch to your potion.  This recipe will serve at least 12 witches, so be sure to invite the whole coven and enjoy!
