    Chef #1365024's Note:

    Hook up to some fun with these fanciful macabre cocktails. The punch is a delicious thirst-quencher of fruit, infusing Halloween partygoers with a nutritious alternative to sweetened soft drinks. But beware, only ghouls could help but be infected with a fatal case of giggles as they sip refreshments from transfusion sacks made simply from zipper-lock bags, twisty straws and curtain rings.

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      For transfusion bags:.
    2. 2
      6 zipper-lock sandwich bags.
    3. 3
      6 straws, twisted or flexible.
    4. 4
      6 shower curtain rings.
    5. 5
      Puree the fruit cocktail and cherries , with their liquids, in a blender or food processor until smooth. Mix in the cranberry juice cocktail and refrigerate until chilled.
    6. 6
      To prepare the "transfusion bags," punch a hole with a hole-punch in the corner of one layer of a zipper-lock sandwich bag just below the zipper. Insert a twisty straw or flexible straw in the hole and punch another hole in the same corner of the bag through both layers, just above the zipper. Thread a shower curtain ring through that hole. Repeat with remaining bags, straws and shower curtain rings.
    7. 7
      To serve, pour 1 cup of the cranberry-cherry mixture into each bag and seal. Hang by the shower curtain rings on hooks. Guests can hold their drink by the ring and sip through the straw.
    8. 8
      Note: If you want a more adult cocktail, add 3/4-cup vodka to the juice mixture before chilling. This mixture will yield 9, 3/4-cup servings.
