    Kim Edgar's Note:

    A Halloween favorite (young and old) for parties. Frothy lemon-lime punch with a spooky floater. Originaly from (Family Circle?) "Halloween Tricks & Treats 2000" magazine. I have successfully packed this punch in a cooler and sent it to school for my 4th grader to assemble at party time. Not a drop is ever left.

      I made this for a teenage Halloween party this weekend. Everyone wanted to know what was in it and I told them that I just used various body parts. I wasn't able to use lime sherbet so used orange and the effect was great. I tinted the punch green with food coloring to make it even greener, floated the hands that I froze curled around empty soda cans to make the fingers curl upwards in the punch, and then added the sherbet to the limeade and soda which made it sort of foam up a little bit. It looked pretty gruesome because the orange sherbet resembled something fleshy floating in green, foaming digestive juices or something. The effect was wonderful served in a large creepy looking cauldron with a plastic bone ladle. Sometimes you make punch for a visual effect and lose something in the flavor, but this one was a delicious sweet tart concoction that tasted terrific AND presented a much desired ghoulish and spooky looking beverage. It was very popular at the party. Thanks for sharing.

      I was skeptical- I thought it would be way too sweet, but it was nice and tangy and very good. Everyone loved it. Served it for a 2 year old's frog themed birthday party.

      This tasted pretty good - the kids enjoyed it. One finger broke off of the hand when taking it out of the glove, but the biggest problem was that it didn't float. Weird. But great punch for Halloween!
