    Annacia's Note:

    by Yvette Marquez-Sharpnack, Veronica Gonzalez-Smith, and Evangelina Soza in: Muy Bueno: Three Generations of Authentic Mexican Flavor. "This intoxicating drink was inspired by a Halloween night when I was using dry ice in a punch bowl. The eerie trail of wispy smoke created by the dry ice looked like the long, flowing gown worn by La Llorona. La Llorona, according to ancient Mexican folklore, was a beautiful woman who drowned her children to be with a man and when he wanted nothing to do with her, she lost her mind. In the afterlife, she walks up and down bodies of water, wailing and looking for her children. It's a conversation starter for a Halloween party, but you can skip the dry ice for a yummy drink year-round."
