Forget trick or treating, Halloween is the perfect holiday to enjoy a truly terrifying punch. This recips is so simple to make, we promise your guests will be screaming for more! 

Spooky Punch
Serves 8 to 10 people

1000ml Pomegranate juice
100ml Lemon juice
500ml Dry Cider (organic if possible)
150ml Sugar syrup
3 x Vanilla pods (cut down the middle)

Punch Directions: 
Add all ingredients to a punch bowl and stir 

Directions for ice hand Garnish:
Take a non-latex glove (some people are allergic to latex) fill with water until it starts to resemble a hand and tie a knot in the end. Don’t over fill as otherwise the hand will become an odd shape.
Place in the freezer overnight. If you’re feeling adventurous (and have a large freezer) you could slightly shape the hand before it has completely frozen solid.
Before serving the punch, take the hand out of the freezer and place under cold running water to help release the glove, now carefully cut it off.
Add your ice hand to the punch and get ready to terrify your guests!

To make the hand even more frightful, add a couple of drops of natural red food coloring into the tips of the glove’s fingers. Bloody fingers at the ready!

Garnishes: Ice hand, pomegranate seeds (optional), anything spooky - we are fans of plastic spiders!
