Recipe: Swamp Monster Sherbet Punch
Murky, green, and swampy, this punch is sure to conjure up monstrous images of Swamp Thing. If this creepy-looking cocktail has your tastebuds worried, don’t fret — the spooky green coloring comes from tangy lime sherbet, so it’s a hit for ice cream-lovers (basically everyone). This party-friendly punch is spiked with vodka and makes a huge batch to power your fright fest. It only takes a few minutes to toss together, so mix it just as the guests and ghouls start to arrive.
A Bubbling Punch for Your Halloween Party
To make this punch, we’re combining tart and creamy lime sherbet with vodka, pineapple juice, and bubbly citrus soda for a refreshingly cool cocktail. To make your drink extra-swampy (in appearance — not taste!), rim each glass with matcha green tea powder to resemble moldy moss. Only the bravest will sip on these without question.
Try setting your bowl of punch on a wooden stump and decorating it with spider webs and Spanish moss to paint a looming picture. One sip and you’ll never know what monsters will emerge from out of the punch bowl!
