    Default Best punch ever!!

    And trust me folks, I have had a lot of punch over the years. This one was refreshing, light, and went down soooooo easy. (Which is a good thing or a bad thing, depending... )


    WITCHES BREW PUNCH

    2 2-liter bottles margarita mix
    3 cups Tequila
    3/4 cup of Triple Sec
    1/2 cup fresh lime juice
    1/4 cup Blue Curacao
    1 2-liter bottle lemon/lime soda,chilled

    Combine margarita mix, tequila,triple sec, lime juice and curacao, cover and freeze til slushy (4 hrs) put in punch bowl, stir in lemon/lime soda. Serve immediately. Makes roughly 2 Gals.


    Now, let me give you the tips: they are crazy if they think something with that much alcohol in it is going to get slushy in 4 hours. We left ours in the freezer for almost six, and no slush. We actually made 2 batches, and the 2nd batch sat in the freeezer all night, and was slushy in the morning. So I'd give it at least 12 hours if you really want slush. It was still delicious without the slushy consistency, and everyone LOVED it. I also used bottled lime juice (cheaper than real limes) and it was still wonderful, and no mess .

    I am not joking, boys and girls, you have GOT to try this, it is FABULOUS, and a great dark green color.

    I'll bet you could make it with strawberry margarita mix and have it turn out red, if that suits your decor better. Hmmmm...might have to test that, and get back to ya! It's a tough job, but somebody's got to do it

    Sounds super yummy!! The red version may definitely be the better option for my decor. Thanks for the info. I may have to try this. I'll let you know how it turns out.

    To be on the safe side, I would suggest that you don't use the glow sticks. Not sure what's inside of them, but if they happened to leak, and something nasty inside, you'd surely wish you wouldn't have put them in there.

    You might try freezing ice cubes made from tonic water (colored with food coloring or plain). Tonic water glows under a black light, maybe not as much as a glow stick, but at least you wouldn't have to worry about it (unless someone cannot have tonic water). For the glow sticks.... you could make a layer of them on a tray, and set the punch bowl on top of them to add some color under the bowl.

    Check out this video from another post on this board.....http://www.halloweenforum.com/party-...uestion-3.html .....it shows the glow in the dark tonic water ice cubes (It doesn't say it in the video, but DON"T use the polymer beads and dye in food/drink items....that's only for decoration)

    I totally agree with lilwitch. Not sure what is in those glow sticks, all I do know is one of our kids accidentally left a glowing glow stick on our wood table before we all went to bed and the next morning it was almost like it had melted/softened the varnish on the table.
    As I was going up the stair, I saw a man that wasn't there.
    He wasn't there again today...Oh how I wish he'd go away.
