I don't have a picture but I make what we call lovingly "blood clot stew"

In a large punch bowl you mix
1/3 of a 2 gallon jug of fruit punch
1/2 of 2 liter Canada dry ginger ale
1/2 of a large can of dole pineapple juice
*for adult party add pineapple rum for tasty results.

Now for the blood clots very simple. Grab a cheese grader with large cuts, take a packaged of fresh straw berries. Run them over the slicer making the clots. Dump said clots into punch and it really does look gross but taste great.

Also for a added bonus you can freeze a hand with half Orange juice half ginger ale and it does look like a severed hand. Also you can scoop lime or Orange sherbert into the top for a foamy cool surprise.
