It's Bloody Exciting

Platelet Punch is a pretty, pretty punch that tastes great and is easy to make.

It's perfect for Halloween parties, Twilight or vampire parties, or any time you want a yummy drink that looks like it was just drained from someone's wrist.

Best of all, you don't need to murder anyone for this drink, just grab the few simple ingredients and perform some kitchen magic minutes before your next party.

Surprise Your Party Guests

Your party guests will be very surprised when you tell them you made a "special" platelet punch for the Halloween party. And when you pour out glasses of this bloody-looking punch, they'll be even more surprised.

The biggest surprise of all though, may just be when they take a sip and find out how good it tastes.

Ingredients

  • 2 liters Cranberry Juice
  • 64 oz Apple Juice
  • 64 oz Red Hawaiian Punch
  • 1 pint Vodka, Berry Flavored or Regular (optional)

Instructions

  1. Chill juices thoroughly until ready to mix up punch.
  2. Into large punch bowl, pour cranberry juice, apple juice, and Hawaiian Punch.
  3. Mix juices, then as much vodka as you wish. A pint should be plenty for most people. If you just want a little pizzazz in the punch, use less vodka or you can even leave it out all together.
  4. Taste, add more cranberry juice if necessary.
  5. Serve cool.

Serving the Punch

Serve this Wicked Punch in a Black Cauldron

I prefer serving this punch in a black bowl or a witch's cauldron, especially for Halloween.

It makes it look much more mysterious and creepy, plus it makes it an even deeper red.

The black bowl makes it even more surprising when your party guests go to get a drink and find what looks like blood.

Premake the Punch

Making the Punch Before the Party

If you wish, you can mix up this punch early and just keep it in the fridge for a couple of hours or even overnight. That way you don't have to rush before the party.

Knowing I was going to take this punch over to a Halloween party at a friend's house, I mix it up the night before and poured the premixed punch back into the bottles the juices came in then kept it in the refrigerator. It was so easy to empty the jugs into the punchbowl when I got to the party, and it left me more time to work on my costume.

Cheers for a Bloody Good Halloween Drink
