Black Halloween Punch

We liked this punch better after it sat and the carbonation was pretty much gone, actually.  So I would make this ahead of time for us.  Plus the extra chill time makes it better! Serving it with some dry ice....serious Halloween fun!


Recipe from: Hip Hip Halloween

1 envelope grape kool-aid
1 envelope orange kool-aid
2 cups sugar
3 quarts of cold water
1 liter ginger ale

Mix kool-aid and sugar, add water and mix well.  Stir in ginger ale.  Chill and serve.

1 red pepper, diced
⅓ cup red onion, minced
1 jalapeƱo, seeded & minced
½ lime, juiced
3 tablespoons chopped cilantro
1 tsp olive oil

salt to taste


Combine all ingredients and let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes.

*Recipe said it would be good on fish or chicken, but ours didn't last long enough to try it.  Maybe next time :)
