Cherry Eyeball Halloween Punch Recipe
Yields: 10 Servings
- 30 oz Canned lychees in syrup (2 cans)
- 1 cup Blackberries or blueberries
- 4 cups Cherry juice
- 1 cup Orange juice
- 2 liters Sparkling water
- 3 cups Ice
- Gin, vodka or light rum to taste
Step 1: Assemble Eyeballs
To make your ‘eyeballs’ drain the lychees from the can, reserving 1-2 cups of the lychee syrup. Cut off the ends of blackberries (or if using blueberries, use the whole blueberry), and carefully stuff into the lychees. Skewer your fruit of choice and the lychee together, place on a plate and chill until ready to serve.
Step 2: Make Punch
In a punch bowl over ice, combine reserved lychee syrup, sparkling water, and the cherry and orange juices. Top with the spirit of your choice. Mix well and serve with eyeball skewer. Add a few non-skewered ‘eyeballs’ directly to the punch for extra spooky fun.
