Bloody Punch with Floating Hand
by Stella Zedman
3 cups (500 mL) cranberry juice
1-1/2 cups (250 mL) apple juice
1-1/2 cups (250 mL) grape juice
2 cups (500 mL) caffeine-free cola
1 cup (250 mL) frozen strawberries
In a large pitcher or punch bowl, combine the cranberry juice, apple juice and grape juice. Stir, then refrigerate until you're ready to serve. At the last possible moment, add the cola, the strawberries and, of course, the Floating Hand of Death (directions below).
In a measuring cup or jar, stir a few drops of green food coloring into some water — not too much, just enough to give it a slightly decomposed tint. Pour the greenish water into a disposable rubber glove (the stretchy kind — make sure it's not powder-coated inside) and tie the top securely. Place in the freezer for several hours or overnight. At serving time, peel the glove off the hand and deposit icy hand in chilled punch. Yum.
Servings: Makes about 10 servings.
