• Wicked Greens Soup with Fresh Mint

Mix a bloody concoction for your Halloween guests.

Our favorite cocktail recipe…

• Le Cilantro Rouge 

Create a terrifying punch. All you need is a tasty punch recipe, water, food coloring and a disposable, rubber glove. (Note: Make sure the glove does not have powder inside.) A few days before you're ready to serve your punch, mix water with 1 to 2 drops of food coloring (the color is your choice, but I suggest blood red or witch green). Fill the glove with the water mixture about 2/3 full. Use a rubber band or string to tie at the wrist. Let the glove freeze for 1 to 2 days so that it forms a solid ice cube. Once you're ready to serve to guests, carefully remove the disposable glove from the newly formed frozen hand and float it to your punch bowl for a terrifying treat.

Our favorite punch recipes...

• Cantaloupe and Strawberry Mint Fruit Punch 

• Ginger Minted Sparkling Punch 

• Hot Mulled Apple Cider with Cranberry and Rose Hips
