Serve Up Some Witches' Brew!

Around our house, serving up some witches' brew on ALL HALLOWS EVE is an absolute must!  Here are a couple variations of one of our favorite seasonal sippers.  Enjoy!

1 - 6oz. package orange gelatin
1/2 to 1 c. sugar
2 c. boiling water
1 - 46 oz. can apricot nectar
1 - 46 oz. pineapple juice
3/4 c. lemon juice
4 ltr. ginger ale, chilled

In a large bowl, dissolve gelatin and sugar in water.  Stir in the apricot nectar, pineapple juice and lemon juice.  Freeze in two 2-qt. freezer containers.  Remove from the freezer 2 to 3 hours before serving.  Place contents of one container in a punch bowl; mash with potato masher.  Stir in the ginger ale just before serving.  Repeat.  Yield: about 8 quarts.
1 - 46 oz. can pineapple juice, divided
1 - 3 oz. pkg. orange gelatin
1 - 64 oz. carton orange juice
1 litr. ginger ale, chilled
1 qt. orange sherbet

In a saucepan, bring 1 cup of pineapple juice to a boil.  Stir in gelatin until dissolved.  Cool; transfer to a large container.  Add orange juice and remaining pinapple juice.  Chill.  Just before serving, pour into a punch bowl; add ginger ale and mix well.  Top with scoops of sherbet.  Yield: 20-24 servings.
Tips: Place punch bowl in a hallowed out pumpkin shell for an extra festive flair!  Serve with gummy bugs or candy corn frozen in ice cubes!  Don't forget the Halloween-themed cups and straws!
