Good day eh!

So I am finally getting around to having my Halloween House Warming Party (nearly a year later), and I need some ideas for a punch.

I was dead set on making the Zombie Punch from the Trader Vic's Rum Cookery and Drinkery book... until I made a single serving and decided that most of the folks wouldn't dig on it as much as I do.

I am now trying the Tonga Punch, and I fear that my feelings are the same on this one. Now I am considering making a big ol' Scorpion for the party.

My plan is to have a large punch bowl filled with a concoction my friends won't forget, being iced down by floating ice brains made from those jello molds.

Any more ideas on a punch I can fill it with?

-T.J.

Lapu-Lapu makes a good party punch.

Yeah, I made the Lapu-Lapu again the other night to "test the waters", and it just might do.

Are there any other ideas out there? It doesn't necessarliy need to be a Halloween themed punch, but more importantly it needs to be tasty and impressive.

Any more ideas or punch experience?

Rum Barrel from the Grog Log mixes well in large batches and is very well received. I haven't put it in a punch bowl yet but have served it from a 3 gal cooler... The nice thing about the rum barrel recipe is that everything is 1 to 1 making for easy multiplication. The only drawback (?) to this punch would be it strength... it's a pretty potent drink for party dippers. You could cut back on the 151 by 1/2 without significantly changing the taste. Try it and see. I like the floating brains!

Rum Barrel

1 oz fresh lime juice
1 oz orange juice
1 oz unseetened pineapple juice
1 oz Alize passion fruit liqueur
1 oz Sugar syrup
1 oz Meyers's dark rum
1 oz Bacardi 151 rum

This is my sangria recipe and it works very well as a punch (yes, serve it in a punchbowl). Young and old, hip and square, everyone raves about this and now whenever I get invited to a party the hostess always says "please bring some of that sangria you make."

3 bottles cheap Merlot
1 cup cheap brandy
1 cup Triple Sec
juice of 4 Oranges
juice of 4 Lemons
4 Oranges thinly sliced
4 Lemons thinly sliced
4 Peaches, diced
2 Apples, sliced.

Combine all into a container. Refrigerate overnight. (I made mine in two big glass jars)

Pour into punch bowl. Add at least half a large bottle of 7 Up over the top. Add ice.

Makes two punchbowls' worth.

Thanks guys!

I have considered the Rum Barrel, and just may go that direction. However... the Sangria recipe sounds really good too!
I've got a case of 2 buck Chuck (Charles Shaw Merolt) in the garage that would do just the trick.

Any nmore sucesses out there?

Well, what punch did you decide to go with and how was it?
