Today is Halloween, most awaited festival for my kids, after this they love Christmas as Santa comes and give presents to them. They love to dress up for the Halloween and excited to go to trick-or-treat. When they come back tired after trick-or-treat (just kidding) I like to serve them with this delicious blackberry lemonade eye ball punch and Transylvania punch. If you are hosting a kid friendly Halloween party this is a perfect drink.
Today I did a last minute candy shopping at Walmart, as I kept it until last minute as keeping candy in my home for long time is not a wise idea, while walking to the store, I met a lady and after saying hi to her, I told her I am in search of candy shopping. She told me she didn’t buy any candy, as she will take her kids to trick-or-treat and once they comes back she will switch off the light and no more candy serving. I thought she is genius, and then I told this to my hubby, he told me if everybody thinks like that then there will be no candy for any trick-or-treater.
These two drinks are easy to make and takes no extra work. First make a puree of black berry with lemon juice and then add sprite and eye balls made with lychee and blueberry or lychee and maraschino cherry. For Transylvania punch first make cherry gelatin and scoop it into your favorite lemon soda. Kids are happy and you don’t need to work hard. I didn’t add any extra sugar as it already has enough sweet from the soda and gelatin.
Halloween means something spooky. My kids like the movie Hotel Transylvania, so I decided to try the drink in its name. Kids will love this drink as it has their favorite soda and cheery jelly.
I already made an adult drink. This time I didn’t enough time to make treats, planned lot but nothing turned to work it out.
