Halloween is around the corner, and my kids are so much excited to dress up and go for trick-o-treat. I am planning to make Boo-biscotti for them. It is another Friday so for us adults I made this Mr. Hitchcock’s Rum punch.
My daughter wants to be Bella, where as son want to be Kylo Ren. He is a Star Wars fan. Both of them got their costumes already and their accessories too. I need to get some candies for them as well as for trick-o treater’s.
I got this recipe from a magazine while waiting in my dentist’s office. Yes, doctor’s office wait are most notorious ones with my two kids running around and my hubby who like to look at his favorite National geographic magazine, I want to be strict mom telling them to not run around. But 75% of the time my order goes in vain. As doctor starts calling one by one of our family I got some time to flip the magazine and found this recipe. As usual I adjusted the ingredients based on my pantry, and made changes to get this delicious drink.
For me Hitchcock’s movies are best horror movies, which keep you on the hook. My hubby is a fan of horror movies, he watches mainly this genre compared to any other ones. I thought if Mr. Hitchcock’s movies are good then the rum punch in his name can’t be bad. I decide to try my hand on it. I also tried to make it a fruit based alcoholic drink. If you follow this blog you will know I am fruity booze fan.
This is a simple drink made with orange juice, pineapple juice, white rum, almond liqueur and orange liqueur. I made it with fresh juices I had in my hand, or you can use store bought juices. Even with fresh juice I found it sweet. If you are hosting Halloween party try to make this; your guests will enjoy this drink with spookiness in its name but sweetness in its taste.
