If you’re having a gluten free halloween party you’re definately going to be needing some drinks to go with all that yummy food and candy.  I came across a really good punch that just happens to gluten free and really tasty.  And for the kids it’s a fun and spooky addition to the party.

 Icy Spiders in My Punch

What you need:

  • 12 gummy spiders
  • 1 surgical glove (non powdered)
  • 1 gallon green fruit punch (Walmart’s Great Value Kiwi Strawberry brand) is a gluten free brand
  • 1 (2 liter bottle) ginger ale
  • 1 quart Raspberry Sherbet (Edy’s Brand) is gluten free

Fill an ice cube tray 2/3 full of water*.  Add a gummy spider to each section of the ice cube tray.  Place in the freezer for at least 4 hours or until solid.  Fill the surgical glove with water and tie the end closed.  Place the glove in the freezer and freeze at least 4 hours until frozen or overnight.  Pour the fruit punch into a 7 quart punch bowl.  Stir in the ginger ale until well combined then add the raspberry sherbet.  Place the frozen spider ice cubes into the punch.  Remove the glove from the frozen ice hand and lay that in the middle of the punch.

Kids love the scary aspect of this punch along with its great taste.  You can use any flavor or color of gluten free fruit punch you like and lemon lime soda can be used in place of the ginger ale, if you prefer.

* If you don’t want the ice to water down your punch, use ginger ale in the ice cube tray and surgical glove instead of water.

Makes approximately 32 servings.
