Ingredients

  • 1 quart orange sherbet, softened
  • 8 cups orange juice
  • 4 cups pineapple juice
  • 2 liters lemon-lime soda
  • 1 block dry ice
  • 2 cups boiling water
  • Gummy worms
  • Chef notes

    Sherbet punch brings back memories of childhood parties — and I see nothing wrong with adding some vodka in my old age! Using a frozen hand, creepy gummy worms and dry ice make this punch perfect for a Halloween celebration.

    Equipment Needed: 1 very large bowl, 1 punch bowl, plastic glove

    Technique Tip: Wear gloves or use tongs when dealing with dry ice — it will burn your skin! Keep away from children and pets.

    Swap Option: For a less sweet punch, replace lemon-lime soda with club soda. You can also experiment with different flavors of sherbet.

    Preparation

    Place water inside of clean plastic glove, filling it up. Tie the ends and place in freezer until frozen. Once ready to use, place under cool running water and carefully slide plastic off of frozen hand.

    Place punch bowl inside of larger bowl (this will be used for dry ice). Add sherbet, orange juice, pineapple juice and soda to punch bowl. Stir until combined. Add frozen hand and gummy worms to punch.

    Using tongs, carefully place dry ice cubes in large bowl, around punch. Pour in boiling water until it covers punch. This will activate the dry ice.
