Vampire’s Punch
Serves 12
18 oz. SKYY Infusions Cherry
8 oz. Lime Juice
6 oz. Cranberry Juice
2.5 oz. Rose’s Grenadine
7UP
Luxardo Cherries

Wash and remove pits and stems from fresh cherries, and muddle in cocktail shaker. Combine the rest of the ingredients except 7UP in bowl and stir. Top with 7UP and muddled cherries. Add dry ice to the punch bowl to get the spooky effect!

HOW TO USE DRY ICE

Drop in a sizable chunk in right before the punch is served, and watch the bubbling and steam transform your living room into a lavish laboratory. As the fogging effect wears off, simply refresh the bowl throughout the party with additional dry ice fragments. And remember—although the dry ice will sink to the bottom of the bowl, it’s best to have a bartender ladle out each glass just to be certain that someone doesn’t accidentally scoop the block up and plop it into a drink.

SAFETY

Because dry ice is so cold, it can cause major damage, like frostbite, if it comes in direct contact with your skin. Be sure to use tongs to place it in your drink. Also, remember that dry ice is used only for its visual and cooling effects, and the tablets themselves are not meant to be consumed. When you purchase dry ice, it will be pre-packaged in a special container; store it there until you’re ready to use it.
