Steaming Witches’ Cauldron
It is always a great fun for the kids to see the witches’ brew steaming and bubbling..throw in some fake eyeballs and fake cockroaches to make it even nastier.
Dry ice can be toxic if not handled the right way. That’s why I have attached the following info on how to add dried ice safely to drinks. Please read and follow the instructions carefully.
ADD DRY ICE TO BEVERAGES
It is OK to put Dry Ice into beverages for drinking as long as the dry ice is food grade. Use 2 to 4 pounds of Dry Ice for each gallon of room temperature punch. Use large pieces of Dry Ice not small pieces. The Dry Ice is heavier than ice and will sink to the bottom. Do not use any regular ice! The Dry Ice will do the cooling and must not be eaten or swallowed. Too much Dry Ice will freeze the beverage so have extra standing by. It will bubble and give off the most fog when the beverage is room temperature. When most of the Dry Ice has sublimated, it will surround itself with ice and float to the top. There is still a small piece of Dry Ice in the center of these ice pieces so do not serve or eat them. Carefully ladle the beverage into drinking glasses without any Dry Ice. Add regular ice to glasses for cooler drinks.
- 1 large bowl
- Organic cranberry juice (not made from concentrate!)- room temperature
- Organic apple juice (not made from concentrate!)- room temperature
- Sparkly water
- 1 lemon, sliced
- Dry ice
- Ice (optional)
- Combine one part cranberry juice with 2 parts apple juice and 2 parts sparkly water.
- Add lemon slices and pour in the bowl.
- Mix room temperature juices together.
- When ready for drinks add the dry ice. Do not touch Dry Ice directly, but use insulated gloves or tongs. Ladle juice into cups without any Dry Ice and it will be perfectly safe. If you want cooler drinks add ice to the cups not the punch bowl.
