Ghoul's Punch

Found this recipe in an e-mail from Better Homes and Gardens, and the recipe is available at their website. I suggest an additional ingredient at the end. The recipe looks relatively easy to follow.

8 (about 10-ounce) servings Prep: 20 minutes
Freeze: 8 to 24 hours
6 cups unsweetened pineapple juice, chilled
3 cups cold water
1 6-ounce can frozen lemonade concentrate
4 blood orange or orange slices
1 recipe Frozen Hands (see recipe below)

1. For punch, in a punch bowl stir together pineapple juice, water, and lemonade concentrate. Float orange slices and Frozen Hands in punch. Makes 8 (about 10-ounce) servings.

Frozen Hands: Carefully pour cranberry juice cocktail into 2 or 3 clear plastic gloves.* Fill the gloves so that the fingers can move easily. Tightly seal the gloves with rubber bands. Place on a baking sheet lined with paper towels. Freeze until firm. Use scissors to cut the gloves off the frozen hands. If any fingers break off, add them separately to punch.

(I would suggest the addition of Malibu Spiced Rum, add to taste. - JW)

*Note: Be sure to use gloves without powder. Or, rinse powdered gloves thoroughly before using.
