It wouldn’t be right to celebrate Halloween without some kind of festive vat of red punch. Even Bones, our creepy skeleton night watch seems to approve.
For a family friendly Halloween fruit punch just leave the spirits out. Or for a mixed crowd, add 1-ounce of clear rum or vodka to individual 1-cup servings.
