Black punch?? That’s right. This potion creates a beverage the color of the darkest night!
You can make this even more fun…freeze water in latex gloves for your ice and have spooky frozen hands floating around in your punch bowl! Use a black plastic caldron for your punch bowl. (Be sure your latex gloves are not the kind with powder in them.)
