Halloween: Scary "Goulade"

 1 pk Blue jelly powder [170g]
8 c Lemonaide Lemonaide or "Goulade" really packs a punch when you float a frightening
ghostly blue hand in your serving bowl.

For an even scarier effect, use red jelly powder to make a blood-red hand and tint the lemonade green. If you want, just let the gelatin set in a flat container, then cube it and serve with lemonade in dishes. Dissolve powder in 1-1/2 cups boiling water; let cool slightly. Meanwhile, thoroughly wash and dry inside and outside of new, medium-size stretch latex (medical) glove. Spray outside with baking spray; turn inside out. With 6-inch or longer skewer, puncture glove just below 1 side of opening; push skewer through to pierce opposite side, leaving wide opening. Suspend in tall pitcher. Carefully pour gelatin mixture into hanging glove. Close top with twist tie between gelatin mixture and skewer. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours or until firmly set. [Glove can be refrigerated for up to 48 hours.] Place glove flat in 12-cup punch bowl. Using scissors and bring careful not to puncture gelatin, cut glove open along palm and each finger; gently turn over and remove glove. Pour lemonade over gelatin hand. Makes 8 cups or 12 servings.

Bloody Bug Juice

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
24 oz Frozen strawberries -- thawed
6 oz Lemonade, frozen concentrate
1 qt Ginger ale
1 c Raisins
1 c Blueberries -- fresh or frozen

Recipe by: Creepy Cuisine, Lucy Munroe
Place the strawberries in a bowl and mash with a fork. In a large pitcher, mix the strawberry mash, lemonade and ginger ale. Place handfuls of raisins and blueberries (bugs) into tall glasses. Pour the liquid over the bugs, then sit back and watch the bugs and scum rise to the top of each glass. To quench a creepy crowd's thirst, double or tripple this recipe and serve in a punch bowl. Drape some gummy worms over the rim of your bowl for a particularly swampy-looking effect!
