A recipe for a witch's brew is a recipe for a Halloween-themed punch, and it calls for 10 ounces of thawed frozen raspberries, 2 1/2 cups of cranberry juice, 2 envelopes of unflavored gelatin, 2 liters of ginger ale and 2 liters of non-alcoholic sparkling apple cider. To add further detail to the Halloween theme, purchase a few sour or regular gummi snakes. The recipe also makes a frozen hand to put into the punch when it is complete.
To make the frozen hand, thoroughly wash and rinse the inside and outside of a clean rubber glove. Turn the glove inside out when it is dry, and set it aside. In a large measuring bowl, combine the cranberry juice with the raspberries, and then pour two cups of this mixture into a saucepan and sprinkle gelatin over it, letting it stand for 2 minutes. Warm this mixture over a low heat, and stir constantly until the gelatin dissolves. Mix this back with the rest of the raspberry mixture in the cup.
When ready, pour the raspberry mixture into an inverted glove. Close the bottom of the glove off, and secure it with twine, letting it freeze until it is completely solid. When it is ready to serve, cut the glove and put the frozen hand leaning up against the punch bowl. Pour in the cider and ginger ale and garnish with the gummi snakes.
