• 3 bottles dark red blend wine*
  • ¾ cup brandy
  • ½ cup organic orange juice
  • 3 blood oranges, sliced
  • 2 blood oranges, juiced
  • 3 cups frozen blackberries
  • 2 cups black grapes
  • Spider charcoal ice cubes, optional
  • Dry ice, optional
  1. Add the wine, brandy, orange juice, and fruit to a large pitcher. Mix together with a spoon and keep in fridge for 4 hours or overnight to let the flavor to develop.
  2. When ready to serve, add to individual glasses or large caldron. Add dry ice to the caldron for the “smoky” witches’ brew effect. Wear gloves handling or do not touch the dry ice directly. It will burn your hands! Also, dry ice only keeps in standard temperature freezers for less than a day (I learned this the hard way). So buy it the day of serving. If adding dry ice to the individual glasses, note that you can consume only once the dry ice has melted. If it touches your mouth, it will burn your precious lips and that’s not a cute look. To break into smaller ice “cubes” I added it to a plastic bag, sealed it, and slammed it against the floor. Probably not the most professional means, but hey, it works. But remember, protect your hands and skin! We recommend not doing this around children.
  3. If using charcoal spider ice cubes, add to individual serving glasses or toss into the caldron. Simply mix one scoop of charcoal with 6 fl. oz. water and add to spider molds. Freeze until set, about 5 hours.
  4. Enjoy responsibly :)
