Come Party With Me: Halloween Bash — Drinks

At a blowout bash, like the costume party I am hosting this Saturday where the guest list tops 50, it's important to get a large amount of alcohol. I'll be buying a keg of easy-to-drink beer — Miller or Bud Light — that both guys and gals can enjoy.

Along with the beer, I'll serve a friend's recipe for deliciously dangerous punch that tastes so good you can hardly tell it's alcoholic. When my guests ask me what they can bring to the party, I'm suggesting they bring one of the alcohols used to make the punch. Lots of water and ice are also necessary to ward off evil hangovers. To ensure that the party flows smoothly, the keg and punch will be set up in different rooms.

For my tips on purchasing kegs and to get the recipe for the dangerously delicious punch,


Dangerously Delicious Punch
From Melicious

1 bottle white rum
1 bottle Southern Comfort
1 bag frozen mixed berries
1/2 liter bottle Sprite
6 small cans pineapple juice
Ice

  1. Place all of the liquids in the fridge for several hours to chill.
  2. Fill a large punch bowl with the rum, Southern Comfort, and berries. Let mixture sit for ten minutes (and up to two hours, chilled) to allow flavors to meld and the berries to infuse the alcohol.
  3. Add the juice and sprite and ice. Stir to combine and serve.

Makes one punch bowl.

If you have never ordered or purchased a keg before, here are some helpful tips:

  • Locate a liquor store, beer store, or brewery near you that sells kegs and see what they have in stock.
  • Order yours at least three days before your event to ensure that you can pick it up the day of the party.
  • Kegs come in different sizes, so figure out how much beer you need. A pony keg (half keg) is 7.5 gallons and serves 27 people three 12-ounce servings. A full keg is 15.5 gallons and serves 55 people three 12-ounce servings.
  • Some stores deliver, but be sure to ask when you call to order your keg. If you do have to pick it up, make arrangements to have some heavy-lifters come with you.
  • Don't forget to bring your ID and money for a deposit when you pay for the keg.

I just had a pumpkin carving party this past weekend and was really happy with the punch I made. I called it "blood punch" and it was SO easy to make and a HUGE crowd pleaser. Blood Punch 1 bottle Blood Orange Italian Soda (available at Trader Joe's) 1 bottle champagne 2/3 cups white rum I was making ice cubes, and decided to add some red food coloring to enhance the "bloodiness" of the punch. Not only were there deep red cubes floating in the punch, but as the ice melted, the punch got deeper and deeper red.

We had a big costume party like this in my last year of college. We had a keg and some random punch, but what I really loved that night was something my roommate whipped up last minute. She went out to the store and bought a bottle of brandy and some apple cider. She mixed them together, warmed it on the stove, and we kept it simmering all night. Not only was it delicious (and I don't usually drink brandy), but it also gave the whole place a really great, Halloween-y/fall smell. It was a huge hit with everyone, and something I'll definitely do if I ever throw another party like that!

For my halloween parties I place this in the punch: Fill a plastic glove (like the medical ones) with water and drops of food dye, freeze overnight, and you have a frozen glowing green, pink etc hand in your punch!
