How to Use Dry Ice for Halloween Party Drinks
It’s never too early to start planning your next spectacular Halloween party. A party would not be complete without refreshments, and dry ice drinks are the way to go for this fantastical holiday. It is possible to create carbonated beverages with dry ice, but creating a potion of Halloween punch is just as easy and highly effective.
Find Two Containers
You can start the preparations for your brew by collecting one large punch bowl and a smaller punch bowl to fit inside. Next, you can decide what kind of punch or drink you want to serve.
Pick a Punch Recipe or Two
Don’t limit yourself in this decision. With countless recipes at your fingertips, you can serve anything to suit the style of your Halloween party. For example, you can create a dark punch with a powdered grape mix, or you can make a “poisoned” apple cider with a combination of different juices, cider, and ginger ale. You can even add some vodka or rum if your party is meant for adults. Just be sure to have non-alcoholic drinks available as well with labels, so everyone’s tastes can be satisfied.
Find Dry Ice
You will not want to get any dry ice until the day of the party. Dry ice will sublimate about 5 to 10 pounds every 24 hours, so you will want to buy accordingly. You can likely find dry ice at your local grocery store. If you go out to get it, you’ll need to come prepared with an insulated cooler to carry it home. Crack the windows to keep the car ventilated. While you want to keep the dry ice as insulated as possible, you must not store it in an airtight container or space. To make life easier, Dry Ice Corporation can deliver the amount of dry ice you need right to your door when you order online.
Create Foggy Punch
Now for the best part: making the Halloween party drink. Place the smaller bowl inside the larger one. Into the smaller bowl, pour the punch of your choice. Next, with some heavy gloves or metal tongs, place your pieces of dry ice around in the larger bowl. Pour warm water over the dry ice, and the magic will begin.
