The Halloween harvest punch was created by mixologist Victoria D'Amato-Moran. Inside the alluring green brew is an array of fruity flavors, including apple, cranberry, and melon. It's all backed up by two rums. The punch is easy to put together at the last minute and has a delicious taste that should appeal to everyone at your party.
Gather the ingredients.
Pour the Midori, rums, juices, and simple syrup into a punch bowl and mix well.
Garnish with the apple slices, blueberries, and melon balls.
Serve and enjoy!
- As written, the recipe will yield just over 16 4-ounce servings.
- To chill this punch you can add an ice ring or blocks of ice to the bowl or place the punch bowl in an ice bath on the serving table. Alternatively, supply an ice bucket from which guests can pull as many cubes as they like while filling their glass.
- While you can use red cranberry juice, which is more common, it will not allow the melon liqueur to be in control of the punch's color. White cranberry juice is becoming easier to find as more grocers stock it; it actually has a color similar to apple juice.
- When adapting this punch for various serving sizes, make it easy by measuring it in parts. It's very simple because the majority of the ingredients are poured in equal amounts. The melon liqueur, two rums, apple juice, and simple syrup are each 1 part and the cranberry juice is 2 parts. Most volumes will do fine with 1 whole juiced lemon, but you can add more if needed to suit your taste.
- Want to enjoy the punch on your own? You can make it by the pitcher and store it in the refrigerator for a quick pour-and-drink cocktail (it should stay fresh for a few days). Otherwise, pour 1 ounce each of the "1 part" ingredients and 2 ounces of the cranberry juice, resulting in one tall 8-ounce cocktail or two shorter 4-ounce drinks. Shake the ingredients and strain into your glass.
How Strong Is a Halloween Harvest Punch?
The high volume of nonalcoholic ingredients helps this punch stay within a reasonable alcohol content for a party. When made with 80 proof rums, it should weigh in around 13 percent ABV (26 proof), which is like a typical glass of wine.
