How do you make dry ice punch?

Dry ice punch is a fun way of making an impressive spooky Halloween punch. The dry ice releases a spooky white fog and adds to the Halloween atmosphere.

Check with local stores first to make sure:

  1. That they carry dry ice
  2. That they will have a supply for Halloween. You may have to place an order due to the higher demand during the Halloween season.

It’s important to handle dry ice safely. Always ask for directions from the dry ice supplier.

  • Dry ice should never be touched with bare hands or placed in the mouth. You should always protect your hands and eyes when handling dry ice. Use a rubber glove or tongs to handle dry ice.
  • Only use dry ice in a well-ventilated area. Dry ice produces CO2 and it can have toxic effects when breathed in high concentrations.
  • To be careful in serving a punch, dry ice should never be placed in a punch or drink directly.

You can still create a dry ice punch by placing the dry ice in a large bowl or cauldron and then placing the Halloween punch in a smaller punch bowl set in the bowl with dry ice. This allows the fog to drift up and around the punch bowl while minimizing the risk of touching or consuming the dry ice.

Place the smaller punch bowl inside the larger bowl or cauldron. You want to have space between the two bowls on the sides. Place pieces of dry ice in the space between the two bowls. Pour boiling water or very hot water on top of the dry ice and watch the fog appear. You can add a little dry ice after a bit to keep the fog going strong.

  • To make this witches brew more orange flavored, use orange sherbet in place of vanilla ice cream.
  • Create a green witch’s brew drink by substituting pineapple juice for the pinot grigio, lime sherbert for the ice cream and add green food coloring.
  • To create a red Halloween punch, substitute cranberry juice for the orange soda.
  • For more of a fall flavor, you can substitute apple cider for the orange soda.
  • Add gummy worms to the edge of glasses or the punch bowl.
  • You can mix all the ingredients except the ice cream in a large pitcher. Then easily make this punch recipe in individual service size Halloween drinks as needed.
