The Best Witch's Brew 4 Haloween! #recipe #MFRWAuthor, #BlogTour

If you're have a Halloween party - you must make this Witch's Brew. It's not only devilishly delicious but makes an impressive appearance. 

What exactly is a Witch's Brew?

a potent magical concoction supposedly prepared by witches.
a harmful or threatening mixture; diabolical concoction:

A Great Recipe for Witch's Brew:
There are a million versions of this floating around the internet; this is just my particular twist on a classic. I make it with ginger ale, pineapple juice, fresh lemon juice (to keep it from being too sweet) and lime sherbet. The punch is a gorgeous, if slightly repulsive, green color, with chunks of melting sherbet that grossed out and delighted the kids when they were scooping it up.

The REAL genius of the drink, though, is that it’s served in a punch bowl nestled in a cauldron. At the bottom of the cauldron is dry ice that belches steam, making the cauldron smoke just like a real witch’s cauldron. It took a little trial and error to find a bowl + cauldron combo that worked, and to get the right mix of dry ice and water to produce a good smoking effect, but when it works, there is nothing cooler than a cauldron bubbling away!

2 liters ginger ale chilled
4 cups pineapple juice chilled
1/3 cup lemon juice fresh (optional)
1 gallon lime sherbet
1 block dry ice (I used 5 lbs for a 3-hour party)
Large cauldron punch bowl that fit inside cauldron

Break the dry ice into large pieces using a mallet or other tool. Be careful that you use gloves when handling it, since it can cause burns if it comes into contact with your skin. Place some of the dry ice in the bottom of your cauldron. Put the remaining dry ice in a cooler nearby. Pour some hot water on top of the ice so that it starts to smoke.
Place the punch bowl on top of the dry ice inside the cauldron. Combine the ginger ale, pineapple juice, and lemon juice in the punch bowl, and stir to combine. Add scoops of lime sherbet, mix it for a few minutes until the sherbet starts to melt, then serve! Replenish the dry ice and hot water as necessary, to keep the smoke effect going.

Note: dry ice can be harmful if swallowed, so do not put it directly in the punch bowl or beverage cups.

About Comes A Specter

Six months ago, Anya Fleming's ten- year-old son, Willie-boy, found his father hanging in the barn. Traumatized over his father's suicide, the boy hasn't spoken a word since. Now, Willie-boy has come down with a grave, unknown illness and there's only one man who can save him, Sutter Sky, a learned Blackfoot shaman known as Yellow Smoke—a shaman who was once deeply in love with Anya.

But Fate had other plans for Anya and Sutter—she was forced to marry Lewis Fleming, a cruel man who berated her night and day, and brokenhearted Sutter immersed himself in the mystical customs and beliefs of his People and became a shaman
As if Anya didn't have enough to deal with after her husband's death and son's illness, an evil, sinister ghost is terrorizing their ranch. Anya is convinced the spirit is Lewis, who apparently isn't done making her life miserable.
When she turns to Yellow Smoke for help, will he put side his bitterness and save Willie-boy? And can the renowned shaman dispel the powerful ghost from their lives and send him back to Hades?
