Halloween Punch Recipe.... Try this terrifyingly tasty Halloween recipe for a non alcoholic Punch at your party:
Vampire’s bloody brew recipe
1 litre cranberry juice
1 litre lemonade
Grenadine or Strawberry flavoured syrup
Place strawberries in a punch bowl (or try a cauldron for a more spooky effect, no mother-in-law jokes please...). Add cranberry juice. Stir. Pour in the lemonade. Pour in grenadine/ strawberry syrup. Do not stir to give a blood like effect.
Perhaps even get your hair dyed for Halloween. Do you fancy bold and bright colours in a dreary Autumn? If so, have a look at thebestof Shrewsbury hairdressers. One of them can surely provide funky colours - this could be the perfect time to take the colour plunge!
