Panic eyeball punch mocktail

9 September 2021

This mocktail is perfect for both kids and adults who want to get into the spooky spirit of Halloween.

Nutritional highlights

This alcohol free mocktail not only tastes great and makes for a scary sight at the party table, it also provides a range of nutrients. One serving of punch will provide about 25% of your daily vitamin C (if you eat the ‘eyeballs’). Vitamin C can help support healthy skin and proper wound healing. This is a refreshing drink and due to it being alcohol free means it also helps keep us hydrated as we need about 2L of water a day and this will help contribute to that. 

Ingredients list

(Makes 15 servings)
Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: N/A

  • 425g lychees
  • 225g cocktail cherries
  • 15 raisins
  • 1 litre of blueberry or blackberry juice, chilled
  • 1 litre of cranberry or cherry juice, chilled
  • 1 litre of sparkling water, chilled

Method

Drain the lychees and remove stone if necessary (remove skin and stone if fresh) and cocktail cherries, reserve the juices in a jug.

Push a raisin into one end of each cherry, then put the cherry into a lychee to make ‘eyeballs’.

Tip all of the juices, plus the lychee and cherry juices into a punch bowl with the ‘eyeballs’. Top up with the sparkling water if using ice cubes.

Healthy swaps/tips

  • Want to make it extra spooky? Grab a pair of powder free gloves, fill with water and freeze overnight to make ice cube hands to keep your punch cool.
