Print Email

Adapted from Williams-Sonoma

3 cups cranberry-raspberry juice blend
3 cups sparkling water
1 cup thawed frozen strawberries and raspberries, pureed
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 cup of vodka (optional)
Crushed Ice
Spider Ice Cubes

Fill an ice tray with water and place washed plastic spiders into each cube. Have the spider coming out of the ice, kind of like 3-D. 

Puree strawberries (or raspberries) with granulated sugar.

In a pitcher or a punch bowl combine cranberry-raspberry juice, sparkling water and pureed fruit mixture.

Place crushed ice in glasses and fill up with punch.  Add a couple cubes of the spider ice to each glass.
