Just some cool recipes I've found.  What kinds of brew's do you make?

Witches' Brew / Stephanie Foley

Punch is one of the easiest ways to set the Halloween mood—all you need is a cauldron, perhaps, or a pointy black hat and ice block "hands."Not every blend of fruit juices takes well to the with-or-without option of alcohol, but the combination of sparkling cider and cranberry juice cocktail, subtly enhanced with a spice syrup, both support an optional dose of dark rum.

Makes about 3 quarts
15 min
1 1/2 hr (includes steeping)


    • 2 (3-inch) cinnamon sticks
    • 5 whole cloves
    • 3 tablespoons finely chopped peeled ginger
    • 1/3 cup water
    • 1/3 cup sugar
    • 1 (25 1/4-ounce) bottle sparkling cider (about 3 1/4 cups), chilled
    • 4 cups cranberry juice cocktail, chilled
    • 1 (1-liter) bottle club soda or seltzer, chilled
    • 1 cup dark rum (optional)
    • Ice blocks in any shape (see cooks' note, below)

        1. Bring cinnamon sticks, cloves, ginger, water, and sugar to a boil in a small heavy saucepan, stirring until sugar has dissolved, then simmer, covered, 5 minutes. Remove from heat and let steep, uncovered, 1 hour.
        2. Strain through a fine-mesh sieve into a bowl, discarding solids, then chill until cold.
        3. Combine all remaining ingredients, except ice, with syrup in a punch bowl. Add ice before serving.
      Cooks' notes:
      •To make hand-shaped ice, fill powder-free, latex-free rubber gloves with water and tie wrist end securely, then freeze.
      Bubbling and Bloody Witch’s Brew
      •Syrup can be made 1 week ahead and chilled with spices. Strain before using.

      A deliciously spooky way to toast Halloween, our Bubbling and Bloody Witch's Brew cocktail is made with club soda, rum, grenadine and an ice-cube-sized chunk of dry ice.
