recipe number 10

Mystic Punch
4  1 pint bottle cranberry juice / the juice from 2 - 14 ounce cans of peaches (about 2 1/2 cups)
1 cup fresh lime juice (about 8 limes) /2 cups orange juice/1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/4 cup white rum (optional)
1/2 pound dry ice in 3 or 4 pieces (no shavings) *
Prior to pouring ingredients into punch bowl prepare bowl for dry ice by placing a small casserole in the bottom of punch bowl. this is to prevent puncbowl from cracking.
Combine cranberry juice,juice from peaches, lime juice, orange juice, nutmeg and rum in punch bowl.
Place dry ice into center of bowl 1 piece at a time. Do this just before serving. When it stops smoking add another piece of dry ice. Its a good idea to let one person do the serving to make sure no one gets any of the dry ice in their cups.
*purchase dry ice on day of party. one-half pound of dry ice will "smoke" and bubble for about 1 hour.
