Dragon’s Blood Cocktail Punch Recipe: Sweet Adult Swag

In The Imbibery and Distillery by Christine McKellar

Trick or treat, drink or eat: You may want to eat something loaded with carbs or protein to counter the sugary content in this Dragon’s Blood Cocktail Punch recipe. But it presents well in a bowl with candy bats and dry ice as holiday props: it also serves as an adult alternative to several pounds of sweet Halloween swag.
