What you'll need

  • 3 cups cranberry juice
  • 1-1/2 cups apple juice
  • 1-1/2 cups grape juice
  • 2 cups caffeine-free cola
  • 1 cup frozen strawberries

How to make it

  1. In a large pitcher or punch bowl, combine the cranberry juice, apple juice and grape juice. Stir, then refrigerate until you're ready to serve. At the last possible moment, add the cola, the strawberries and, of course, the Floating Hand of Death.
  2. For the Floating Hand of Death
  3. In a measuring cup or jar, stir a few drops of green food coloring into some water -- not too much, just enough to give it a slightly decomposed tint.
  4. Pour the greenish water into a disposable rubber glove (the stretchy kind -- make sure it's not powder-coated inside) and tie the top securely. Place in the freezer for several hours or overnight.
  5. At serving time, peel the glove off the hand and deposit icy hand in chilled punch. Yum.
