Cran-Cherry Plasma Transfusion
Halloween Fun!
1 15oz. can fruit cocktail
1 14 1/2oz. can dark, sweet cherries
2 cups cranberry juice cocktail

For transfusion bags:
6 zipper-lock sandwich bags
6 straws, twisted or flexible
6 shower curtain rings


Hook up to some fun with these fanciful macabre cocktails. The punch is a delicious thirst-quencher of fruit, infusing Halloween partygoers with a nutritious alternative to sweetened soft drinks. But beware, only ghouls could help but be infected with a fatal case of giggles as they sip refreshments from transfusion sacks made simply from zipper-lock bags, twisty straws and curtain rings.

Puree the fruit cocktail and cherries, with their liquids, in a blender or food processor until smooth.

Mix in the cranberry juice cocktail and refrigerate until chilled.

To prepare the transfusion bags, punch a hole with a hole-punch in the corner of one layer of a zipper-lock sandwich bag just below the zipper. Insert a twisty straw or flexible straw in the hole and punch another hole in the same corner of the bag through both layers, just above the zipper. Thread a shower curtain ring through that hole. Repeat with remaining bags, straws and shower curtain rings.

To serve, pour 1 cup of the cranberry-cherry mixture into each bag and seal. Hang by the shower curtain rings on hooks. Guests can hold their drink by the ring and sip through the straw.
