Witch’s Brew Witch’s Brew

Difficulty: Easy

Ingredients Add to grocery list

4 cups apple cider
1 cup pomegranate juice
1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger
Juice of 1 lemon, about 3 tablespoons
1 block of dry ice
1 large cast iron dutch oven
1 large metal bowl (which can easily fit inside the dutch oven)
Chilled glass mugs





Add the apple cider, pomegranate juice, grated ginger, and lemon juice together in a pitcher.

Wearing gloves and using a hammer, smash the dry ice into large chunks. Place a few in the bottom of the dutch oven and add water to cover. Place the metal bowl inside the dutch oven and pour in the brew. Use a ladle to fill the mugs for your guests.

COOKS NOTES & SAFETY TIPS: Use a metal bowl to fit inside the dutch oven because glass can shatter from the extreme low temperature of the dry ice. It is also advisable to wear gloves to protect your hands when using dry ice.
