Witch’s Brew

By Paula Deen


Difficulty: Hard

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cook time: 10 minutes

Servings: 10



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


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

Wearing gloves and protective eyewear 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, and protective eyewear for your eyes.
