64 ounces apple cider or apple juice
2 liters ginger ale or to spike it 1 liter ginger ale, and 1 750 ml bottle of aged Rum.
Two 4-5 inch chunks of dry ice
Garnishes : candy eyeballs, plastic spiders, gummy worms, etc.

Instructions

Chill the ingredients a couple of hours before serving. Add all of the ingredients into a big punch bowl. Garnish with either dry ice or the suggested garnishes.

A Pumpkin Martini is a creamy and flavorful drink! This is an ideal cocktail for impressing your friends at your party. Also great for any Fall time activities or parties!
