Devilishly Delicious Brandy Punch Adds Kick To Halloween Party

GUERNEVILLE (RUSSIAN RIVER VALLEY), Calif., Oct. 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Adults love Halloween and for good reason – it's an opportunity to dress up in costumes and party.  Whether your adult Halloween bash is a small ghoulish get-together or a big scary spooktacular, the fun should include frightening decorations (orange and black, spider webs, etc.), eerie edibles ("bone" appétit), macabre music ("Monster Mash," anyone?) and of course, devilishly delicious libations. For that last element, Satan's Spooky Punch is the perfect refreshment – fruity, crisp and thanks to Korbel Brandy, with a bit of kick. The recipe below is easy to prepare and will serve a medium-sized party.



Preparation time – 1 hour
Serves 10

1 cup orange Curacao
½ oz. grenadine
½ cup orange juice
¾ cup superfine sugar
4 cups Korbel California Brandy
1 liter soda water
Lemon slices

Mix the Curacao, grenadine and fruit juice. Test for sweetness and stir in sugar to taste (which probably won't require the entire amount) until it has fully dissolved. Add brandy and allow mixture to rest one hour in a cool location. Just before the party starts, pour mixture into a punch bowl over a large chunk of ice and add the soda water. Garnish with lemon slices.

Korbel has produced award-winning California brandy since 1889 and – unique among United States producers – controls production from grape to bottle. Handcrafted in small batches, Korbel Brandy is aged to perfection in premium fire-toasted oak barrels to achieve golden amber color, generous butterscotch aroma and extra smooth taste.
