    Serves: 16 

    • rubber glove
    • 300g raspberries or strawberries, sliced
    • 2 1/2 cups (600ml) cranberry, or apple and blackcurrant juice
    • 1 sachet (3 teaspoons) gelatine
    • 2 litres ginger ale
    • 2 litres sparkling non-alcoholic apple juice
    • 6 snakes

    Preparation:30min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:40min 

    1. To make the frozen hand: Wash and rinse the outside of a rubber glove. Turn glove inside out and set aside. In a 1 litre measuring jug, combine the berries and juice.
    2. Pour half of this mixture into a small saucepan. Sprinkle the gelatine over and let stand 2 minutes. Warm over low heat, stirring constantly, just until gelatine dissolves. Mix back into the reserved juice and berry mixture in the measuring jug.
    3. Pour the juice and berry mixture into the inverted glove. Gather up the top of the glove and tie securely with string or a rubber band. Freeze until solid, or several days if possible.
    4. To serve: Carefully cut rubber glove away from frozen hand. Place frozen hand, palm side up, leaning against side of a large punch bowl. Pour in ginger ale and sparkling cider. Garnish with snakes.

    I bought the most inexpensive gloves I could find. I didn't realise how short they would be so instead of one giant arm I had two hands. I served this at my Halloween Party and everyone thought it was very festive.  -  29 Sep 2008


    Great idea....made several of them and had them floating in the bowl or hanging onto the edge.  -  29 Sep 2008


    I made this last night for a pre trick or treat party at our house for a group of my kids friends. The taste of the punch was good and very easy to throw together although the hand did not work out for me so I'm only rating this 4 stars. I followed the directions as written and ended up with enough raspberry mixture to fill 2 gloves. I froze them for 2 full days and while I was removing the glove a finger on each hand broke off. The kids thought it was still cool to have the chopped off finger floating in the punch bowl with the hand missing a finger. Very Halloween! I think next time I will just freeze water and make an ice hand. I hope they edit the recipe to indicate "latex free" glove. I used vinyl because you just never know who could have an allergy.  -  01 Nov 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
