True Blood Punch

October is in full swing, and it is time to plan for one of our favorite holidays. No, it is not quite time for Thanksgiving..but Halloween is almost here, so it’s time to get the party started! We love getting all dressed up and enjoying a night full of creepy tunes, pumpkins and friends. We have created a wonderful bloody drink to serve at your next spooktacular soiree! This punch is not too potent, so it’s great to drink all night long. If desired, you can add a shot of your favorite vodka to your glass to give it an extra kick. This fun and festive concoction is loaded with antioxidant goodness from cherries and pomegranates. The superfood powers of chia seeds add an extra dose of Omega 3’s, protein and a boost of energy to keep you partying all night long! The Gut Goo really gives this bloody beverage the right flavor and texture to liven up your party.

If you are throwing this party for kids, you can replace the champagne with a bottle of club soda or more cider (although cider will sweeten the punch considerably). Kids will have such a great time slurping down the slimy chias, they won’t even know they are good for them. Get ready to do the Monster Mash with this screaming good True Blood Punch!
