  • Summary

    Punch is one of the easiest ways to set the Halloween mood—all you need is a cauldron, perhaps, or a pointy black hat and ice block "hands."Not every blend of fruit juices takes well to the with-or-without option of alcohol, but the combination of sparkling cider and cranberry juice cocktail, subtly enhanced with a spice syrup, both support an optional dose of dark rum.

    Ingredients

    • 2 (3-inch) cinnamon sticks
    • 5 whole cloves
    • 3 tablespoons finely chopped peeled ginger
    • 1/3 cup water
    • 1/3 cup sugar
    • 1 (25 1/4-ounce) bottle sparkling cider (about 3 1/4 cups), chilled
    • 4 cups cranberry juice cocktail, chilled
    • 1 (1-liter) bottle club soda or seltzer, chilled
    • 1 cup dark rum (optional)
    • Ice blocks in any shape (see cooks' note, below)
