Wonderful recipes,that I will have to try. Do you have any more unspirited cocktail recipes. I'm thinking of making one of these in a punch bowl. Have you done that? I'm pretty sure that would be really fun. I'll probably make it with some fake skeleton bones but I'm not sure if I can get one's that are food safe.

All of my cocktail recipes contain alcohol. I have not tried them in a punch bowl, but they can all be multiplied for larger amounts that will work in one.
