A Spooky Halloween Punch Recipe to Scare Your Party Guests!

Dragon Egg Soup, starring cactus pear, rambutan, and longans, is the perfect beverage for your Halloween party. Exotic fruits give this Halloween punch an otherworldly taste and appearance that is equal parts spooky and inviting.

This punch is a really fun way to encourage your kids to try out new fruits. Kids are much more likely to try foods that have fun names or are served in a silly way. After Halloween is over, you might be surprised to find your kiddos requesting rambutans or longans at the grocery store!

PRODUCE MOM TIP: The more rambutans and longans you use, the spookier the effect!
