We're so excited to have this spooky recipe from our guest food blogger Denise Favela, HechoVistoComido!
Paletas are not just for the summer. They can be enjoyed all year long, especially when used in drinks and cocktails. For our spooky get-togethers, I decided to make Mexican Monster Punch by using La Michoacana’s Lime Paletas.
This punch was inspired by my favorite cocktail, Midori Sour and it was a hit! Using my favorite lime paletas, I created the perfect sweet and sour punch for you and your guests to enjoy during this spooky season.
6 Lime paletas (slightly melted)
2 Cups of pineapple juice (chilled)
½ Midori (chilled)
¼ Cup of Vodka (optional)
1 Liter of Ginger Ale
4 Cups of ice
Start by adding then proceed to add chilled pineapple juice and lime paletas, and mix. Then add Midori, vodka, and ginger ale. Lightly mix and serve. Salud!
