4  cups  cranberry juice cocktail
1  cup  candied ginger root, chopped
3  medium  oranges
12  ounces  apple juice, frozen concentrate, thawed
6  ounces  limeade, frozen concentrate, thawed
2  cups  seedless grapes
4  cups  water
64  ounces  ginger ale, (1/2 gal)
1  pound  dry ice, up to 2 pounds

1. In a 1 to 2 quart pan, bring 1 cup of cranberry juice and candied ginger to a boil over high heat. Boil, uncovered, about 2 minutes, set aside.

2. With a vegetable peeler, pare peel (colored part only) from oranges; cut peel into thin 2-inch-long worms; or use an Oriental shredder to make long shreds. Add orange peel to cranberry mixture. Cover and chill at least 4 hours or as long as overnight.

3. Juice oranges; put juice in a 6 to 8 quart pan or heavy bowl. Stir in cranberry-ginger mixture, the 3 cups cranberry juice, apple concentrate, limeade, grapes and water. If made ahead, cover and chill up to 2 hours. Add ginger ale and about a 1 pound piece of dry ice (DO NOT put small pieces in punch or cups); ice should smolder at least 30 minutes. Ladle into cups. Add any remaining ice when bubbling ceases.

A smoking cauldron of punch made with grapes and orange peel masquerading as eyeballs and worms. A SERIOUS CAUTION: never touch dry ice; use tongs to handle. Makes 5 quarts; allow about 1-1/2 cups for a serving.
