Daddy Charles's Spooley

Recipe by  

"This alcoholic fruit punch was concocted by my dad in the 60's. You'd never think that it would be good looking at the ingredients, but somehow you can't really taste the alcohol. Be careful though, stand up after two glasses and suddenly the floor looks all, well, spooley!"

This is very good! It tastes like a really good sangria! I made this by the glass using 2oz. Rum, 2oz. dry red wine, 4oz. red fruit punch, 3 oz. club soda, 1/2 tsp. fresh lime juice, 1/2 tsp fresh lemon juice...and I served it in a wine glass instead of a "red plastic cup"! After drinking a couple of these you will feel "loopey" we call it! It really does sneak up on you, so be careful!

This was SO disappointing. I added lots more fresh lemon, and orange juice, along with more wine and lemon-lime soda. It was still marginal.

This punch is VERY strong. I had to add an extra jug of cranberry juice to make it at least not flamable! My guests definately enjoyed it once I added the cranberry though. A friend of mine poured herself a glass before I added the cranberry and you could smell the alcohol from 5 feet away...

This is definitely not for anyone who can't hold their liquor. Adding cranberry juice enhances the drink immensely.

Very SMOOTH and satisfying... Meaning that the alcohol canNOT be tasted... Excellent drink!! It'll make you "spooley", alright!!

We tried this punch for Christmas party for our neighbors. For the rum we used Bacardi Gold 40% alcohol and not the 151 proof which is 75% alcohol. I believe there is no need to use the high potent rum. It is a fun punch to drink that does give you that buzz early on. It became very popular at our little gathering. I still can't imagine going with a higher proof rum

This stuff was great! In anticipation of being snowed in this weekend, I thought this would be fun to make since we would not be going anywhere. My husband and I both LOVED it! It goes down really easy, so you need to be careful since it is quite potent. I made it exactly as the recipe said and wouldn't change a thing. We are both looking forward to making it on a hot summer day, but it made our snow bound weekend much more tolerable!

SPOOLEY IS COOLEY! Made this punch for New Year's Eve, and it's our new year-round favorite. We used Meyer's Rum--can't even imagine the wallop it would pack with a 151 rum!
