Toxic Waste Punch Recipe


  • 1 can of pineapple juice
  • 2 liter bottle Mountain Dew
  • 1 liter Fresca (can substitute Sprite too)
  • ½ carton lime sherbet
  • 1 bag frozen berries
  • Misc. plastic body parts


Pour in chilled juice and sodas into a punch bowl. Right before serving the punch toss in the frozen berries and scoop in the sherbet. Toss in body parts. (Susan boiled hot water and washed the plastic pieces for about 5 minutes the day before.)

Adjust the recipe depending on the size of your punch bowl and the number of guests. Susan doubled the recipe to serve a crowd of over 40 and they drank it all. Add a jelly face like the one in the photos on her blog!
