Holding a party for little your pumpkins, ghosts or ghouls this Halloween? We've got lots of inspiration to keep the little'uns happy, from freaky feet to witches wands to our own £5 Frankenstein cake.

However here's also lots of ways for adults to join in the fun, too. You can cater for any accompanying (and non-driving) guests with this pumpkin spice punch. 

Or, simply make it without the alcohol to create a refreshing drink that everyone can enjoy. 

SERVES 2             
TAKES 30 minutes
ALCOHOL UNITS PER GLASS 0.9

Ingredients
150g pumpkin
150ml cloudy apple juice
1/4 tsp cinnamon
Juice from 1/2 a lemon
1 tsp clear honey
50ml spiced rum
Cinnamon stick (for decoration)

Method

1. Cut 150g pumpkin into small cubes and cook in a pan of boiling water for 15-20 mins. Drain, leave to dry, then set aside until cool. 
2. Blend with ¼ tsp cinnamon, 150ml cloudy apple juice, the juice of ½ lemon, 1 tsp clear honey and 50ml spiced rum.
