Daddy Charles's Spooley


"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 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 r...

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!

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.
