Create a fun party punch with this idea from Tanji Patton of Goodtaste TV. (Copyright 2020 by KPRC Click2Houston - All rights reserved.)

Impress your guests with this party trick. Serve sangria wine in a punch bowl with dry ice. It creates a spooky party effect, but be careful when handling the dry ice, and do not touch it directly!!!
