Chill the ingredients prior to serving. Add all ingredients to a punch bowl and stir. Garnish with dry ice (instructions below) or any of the optional garnishes. For the alcoholic punch variation, you can add the entire bottle of rum or make the spiked servings to order so the bowl works for kids and adults. Ladle out a 1 cup (8 ounce) serving of punch and add 1 to 2 ounces rum.
Do this as close to the time you’ll be serving the drinks as possible, though you can buy the dry ice a few hours in advance. Start by dropping the plastic bag with the dry ice on the ground several times to allow it break into large chunks. Remember never to touch the dry ice with your bare hands! Put on goggles and gloves. Use a chisel to break the dry ice into smaller pieces using a screwdriver or ice pick. The ideal size is 4-inch to 5-inch chunks. Wrap the small chunks in a towel and place them in a cooler with the top off until you’re ready to serve the drinks. Do not place the dry ice in the freezer.
Using tongs (do not touch the dry ice!), add a 1/2-inch to 1-inch chunk of dry ice to the punch bowl, which will sink to the bottom and immediately make a smoking effect. The smoking will last 5 to 10 minutes. Do not drink the dry ice! For kids, ladle out punch by skimming off the top. If you’d like you can ladle out a chunk of dry ice into a glass for adults, but wait until the cube disappears before enjoying your drink (or you can take sips with the dry ice in the bottom).
