Halloween is the perfect excuse to dress up and also to throw an epic party! A party would not be complete without food and drinks to tie in with the Halloween theme. Cocktails are great drinks to have any party as they have the kick of flavor and pretty colors that are always a crowd favorite. But if you’re not much of a drinker or your party includes some kids, here is our list of booze-free Halloween cocktails which are perfect for anyone!
1. Gummy Worm Punch
This bright green drink with gummy worms will definitely grab everyone’s attention and is a must-have Halloween cocktail for your epic party! To make this drink, all you’ll need are three ingredients: Hawaiian Punch Green Berry Bush, lemon-lime soda and gummy worms. Begin by filling up a muffin tin with two gummy worms each and then pour the Hawaiian Punch over the gummy worms so that it covers them.
Put the muffin tin in the freezer for about 2-3 hours and when you take them out, they should look like frozen discs. Fill up a cup with 3/4 or Hawaiian Punch and 1/4 of lemon-lime soda and then drop a disc (or two depending on how big the cup is) so that it’ll sink to the bottom before emerging to the top with the gummy worms spilling over.
2. Magic Potion Punch
This next Halloween cocktail will be a perfect drink to have at your party. It definitely has the eerie look and will be a crowd favorite! This drink is like something you’d make out of a chemistry lab except you can drink it! Start off by grabbing a cup and adding about 1/8 of lemonade, 1/8 grape juice and then fill the rest of the cup with lemon-lime soda. The magic part of this magic potion punch is when you add a teaspoon of Jell-O in powder form, the drink starts to fizz and bubble! You’ll definitely impress your party guests when you make this party drink!
3. Blood Orange Martini
For this drink, all you’ll need is 5 parts Q Club Soda, 1 part blood orange syrup and lime. Begin by making the blood orange syrup. Mix equal parts strained or squeezed blood orange juice with sugar in a blender until everything is mixed together well. Rub the inside of your glass with a herb such as mint and then combine all ingredients together. Finish the drink off with a squeeze of lime. This is a simple yet perfect drink that fits with the Halloween theme, this tasty drink has plenty of fruity flavors!
4. Monster Gut Punch
This is one of those booze-free Halloween cocktails that may not look appealing but is simply delicious! Just like the gummy worm punch (number 1 in this article), this cocktail will have your party guests in awe. This has a fruity kick to it and all you’ll need is fruit punch, ice cream, and 7UP but if you prefer a different taste, you can switch up the ingredients to suit your taste!
It looks like a poison mixture but it is definitely edible! Get a scoop of raspberry sherbert and place it at the bottom of your cup. Next, pour a scoop of fruit punch over the sherbert. Finish it off by adding 7UP to the mixture. Feel free to add some gummy worms or creepy-crawly sweets for decoration!
5. Witch’s Brew Punch
This red looking Halloween cocktail is a great addition to your array of drinks at your party. With this drink looking like the color of blood, it fits right in with the Halloween theme. To make this witch’s brew, you’ll need quite a few ingredients to bring out all that flavor:
- 6 whole cloves
- 2 x 3-inch cinnamon sticks
- 1 x 2-inch piece of fresh ginger (peeled and thinly sliced)
- 1/3 cup of water
- 1/3 cup of sugar
- 1 x 25 1/4-oz bottle of sparkling cider
- 1 x 32oz bottle cranberry cocktail
- 1-liter bottle club soda
- some hand-shaped ice blocks
Mix the cloves, cinnamon sticks, ginger, orange peel, water, and sugar in a small saucepan. Heat it over medium heat until the sugar dissolves and then let it simmer for a few minutes. Allow the mixture to steep for an hour and then strain it through a fine sieve and chill the syrup. Once this is done, combine the syrup with remaining liquid ingredients in a punch bowl. Add ice and add anything else such as sweets if you want to add some decoration!
6. Trick Or Treat Halloween Punch
This is a colorful and funky Halloween cocktail that will make your party guests curious! To make this colorful concoction you’ll need two main ingredients: ice and equal amounts of 3 different colored beverages with various sugar amounts. Go for three bright and bold colors that will make unusual and colorful combinations!
Fill a glass or punch bowl with ice to the very top. Check which one of your drinks have the highest sugar content and tip the glass or punch bowl to the side and pour this one in first. Fill it up to about 1/3 full and then do the same with the next drink that has the highest sugar content up until it is 2/3 full. Do the same with the final drink and when you’re done, you’ll have a multi-colored and flavorsome drink!
7. Ocean Blue Goblet
Halloween cocktails don’t always have to be gory. Rather than this Halloween cocktail being gory, it is a pretty and cool cocktail that will probably gain attention for its color at first. A sweet and fruity drink, this is for those that like a lot of flavors. To make this drink, you’ll need 3 oz Torani Blue Raspberry Syrup, 9.5 oz sour mix and 9.5 oz lemon-lime soda. Begin by combining all the ingredients in a goblet or a glass if you don’t have a goblet. For the finishing touch, add gummy sharks inside.
