Halloween Drinks for the Whole Family
For kids (of any age), you can start with a bag of ice. Strategically drop some liquid food coloring over the ice in the bag and refreeze. Add your colored ice to any clear drink to add color and fun to a glass.
Add a bloody on the bottom look to any clear drink, (lemon-lime soda, white cherry Gatorade, etc…), fill your cup with crushed or cubed ice, pour in the desired drink then slowly pour grenadine over the ice and let it settle in the bottom. It is heavier than most drinks, so it settles on the bottom for a spooky bloody look. Add it to any drink for that effect. Grenadine is non-alcoholic.
For a spooky fog drink, add some gummy worms to a green sports drink or Kool-aid and top with just a few small pieces of dry ice. The kids will be amazed at their foggy drinks. Follow safety guidelines when using dry ice.
A layered Halloween punch bowl will also be a hit. This recipe from spendwithpennies.com layers drinks by sugar content in a punch bowl. Using ice cubes in the bowl to pour the drinks over, helps to create the layered effect.
Adult Beverage Options
For adults, the options are tasty!
The Beetlejuice Cocktail from cosmopolitan.com goes perfect over ice. It presents as a layered cocktail. Made with vodka, melon liqueur, raspberry liqueur, blue curacao with some sweet and sour. Topped off with black and white striped straws.
The Hornitos Black Cauldron from audacy.com lives up to its spooky name. Made with Hornitos black barrel tequila, lemon juice, agave syrup, sage simple syrup, angostura bitters and activated charcoal in an ice-filled cocktail shaker, you will be shaking in your boots to try one.
The Jack-O-Lantern cocktail comes in many forms but one stands out as the favorite. In a cocktail shaker filled with ice, cognac, brandy-based orange liqueur, orange juice and ginger ale are mixed to make a tasty orange cocktail. An orange wheel with a twist of lime on top gives this beverage that pumpkin look.
