Halloween Smoothies with Pumpkin Straws

Don’t leave the kids out at your next Halloween soiree. On a night all about sugar, sneak in these healthy banana-mango smoothies for a sweet treat that you can feel good about. Top off the delicious juice with a festive pumpkin straw to keep with the holiday.

Using double-stick tape, attach the straw close to the staple, leaving a green stem peeking out above the paper pumpkin.

Monster Mash Slush

05

This monstrously flavorful slush is just dripping with spooky character. The tequila-laced frozen mixture of melon and orange takes on the look of a mad scientist’s latest experiment when it’s doused in bubbling lemon-lime soft drink and drizzled with bloodred grenadine. Black decorating sugar rims the glass with ominous effect.

Ghostly Spirits

White chocolate apparitions haunt this chilling beverage. The spirited adults-only potion is shaken with ice to blend the vodka, white chocolate liqueur, milk, and whipping cream. Topped with a spritz of whipped cream and the ghostly garnish, the taste will haunt your party guests’ dreams.

Boozy Blood Bath

This creepy cocktail shimmers with the color of blood. Bold flavors — maple, Concord grape juice, and whiskey — infuse this rich and flavorful drink. Serve the cocktail in old-style Champagne glasses garnished with skewered grapes for a beverage that will delight all the vampires on your Halloween-party guest list.

Green lemonade is both refreshing and wickedly appropriate for the Halloween holiday. Give an adult edge to these ghoulish drinks by adding vodka.

Blood-Rimmed Martinis
