Blood Red Halloween Punch


Prosecco, orange liqueur, pomegranate juice, and ginger combine for a delightful and refreshing Halloween party drink that’s creepy only in color. Garnish with grapefruit slices and fresh rosemary for a flavorful and pretty touch.

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.

Blood Orange Bourbon


For frighteningly delicious drink, try this blood orange cocktail. A short ingredient list means it’s easy to whip up, and the natural coloring of blood oranges make it on-theme for Halloween. It’s sophistication with only a tiny touch of scary.

Monster Mash Slush


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.

Ghost Punch


This bubbly punch with creamy ghost ice cubes tastes delicious and looks great on a Halloween beverage table. Ghouls and goblins alike will love the fruity flavors.

Eyeball Ice Punch


Guests will feel like they’re being watched when helping themselves to a glass of this punch — a creepy eyeball ice ring floats inside. But with fruity ingredients, the eye will add a chill — and flavor — to your Halloween punch.

Green “Batini”


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


Startle your Halloween guests with this wicked brew. White chocolate, coconut, cream, rum, and vodka make a tasty martini, while red cake gel around the rim adds just the right amount of fright. For younger goblins, substitute lemonade or lemon-lime soda.
