1. Oozy Toxic Punch
Up first is one for everyone…punch! This party pleasing punch from Revel and Glitter is packed with a refreshing kick, and it doesn’t even taste like an alcoholic drink. Well, because it’s not! You can leave it as is (perfect for a kids party) or add some vodka to kick it up a notch. I love the idea of pouring this into a beaker so it looks like a science experiment! Even better, make your Jell-O with vodka and serve in shot glasses or test tubes!
2. Caramel Apple Moscow Mule
Autumn weather and a Carmel Apple Moscow Mule cocktail with Apple Cider, Lime and Ginger beer have my name written all over it. Thanks to Cheryl at Tidy Mom blog. I’m going to be a happy camper. (Literally, because I’m taking this recipe camping!)
I fell in love with Moscow mules a few hot summers ago. As a result, my Moscow mule obsession yielded fresh mint in my garden every summer since. After seeing this Recipe for Apple Cider Moscow Mule I might need to plant some apple trees now!
This one needs a warning label. It packs a punch because it contains 4 different types of alcohol. Now that’s a doozy! Sip responsibly with this one! Doctor it up any which way you like, add a cherry and orange slice or garnish with a spider ring for spook factor.
Can you tell I love the décor portion of the drinks? Isn’t decorating the best part anyway? Well, besides the drinking part of course!
4. Cranberry is the New Black: Cocktail
Did you know they made black vodka? Yup! If you can’t find it at your local liquor store go ahead and add a few drops of black food coloring to make this upgraded vodka cranberry a chic and spooky-looking drink.
This cocktail would look great at a black + white themed Halloween party!
5. Forbidden Forest Test Tube Shots
I cannot think of a more perfect shot to have displayed at your Halloween party! Go on and get out your kid’s science experiment kit and put those test tubes to good use! Kiddddiiiinnnggg…..but not really! Seriously though, you need to make these for your guests.
6. The Red Woman Cocktail
You had me at Game of Thrones and Fireball. This GOT inspired cocktail is named after the Red Woman. After all “The night is dark and full of terrors” quote seems pretty fitting for a Halloween drink, am I right? I personally love anything with Fireball whiskey, and this is such an awesome looking drink!
7. Bloody Mary with Mary's Severed Fingers
These look pretty gruesome, but that’s the whole point! Spruce up that classic Bloody Mary and add a sliced hot dog with food coloring for a dramatic and creepy looking drink that would be a HUGE hit at your next Halloween bash! Creative and creepy!
8. Pumpkin Pie Shots
These Pumpkin Pie shots are the perfect dessert shot. If you love RumChata, these are going to be your favorites! You are going to want to add these to the adult dessert table. Remember, what happens at the Halloween Party, stays at the Halloween party!
9. Poisoned Apple Jell-O Shot Syringes
This is the best time of year to have a fall-tasting syringe themed shot! These shots go down way to0 easy and are the perfect shot for your Halloween bash. This one is probably one of my favorites because it’s the perfect single-serving shot.
10. River Water
Are you more of a beer drinker? Then this Beer Cocktail is for you and your guests! It’s a smooth and delicious drink that is perfectly accented with a gummy worm and orange slice. The blue hue makes it a neat Halloween “Beer-tail” drink. This would also be a great punch with gummy worms floating and hanging off the side!
11. Burning Orchard
Feel the burn of the Burning Orchard fall whiskey cocktail. Made with two types of whiskey. One being my favorite Cinnamon Fireball Whiskey. You’ll be sipping on this fall-inspired cinnamon apple whiskey cocktail from September to December. A strong cocktail mix fit for a chilly Halloween Party. Add glow in the dark reusable floating eyeball ice cubes for an extra CHILL in this Burning Orchard Cocktail! Get the full recipe and directions right here on Listotic!
12. Hallo-WINE Sangria
This Hallo-WINE inspired Sangria is perfect after a night of trick-or-treating with the kids or for your Halloween themed get together. This is a classic and is the perfect festive drink to have available in a punch bowl. Add a few creepy hands to your Halloween punch bowl by filling a surgical glove with ice and freezing it like the one below.
Spooky Hand Ice Cubes
- For the hands, fill the food safe glove 3/4 full with water (or use juice so you don't water down your punch). Tie them like a balloon, or twist the end and use a strong clamp to keep it closed and lay as flat as possible in the freezer (possibly on a tray).
- When frozen solid, take them out of the freezer and very gently cut the gloves off using small scissors or knife. Be careful not to break the fingers!
- Add them to the punch just before your guests arrive.
