Halloween has become one of the most anticipated holidays around. It is one where adults fondly remember their childhood Halloween days wandering the neighborhoods getting FREE CANDY!

Remember you figured out that you could walk around a get FREE CANDY? A whole sack full? And your parents already knew about it and they were cool?

AMAZING!

But times changed and some bad apples started doing horrible things to the candy and treats and just like that, trick-or-treating became dangerous. 

Celebrating changed, especially for little goblins, and Halloween became more group-oriented and home-based. Competition is high for the best refreshments, most original costumes and activities that rock your Halloween party.

So now, what’s a better way to celebrate than special Halloween party drinks, fun food that looks like ghosts, witches and other semi-spooky party crafts and favors?

Halloween Party Drinks – Family Friendly

Some of these drinks can be cocktails OR non-alcoholic. Make sure to mark well if you decide to make some alcoholic and some not!

Witches Brew:

Any drink is transformed into Witches Brew, even those adult ones with alcohol.

Use any drink mix, add food coloring if desired, and at the last minute add small pieces of dry ice, 2″ – 3″, to fit in a drink glass. It will bubble and smoke, delighting all ages.

If a larger punch bowl is used instead of single-serving glasses, use larger pieces of ice that won’t dissolve as quickly.

Black Death

(Black Lemonade)

This is another easy drink to make that is fun – it is black! 

Do you know about Activated Charcoal? I didn’t either, but I researched it and was surprised to find out that activated charcoal is a health supplement.

Halloween “Black Death” (Black Lemonade)

It is a fairly simple recipe which requires simple ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen. Well, minus the charcoal, that is.

Course Drinks

Ingredients

  • One Lemon juiced
  • One To Two Capsules Of Activated Charcoal
  • Stevia Or Maple Syrup
  • Ice
  • Water

Instructions

  1. Juice the lemon and remove any stray seeds. Add the juice to a 16 ounce glass.
  2. Check the dosage on your activated charcoal before breaking open one to two capsules. Add them to the lemon juice and stir well to mix these two ingredients.
  3. Fill the glass with ice cubes and water, add sweetener as desired.
  4. Garnish with lemon wedge.

Recipe Notes

 

 

PARTY IDEAS: Mix the advised portions of lemon juice and activated charcoal. Add sweetener to the juice mix proportionally, then add water. If serving in a punch bowl, you can add dry ice for a “spooky” effect. You can also substitute club soda for water for a more festive effect.

Vampire Fang Cosmo

Pick up inexpensive vampire fangs at the dollar store. They are a great party favor for adults and children alike.

Ingredients

  • 2 ounces 1/4 cup vodka
  • 1/2 ounce 1 tablespoon Grand Marnier or Cointreau
  • 3/4 ounce 1 tablespoon + 1 1/2 teaspoons WHITE cranberry juice cocktail, see notes
  • Lime wedges
  • 1 small bottle red color liquid sugar-free soft drink concentrate like Capri Sun Kool Aid, etc.s
  • Red rim sugar if desired

Instructions

  1. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice then add vodka, liqueur, white cranberry juice and squeeze of lime wedge. Before disposing, use rest of the lime wedge to wet the rim of a martini glass. Turn the rim in the red rim sugar.
  2. Shake the cocktail shaker for about 30 seconds until well chilled.  Strain carefully into the prepared glass. Add one drop of red beverage concentrate to resemble “vampire blood.” Garnish with open vampire fangs.

Recipe Notes

 

To make this drink family-friendly, just leave out the alcohol and serve a plain cranberry cocktail. You can still use the martini glass and fangs.

Glow-in-the-Dark Voodoo Shots

If these don’t push you over the finish line as “Hostest with the Mostest,” I don’t know what will. It’s a little science experiment  (like most cooking…) – the black light makes quinine in the tonic water “glow.” 

These would be great already prepared and displayed in a dark corner where you can easily fix your blacklight. You can use just a blacklight bulb in a small decor lamp without the shade, if necessary.

Death in the Afternoon Cocktails

Nothing is fancier than a champagne flute on the bar – especially if filled with champagne! This recipe has a little twist – absinthe. Absinthe sure does have a scary reputation, but it is legal and quite safe. Still, after all the movies I have seen about little old Southern ladies serving cocktails in the afternoon, maybe you should take care….
