Making the Best Halloween Drinks and Cocktails

Great Halloween drinks and cocktails can turn a boring party into a blast. These party drinks should look and taste fantastic, and most of all they should celebrate the holiday.

 

The best time to come up with ideas for drinks is long before the occasion. Learn the recipes ahead of time, and gather the ingredients before the party for a fun and exciting night.

Types of Halloween Drinks and Cocktails

  • You can make witches' brew punch with your choice of fruit juices and ice cream or sherbet. Bubble it up with ginger ale or a lemon-lime soda. Spike it with fruit liqueur or rum.
  • Use variations on famous cocktails. For instance, try a "Frankenstein's bolt" instead of a screwdriver. For this drink, you use green apple juice with the vodka, and an apple stirrer in the shape of a bolt.
  • Hot drinks, such as coffee drinks and hot chocolate based drinks are fun for Halloweens when there is a cold chill in the air.
  • Harvest-themed drinks are always popular. You can get special ingredients such as pumpkin liqueur for a unique treat.

Punch, cocktails, and hot drinks are the three basic types of Halloween drinks and cocktails. You can get creative in coming up with them and mixing them.

Look up recipes online, ask your friends, or use your imagination to make up your own. However, the real fun comes with the special effects and presentation.

 

Special Effects

 

  • Use dry ice to make fog come from the witches' brew punch. Simply start with a very large container resembling a witch's cauldron. Carefully place some dry ice in the bottom. Then, place your punch bowl on top of the dry ice. Your punch will be cooled, and at the same time an eerie fog will spread out over the top and into the room.
  • There are really no such things as glow in the dark drinks that can be safely ingested. However, there are drinks that react to black-lights. Tonic water, made from quinine, can be used to make drinks glow under black-lights. The drinks are even eerier if you use colorful liqueurs.

Always be on the lookout for special effects for Halloween drinks and cocktails. They can give your party a spooky atmosphere and heighten the festive mood.

Everyone will want to know how you created the special effects. If you want to keep everyone talking about your party long after it is over, do not divulge the secrets.

 

Presentation

 

Presentation just means the way you serve the Halloween drinks and cocktails. You might want to use special effect, for instance. However, there are other ways to create a mood. Get special Halloween party glasses and cups. Serve punch with spooky garnishes such as floating peeled grapes that look like eyeballs. Serve fizzy drinks from beakers for the image of an experiment gone wrong.

 

Whenever you think of Halloween drinks and cocktails, think of ways to make it fun and exciting; you will be glad you did.
