Spooky Drinks for Halloween!

25 Oct

Here’s a great list of scarey drinks you can make for your kids this Halloween – we particularly like the Halloween Slime Punch and Witch’s Brew. If your kid is a little nervous, you might want to leave out the floating hand in some of these drinks. What drinks do you like to serve on Halloween?

Thanks to the “Chew On That” blog for sharing these recipes!!

Entertain the little ones with these spooky, creepy and tasty drink recipes on Halloween.

Halloween Slime Punch: This is so good, I even use it for birthdays and showers without the bugs.

Witch’s Brew: A black cauldron bubbles and steams ominously. This is the most dramatic effect for drinks, essential at a Halloween party.

Dirty Bath Water: This is a fun drink to make for kids during Halloween – they’ll be so grossed out they’ll all want to try it!

Black Halloween Punch: Delicious! As it is with any Halloween punch, a frozen ‘hand’ adds just the right spooky touch!

Scary “Goulade”: This “Goulade” really packs a punch when you float a frightening, ghostly blue hand in your serving bowl.

Wormy Swamp Punch: A frozen orange ice ring floats in a swampy sea of pineapple-flavored punch in this Halloween beverage recipe.
