You can’t go wrong with a Halloween-themed drink, whether you’re having the neighborhood kids over before they go trick-or-treating or you’re just looking for ways to make your child’s day more fun.
Not many things are as scary fun as taking a sip of a boiling green drink from a witch’s cauldron or looking into your juice glass and seeing “eyes” staring back at you.
From breakfast to dinner and every other meal in between, these recipes make it easy to serve drinks that are sure to please. A favorite of ours? A very sweet cocoa after going door-to-door all night.
Hot cocoa bombs that are smooth and shiny will come from this way of tempering chocolate. Just make sure to use good-quality dark chocolate that has at least 70% cacao. When you’re ready to serve them, put on the gooey spider webs and candy eyes. Everyone will go crazy with joy!
10 Non Alcoholic Halloween Drinks
Bubbling Cauldron Punch
It looks like this pot is full of slippery toads, bat wings, and dragon scales, but it’s not. How does this tasty liquid look like it’s bubbling? Green tea ice cream in scoops!
Blueberry Rickety Eyeball Punch
This punch, which is a scary take on the classic rickey, is a fun drink for kids to have after trick-or-treating. They’ll be looking at it all the time!
Shirley Temple Of Doom
This creepy green drink is great for partygoers of all ages because it is made with sports drink, lemon-lime soda, and fresh lime juice.
Halloween Extra-Dark Hot Cocoa
There’s nothing better than this extra-dark hot cocoa on a rainy, dark October night. The intense color and rich taste of the drink come from black cocoa powder. Dip the edges of your cocoa mugs in melted semisweet chocolate and cover them with orange and black nonpareils for a scary-good Halloween look.
Want an interesting drink to offer on Halloween? We took a regular Shirley Temple and turned it into a creepy, drippy mocktail that is great for trick-or-treaters, complete with gummy eyeballs. For the adults, you can also add gin or vodka. The Cook’s Note will tell you how much to use.
Fizzy Hocus Pocus Punch
This sparkling mix of fruit juice, soda, and lemonade will take your breath away!
Cobweb Hot Cocoa
Because it’s in cream sandwich cookies, black cocoa has a rich chocolate flavor that tastes just like them. It’s naturally low in acidity and almost as black as midnight. These three things work well together to make a drink that is dark and chocolatey without being sour. It’s scary enough for Halloween and tasty enough for any day.
This horrible punch already has enough alcohol in it. Pineapple juice and lemon-lime soda go well together. The green color of this punch comes from powdered lime gelatin that makes it taste better.
Berry Eyeball Punch
Even though this drink bowl looks gross, those floating eyes are actually sweet and tasty lychee fruit with blueberries inside!
Vampire Bite Mocktail
Want a fun drink with a Halloween theme that you can serve at a kids’ party? This is blood-red. The best choice is a cranberry-apple drink.
