Halloween Ghost Punch
Ghost Punch

    This bubbly punch with creamy ghost ice cubes tastes delicious and looks great on a Halloween beverage table. Ghouls and goblins alike will love the fruity flavors.

Eyeball Ice Punch

    Guests will feel like they're being watched when helping themselves to a glass of this punch -- a creepy eyeball ice ring floats inside. But with fruity ingredients, the eye will add a chill -- and flavor -- to your Halloween punch.

Halloween Juice

    Turn your kitchen into a juice laboratory with three crazy drink combinations that add a healthy twist to Halloween fun. Some even have vegetable juice mixed in for wicked flavor.

Blue Slime Lemonade

    The blue "slime" in this zippy punch is actually blueberry-flavor gelatin floating in sparkling lemonade. Make this for your next monster bash.

Jack-o'-Lantern Brew

    A chilly mix of vanilla yogurt, orange juice, and orange soda makes this Halloween-worthy jack-o'-lantern brew. Festive goblets also add spooky Halloween flair.

    Editor's Tip: To make jack-o'-lantern glasses, print out face patterns and tape to the inside of goblets. Paint the faces with a black dimensional paint pen. Use a sharp pencil to gently "pull" the paint to create sharp corners and straight edges.

Transylvania Punch

    Just add cherry gelatin to lemon-lime carbonated beverage for Halloween punch fun.

Green Bat-inis

    Green lemonade is both refreshing and wickedly appropriate for the Halloween holiday. Give an adult edge to these ghoulish drinks by adding vodka.

    Editor's Tip: To make black bat picks, print out bat pattern, trace onto black cardstock, cut out, and use a dab of tacky glue to adhere to the tops of a clear cocktail stir sticks.

Wide-Eyed Fruit Smoothies

    These fruity smoothies are topped with meringue eyes for a ghostly sipper perfect for Halloween. Lemon yogurt and a blend of berries make these drinks as sweet as they are refreshing.

Apple Cider Punch

    Fruit juices, apple cider, and sparkling white grape juice make up this tasty Halloween concoction. Serve cold with black licorice sticks to use as Halloween-worthy straws.

    Editor's Tip: For an adult punch, use chilled champagne in place of sparkling grape juice.

Jack's Apricot Iced Tea

    Black tea and apricot nectar make a refreshing Halloween iced tea. Ladle the drink out of a clear punch bowl with a paper jack-o'-lantern face grinning on the front.

    Editor's Tip: Attach the face pieces with a temporary adhesive, such as gummy tack.

Eyeball Punch

    Guests will gasp when they discover an unexpected eyeball floating in their Halloween punch. But with a fruity fresh flavor these cherry eyes won't scare partygoers for long.

Blood Green Brew

    This blood green brew is actually a thirst-quenching purchased lemon-lime pop in disguise (just add extra food coloring for a gruesome green). The bloody mug only adds to the fright level of this Halloween beverage.

    Editor's Tip: Use red dimensional paint to drip "blood" from the rim of a beer mug. Leave a small open area so that your guest's lips won't touch any paint.

Jack-o'-Lantern Hot Cider

    Give your guests something warm to drink with this sweet strawberry cider. The red color of the drink may give your guests the chills, but once they take a sip of this hot beverage they're sure to warm up to it.

    Editor's Tip: For the jack-o'-lantern garnish cut a clementine in half and scoop out the insides. Using a sharp knife or a clean crafts knife cut a face in each rind. Push a wooden skewer through the rind from the bottom and out through the top.

Red-Handed Punch

    Guests will be caught red-handed when they go to get a drink of this punch. A floating frozen hand both cools and adds flavor to this Halloween punch.

    Editor's Tip: To make a spooky frozen hand, pour cranberry juice cocktail into two or three clear plastic gloves, leaving room so that the fingers can move easily. Seal gloves with rubber bands and freeze. Use scissors to cut the gloves off the frozen hands. If any fingers break off, add them separately to punch.

Orange-and-Red Potion

    For a magical Halloween drink that will amaze your guests, fill a highball glass about halfway with orange soda and then carefully add a spoonful of chilled cherry gelatin. The gelatin should float on top of the beverage. If desired, stir together just before drinking.

    Editor's Tip: Decorate a clear highball glass with pairs of oval and round wiggle eyes in assorted sizes to give your drink personality. Attach eyes to the outside of the glass with red dimensional paint or glue.

Haunting Hot Chocolate

    This hot white chocolate drink looks even spookier with a ghost-shape marshmallow floating in it. Warm up your guests -- and frighten them a bit too -- with this hot Halloween concoction.

Buggy Chai Punch

    With spicy chai and sweet orange and lime flavors, this buggy chai punch is sure to draw a crowd. Serve with ice for a refreshing thirst-quencher and a buggy garnish for added flavor.

    Editor's Tip: To make the buggy garnish, use a wooden skewer, lime rinds, and maraschino cherries for a spooky body, adding cloves for the bug's eyes.

Mad Science Martini

    Get creative in your kitchen with this spooky nonalcoholic beverage. Blends of fruit flavors make up the red-and-green beverage, which sips perfectly from a martini glass.

Batty Cranberry Apple Drink

    This Halloween drink will satisfy all of your senses with its spicy and fruity flavors. A mix of apple cider, cranberry, guava, and lime juices, as well as ginger, cinnamon, and allspice make this drink anything but boring -- especially when you add a batty garnish.

    Editor's Tip: A quick trip to the deli counter gives you the tools to make this batty vampire garnish. Salami wings, a gherkin body, and clove eyes are held together with a red wooden skewer.

Ice Cream Sodas

    These ice cream sodas are sure to make your guests scream in delight. Garnish Dracula's soda with gummy teeth and cherry "eyeballs" on straws. For the goblins in your midst, serve up tasty and fruity ghoul-ade.

Bloody-Rimmed Martinis

    Startle your Halloween guests with this wicked brew. White chocolate, coconut, cream, rum, and vodka make a tasty martini, while red cake gel around the rim adds just the right amount of fright. For younger goblins, substitute lemonade or lemon-lime soda.

Orange Cream Punch

    Orange juice concentrate, sweetened condensed milk, and ginger ale make a quick and tasty Halloween punch. Float orange sherbet on top and break an orange twist candy in half and place into cups to give the punch more Halloween flair.

Ghost and Ooze Slushies

    Capture the Halloween spirit with a refreshing white ghost sipper, reminiscent of a nonalcoholic pina colada. For a colorful drink with full-on fruit flavor, try a layered ooze slushie.

Gremlin Lemonade

    A martini glass with grenadine on the bottom, ice, and lemonade on the top serves as a toast-worthy Halloween drink. Spooky garnishes make this beverage even more holiday appropriate.

    Editor's Tip: For the gremlin garnish skewer a slice of kiwi for the face. Cut a cherry in half and attach with pieces of toothpick for eyes. Add the cherry stem for a smile and twists of lemon, lime, and orange peel for hair.

Orange Juice Slush

    A combination of tasty fruit juices turn this Halloween treat into a delicious slush for any occasion. Apricot nectar, orange juice, sliced peaches, and lemon-lime soda give this drink a tasty zing.

Fruity Face Punch

    Pineapple juice, orange juice, lemonade, and an array of fresh fruit pieces create this fruity Halloween drink. Just warn your guests -- when they look closely, they'll see a fruity face floating in their drink -- not what you'd expect when sipping punch.

Slimy Layered Drinks

    Customize these drinks to add fun to the Halloween festivities. Choose your base (ice cream, pudding, or a milk shake) and a favorite fruit-flavor syrup. In a clear glass, alternate layers of the base with the fruit syrup.

    Editor's Tips:
    -- To make the spooky watching eyes, freeze a mini chocolate cake roll, cut into thick slices horizontally, and attach red cinnamon candies with frosting for eyes.
    -- For the green spider garnish, cut gummy candy rings in half and place along the rim as legs. Place a soft fruit candy in the center for the body and dab on decorative gel icing for the eyes.
