What’s a Halloween party without some spooky punch or witch’s brew? You have to serve a beverage and Halloween presents some options for being really creative with your punch plans. You can serve unusual colors like green or black and best of all are the things you can float in the punch! Your guests will be enchanted with these Halloween punch ideas.
3 liters of ginger ale
18 ounce of frozen lemonade concentrate, thawed
2 envelopes orange-flavored, presweetened drink mix
Green food coloring
1 new household plastic glove
At least one day ahead of time, fill a container with 3 cups of water and add several drops of green food color until you get the shade you want. Pour the water into the glove and use a twist tie to secure the opening. Place the glove on a baking sheet lined with a towel. Use a small heavy bowl to hold the tied end up. Place in the freezer for at least 24 hours.
Mix the powdered drink mix, lemonade and 8 cups of water in a punch bowl. Stir until the drink mix is dissolved. Slowly add ginger ale. Cut the glove away from the iced hand. Float the hand in the center of the punch.
1 ½ cups gummy worms
6 cups green berry rush kiqwi-strawberry fruit punch
54 ounces orange-flavored carbonated drink
54 ounces grape-flavored carbonated drink
17 ounce frozen grape juice concentrate, thawed
Use a 6 to 10 cup ring mold to make gummy worm ice ring. Set worms in ring leaving some to dangle over the edges. Pour fruit punch over worms and fill to within 1 inch of rim. Freeze until solid which should take 5 to 6 hours.
In a large punch bowl, mix the soda and juice together. Dip the outside of the ring mold in a bowl of hot water to loosen. When loose, remove from the mold and place in center of punch bowl. Be sure to set it so dangling worms are visible.
4 cups apple cider
3 to 4 cups vanilla ice cream
4 tablespoons honey
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
Mix all ingredients in a blender or food processor until smooth. Pour into a pitcher and serve with a sprinkle of nutmeg in each glass.
Alternative for Punches with Floating Ice Figures: Take an old Halloween mask like for Superman or some other human character. Line the mask with saran wrap and set in a baking sheet lined with towels. Bunch the towels up around the mask so it will remain level. Slowly pour water into the mask. Place it in the freezer for 24 hours. Remove the mask and peel the Saran wrap away. Drop the face into the punch face up of course. Guests always get a kick out of the face floating in the punch.
