SPOOKY AND SCRUMPTIOUS HALLOWEEN THEMED DRINK IDEAS



Something you should know about me... I LOVE HALLOWEEN! Well actually I love all holidays and all chances to have an alter ego (go out in fancy dress) and so I'm super excited that its fall and I get to do lots of halloween and the christmas posts! To start off I've put together a list of all the best halloween themed drinks I've found. There's some soft drinks for the kids and plenty of alcoholic drinks for us adults (can't miss them out of course). There's also links to the recipes if you fancy getting into the halloween spirit and trying out these daring drinks.

Some extra halloween inspired ideas to have the most memorable and spooky party in town!


  • Put your shots or jello shots in syringes. 
  • Place gummy worms in the bottom or over the edge of your glass.
  • hangs fangs over the rim of your glass (you can ever colour them black or colour the tips red).
  • Decorate your drinks with black liquorice or red vines (you could even use the red vines at straws).
  • Put little plastic spiders in the top of your drinks (make sure they are clean first!)
  • Use dry ice in your drinks for a cool smokey potion effect. 
  • Draw spider webs on your glasses (maybe use washable marker if you dont want them permanently halloween themed).
  • Dip the rim of your glasses in black sugar (or any halloween coloured sugar or sprinkles)
  • Fill a rubber glove with water and freeze it for a hand shaped ice cube in the punch bowl. 
  • Have floating shrunken heads in your punch bowl but pealing and apples and carving faces on them.
  • Dip your glass in edible fake blood and let it drip down the glass.
