Fun Halloween Drinks for kids + Adults
If you’re planning a Halloween party, you probably have decorations and food galore. Make sure you round out your party with one of these delicious Halloween Punch Recipes!
I have several tips for Halloween Drinks, as well as a list of our favorite recipes to serve at parties.
Dress up the punch bowl, the individual cups, or add accessories to the drink itself! Carry out the theme in every little detail at your monster mash and wow your guests. 😉
Rather than Halloween cocktails, all of these drinks are non-alcoholic, which means even the littlest ghost and goblin can enjoy them!
make drinks fun and festive
Punch Bowl ideas
- Clear punch bowls are fun to show off funky colors or floating eyeballs.
- Use a bowl shaped like a witch’s cauldron.
- Any large Halloween themed bowl works. Check your local craft store or online store for some amazing ideas.
Drink Cup ideas
- Simple clear plastic cups. Again, clear cups will showcase any spooky additions, such as eyeballs floating in the drink.
- Use drink beakers. Like the ones a mad scientist would use.
- Fancy cocktail glasses are always fun.
- Glass milk containers. These are especially fun if you draw Jack-o-Lantern or Ghost faces on them. (Note: marker can be removed using a magic eraser.)
- Fancy glasses. Like the bowls, you can find some really cool Halloween glasses and goblets at craft stores or online stores.
- Halloween colored straws. Slide a Halloween Peep marshmallow on each straw.
- Use a glow stick to help stir your “potion”. Small glow sticks work great for cups. Larger, fat glow sticks can work to stir the punch bowl.
- Creepy crawlies. Fasten a plastic spider or drape gummy worms over the rim of the cup or punch bowl.
- Add floaters like monster eyeballs, vampire teeth, or plastic spiders. Make sure they are large and obvious enough that someone doesn’t accidentally swallow one and choke.
- Monster hand. Fill a clear glove with water, fasten it closed and freeze it. Once frozen, have it floating around in the punch bowl to help keep it cool.
- Garnish drinks with a cherry, wedge of lemon or lime, whipped cream, or candy corn!

“Bubble, Bubble Toil and Trouble”
Ever wonder how people get that smokey witches brew effect? Dry Ice! Dry ice is the solid form of carbon dioxide, so when it melts it returns to its gaseous state.
Be cautious when handling dry ice. It is extremely cold and can burn your skin. Also, dry ice should never be eaten or swallowed.
Use dry ice to make your punch bowl smokey. I like to use the two-bowl method:
- Find a smaller punch bowl that will fit inside the larger decorative bowl.
- Add 2-3 inches of water to the larger bowl and place the smaller bowl inside.
- Pour the punch into the smaller bowl.
- When the party starts use tongs to add chucks of dry ice to the water in the larger bowl. It will immediately start to smoke.
- Add more water and dry ice as needed.
How much to serve
On average, guests will drink 4-8 oz during the first hour and 4 ounces for every hour after.
People also like to drink water along with punch, so have an equal amount of water available for guests.
Keeping Drinks Cold
A common concern for party punch is that adding ice will water down the punch.
There are several ways to keep the punch cold without using ice. Try any of these tricks:
- Make extra juice and freeze it into ice cubes or ice blocks. That way you can have a cold drink without worrying that the melting ice will dilute the punch.
- Make ice cubes using a juice that will complement the drink: pomegranate juice, fresh lime juice, fresh lemon juice, pineapple juice, or orange juice.
- Cold storage. Keep extra punch and water in the fridge or in a cooler. Fill the beverage dispenser as needed.
- Frozen fruit. Instead of adding ice cubes, use frozen fruit. Match the fruit with what is already in the punch. If your punch uses cranberry juice, then freeze some cranberries to add to the punch bowl. Frozen raspberries could also be a nice addition.
When transporting, avoid filling punch bowls and pitchers with the beverage. Many of them don’t have secure lids and you don’t want it spilling out in your car or cooler.
Instead, save empty water jugs or use secure containers to fill with punch. You could also large, insulated beverage coolers. Once you’re ready to serve the punch, pour it into serving pitchers and bowls.

Most of these recipes make several servings, which is perfect for punch bowls at parties.
