Take a look at our delicious Halloween mocktails and give a few of them a try. There is something on our list for everyone and every fall occasion.
How to Make Spooky Halloween Mocktails
There are a few things to keep in mind when thinking about creating a spooky Halloween drink. After assessing lots of Halloween drink buffets and Halloween parties, here are some takeaways that we think will help you make some great Halloween mocktails.
- Consider the color- Weird colored drinks suit Halloween parties best. Black, neon green, blood red, orange and bright yellow are all good choices.
- Add a spooky garnish- Now is the time to throw a plastic spider into the glass or a floating candy eyeball. Get creative, get spooky!
- Try out effects- A few special effects can really make a drink extra special. Dry ice in or around a drink will give a creepy, smoky look. A glass rimmed in Pop Rocks candy will jump inside your mouth. A sprinkle of edible glitter will make your mocktail shimmer in the dark. All of these ideas add a very special flair to your drink.
- Remember the flavor- You always want your Halloween mocktails to taste good. That is the true key to a good drink!
Fall Themed Mocktails
Great fall mocktails need to be reminiscent of the season. They need to have flavors that are popular around fall and these flavors need to really stand out. Here are a few of the most popular flavors of fall. Hopefully these ideas will help you decide what kind of perfect, fall themed mocktails you are going to make!
- Pumpkin spice
- Apple Pie
Warm drinks are also great in the fall when the weather starts to get a little colder. Those slushy, frozen beverages you have been drinking all summer may no longer be as appealing!
Simple Halloween Mocktails and Fall Themes Mocktails
Here are our favorite 7 mocktails for you to make for Halloween or just all season long. Each drink is delicious, unique and perfectly themed for this time of year.
1. The Black Mocktail - perfect Halloween Mocktail
A big martini glass filled with dark, black liquid is both spooky and exciting. The best part is that it is also delicious! Our black mocktail is made using pitted black cherries, pomegranate juice, agave syrup and a little bit of black food coloring. You can skip the food coloring if you’d like a deep, velvety red drink instead.
The pomegranate juice and cherry juice are a brilliant blood red color. Both black and red are perfect for Halloween!
Apple pie punch is a delicious and very fall-festive drink. There is nothing quite as “fall” as fresh baked apple pie!
We have packed all that delicious apple pie flavor that you love into a glass. Fresh apple cider, apple pie spice and white grape juice all blend together to make a super tasty drink.
We top our apple pie punch recipe with fizzy ginger ale to give the drink interest. Toss a cinnamon stick in the glass for an easy, seasonal garnish.
3. Pumpkin Pie Martini Mocktail - Pumpkin Halloween Mocktail
It isn’t fall unless you have something pumpkin spice flavored! One sip of this mocktail and you will instantly know that fall is here. Our delicious drink is made with real pumpkin puree, sweetened condensed milk and half and half. It is quite the decadent drink!
If you want to make pumpkin pie mocktails for your Halloween party, prep the martini glasses in advance, rimming the edges of the cups with the graham cracker crumbs.
Mix the martini in a big pitcher and keep it chilled. Simply pour a martini into a prepared glass for party time!
Our blood orange spritzer is a pretty refreshing, light drink. You may be wondering how it ended up on a spooky Halloween list. Did you see the word “blood” in there? Anything that has to do with drinking blood is spooky to us!
Garnish your blood orange spritzer with a slice of fresh blood orange to show off that deep red color. Remind all your guests that they are drinking real blood…in a way, they are!
Our rich butter beer recipe is on our Halloween mocktails list for two reasons- it falls into the category of fall themed mocktails and also spooky Halloween mocktail.
The intense taste of butterscotch is very fall-y. Add caramel, butter and whipped cream to the mix and you have an incredibly fall themed drink. Our alcohol free butter beer is a little spooky thanks to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.
Butter beer is the signature drink of the wizards and many dark and scary scenes take place over a mug of butter beer. Set the scene for your Halloween party using this festive and tasty drink.
Mulled apple cider is a quintessential fall drink. It has been the go-to drink of the season for decades. Mulled cider is quite tasty as the warm liquid is soothing and flavorful. An orange slice garnish and a cinnamon stick make it picture perfect.
If you are making this recipe for a party, we recommend keeping it warm in a slow cooker or crockpot. The slow heat will make your drink the perfect temperature and your guests can simply ladle the cider into mugs.
The strange greenish tint give it a creepy vibe that will intrigue your guests. However, the coconut lime flavor will have them coming back for seconds.
