Drizzle the inside of 3 large glasses with warmed hot fudge sauce. Blend 2 pints vanilla ice cream with 3/4 cup pumpkin puree, 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice, and ½ cup milk until smooth. Divide between prepared glasses and top with whipped cream. Use chocolate candies (such as Reese’s Pieces or M&Ms) to create spooky faces in the whipped cream. Booze it up by blending in a splash of bourbon!
2. Witch’s Brew Punch
Disclaimer: DO NOT TOUCH DRY ICE WITH YOUR HANDS! You can find dry ice at your local ice house or at many retailers, such as Walmart and Costco.
Place a large mixing bowl inside a larger punch bowl. Place 4 cups dry ice pellets into punch bowl, surrounding the bottom of the mixing bowl. Pour 2 cups water onto dry ice. Fill inner bowl with ½ cup orange liqueur, 2 cups chilled pomegranate juice, and 1 bottle chilled Prosecco. Garnish with lime and orange rounds. Serve over ice. Once smoking subsides, pour more water over dry ice to create more smoke. Don’t worry if water touching dry ice bubbles up. Once punch bowl is empty, refill with another batch of punch!
Fresh Tip: This punch recipe makes about 8 servings, so you can cut the measurements in half for the perfect at home Halloween treat.
3. The Goblet of Fire
This Harry Potter inspired cocktail certainly has flair in its presentation. To make it, pour freshly squeezed blackberry juice and a squeeze of lime juice over crushed ice. Top it off with some rum and enjoy!
4. Mad Scientist
Serve these out of beakers or potion bottles from your local craft store for an extra feeling of mad science! To make, combine vodka, 2 oz Green chartreuse, and 4 oz lemonade in a shaker tin. Then, add ice and shake. Serve chilled over ice for delicious results.
5. Candy Apple Spritz (Kid’s Mocktail)
Pour 2 TBSP grenadine into a highball glass and fill with ice. Fill glass ⅔ full with apple cider and top with seltzer water. Garnish with a cinnamon stick and spooky straws. For an adult boozy version, simply add a splash of dark rum and a squeeze of lemon juice.
