This Halloween party punch looks just... well, it looks like the name implies! Which isn't a good thing on any day except for Halloween. The Dr. Pepper makes the whole drink brown and sewer-y, and the orange juice gives it a cloudy appearance that's not so appealing. But it tastes great! I like to make mine with vanilla vodka, but you can also use plain.
Sewer Water Alcoholic Halloween Punch: SO GROSS!
Be sure to serve this Halloween punch drink in a clear Halloween punch bowl to allow your guests to get the whole effect of its gross appearance. Serves about 12.
Tip: I love to serve this gross Halloween punch with these disgusting-looking Tasty Turds cookies! You can even float them on top! Or for an ultra-easy and ultra-gross presentation, melt Tootsie Rolls (like for a kitty litter cake) in the microwave and drape them on the sides of the punch bowl before preparing the punch. You can do this ahead of time.
Instructions: 1. In a large, clear punch bowl combine the vodka, orange juice, and Dr. Pepper.
2. Fill a separate container or ice bucket with ice.
3. Fill each punch glass with ice before serving. Serve with a lemon wedge if desired.
This gross-looking bathwater punch is a total Halloween classic. And I love to make this one because it's really versatile. Having a casual party with kids and other family members? This makes a great virgin Halloween punch recipe. Having adults over? Add a bottle or so of vodka to transform this into a tasty alcoholic Halloween punch recipe. Or try lemon or orange flavored or even berry vodka. It really is great!
Bath Water Punch: Gross Halloween Party Punch
And it looks really gross. The rainbow sherbert in this melts to a gross-looking day-old-bathwater grey color. It looks scummy and unappetizing... but it tastes great! A traditional way you'll see this Bathwater Punch Recipe served is with little after-dinner mints floating on the top to look like little soaps. And while that's cute, I usually skip it. My guests always seem to pick the mints out of their drinks and leave them --sticky and wet-- on their napkins. But it's up to you!
Instructions: 1. Remove 1/2 gallon (generally half of a package) sherbert from the freezer, scoop it into a bowl, and let thaw about 15-20 minutes. With a wooden spoon, stir the half-thawed sherbert around until brown-grey and ugly. Return to the freezer to re-freeze.
2. Place prepared lemonade and lemon-lime soda in a punch bowl. Add vodka if using.
3. Scoop out small spoonfuls of the brownish sherbert. Float them on top.
Eggnog is one of the most famous holiday punch recipes there is... but for the wrong holiday! Want to make something rich and special for a Halloween party punch? This pumpkin eggnog is delicious, different, and full of Halloween-y flavor. I like to garnish mine with a little bit of pumpkin pie spice on top instead of plain nutmeg-- it makes the perfect Halloween party punch.
Pumpkin Eggnog: My Favorite Halloween Eggnog Recipe
Also, as a bonus, this is a cooked eggnog recipe, so you don't have to worry if any of your guests (or you yourself) feel a little bit funny about raw eggs. Serve in a creepy witches' cauldron or even a hollowed out pumpkin-- so pretty!
Makes enough to serve 10-12 people, depending on how much you augment the volume with rum! To make this a delicious alcoholic Halloween punch recipe, I add lots.
Instructions: 1. In a large, heavy saucepan, whisk together the pumpkin puree and the milk. Bring slowly to a gentle boil. Remove from the heat.
2. Meanwhile, beat together your eggs and sugar in a heat-resistant bowl.
3. To temper your egg mixture, pour a small amount of your hot milk into the eggs, whisking constantly. Add a bit more, whisking all the while, until your egg mixture is hot and close to the temperature of your milk mixture.
4. Slowly and gradually whisk your tempered egg mixture into your milk mixture. Return to a medium-low heat.
5. Add cinnamon and nutmeg. Cook, whisking constantly, until the mixture coats the back of a spoon. Remove from heat and stir in cream, vanilla, and rum to taste.
6. Cover and refrigerate up to 24 hours. You'll want to let it chill for at least four hours to let the flavors combine. Garnish each serving with a cinnamon stick and a sprinkle of pumpkin pie spice.
Tip: If your eggs weren't tempered perfectly, you may end up with a few egg bits in your nog. If this happens, simply strain the pumpkin eggnog into your Halloween party punch bowl before chilling.
Decorating: If you want to make this Halloween party punch look a little more spooky, you can add a bit of orange food coloring before
you chill it. Decorate with a little bit of black-colored sugar. Serve in a punch bowl or pretty little cups. I like clear ones.
Whether you want to make an alcoholic Halloween punch recipe or a virgin punch for the kids, this recipe is just perfect. It's sweet, it's creamy, it's bubbly, it's tangy... and it's really rather creepy looking. The vanilla ice cream floating on top of the orange-red punch mixture makes it look like something pretty evil is brewing. I like to garnish mine with things like plastic frogs, plastic eyeballs, and severed fingers. But even if you serve it just as is, it makes a great impression.
Bubbling Witches' Brew Halloween Party Punch
Serves about 10 people. More if you add the vodka. Looks great served in a witch's cauldron bowl!
Instructions: 1. In a creepy-looking Halloween punch bowl, stir together the fruit punch and the soda.
2. Scoop out the ice cream and place all over the top of the punch. Stir gently for a moment to get the right look.
3. Garnish this Halloween party punch with creepy crawlies, if desired.
