Halloween Punch Recipes for
It's not something you get when you go to a restaurant or a bar or anywhere else. Instead, that shiny, old-fashioned punch bowl is broken out for special parties and home celebrations. You can't get more homey or festive than punch.
Punch can also, however, be a lot of fun if you're looking for some great Halloween drink recipes. With some of the great Halloween punch presentation ideas below, you can transform any ol' punch into a fun, scary, or nasty-looking punch for Halloween. Just have fun with it. Or simply use some of the great Halloween punch recipes provided here.
Hot Caramel Apple Cider Punch
Looking for a cooler, more elegant adults-only version of this drink? You'll love our Cinnamon Caramel Apple Martini recipe. And if you're looking for more Halloween punch recipes that'll keep you toasty on Halloween night, try this fabulous Mulled Wine Recipe.
1 gallon apple cider
2 C. caramel sauce
1 1/2 tbsp. vanilla extract
Rum, brandy, or apple brandy (optional, to taste)
Instructions: 1. In a large, non-reactive pan (or in the crock pot), combine apple cider, caramel, and vanilla.
2. Heat over medium, stirring, until the cider is hot and the caramel is incorporated.
3. Drink as is or add rum, brandy, or apply brandy to taste. The booze can either be added to the whole batch (heat gently, but don't allow it to boil), or you can
simply add a shot of booze to each adult's mug before serving.
Black Punch Recipe
This black punch looks great in a creepy Halloween punch bowl.
1 pkg. (.13 ounce) grape drink mix (like Kool-Aid)
1 pkg. (.13 ounce) orange drink mix (like Kool-Aid)
2 C. white sugar
3 quarts cold water
1 bottle (1 liter) ginger ale
Instructions: 1. In a large punch bowl, combine grape and orange drink mixes, sugar, and water. Stir until combined and dissolved.
2. Just before serving, pour in the ginger ale.
Rotting Swamp Punch Recipe
You don't need a fancy Halloween punch bowl for this recipe... it looks best served up in ugly containers. I like to use a brand new (but ugly) plastic bucket for effect.
2 cans (12 oz. each) frozen lemonade concentrate, partly thawed
2 cans (12 oz. each) frozen limeade concentrate, partly thawed
1 bottle (750 mL) light rum (optional)
2 bottles (2 liters each) lemon-lime soda (like Sprite or 7-Up)
2 quarts of lime sherbert
Instructions: 1. In a large punch bowl, stir together the lemon and limeade concentrates. Add the soda.
2. Pour in optional rum. Stir.
3. Float scoops of lime sherbert on top. For an even grosser, grey-tinged look, you can use rainbow sherbert (this gives your punch a dirty, swampy look, and is
popular with lots of Halloween punch recipes.)
Velvet Vampire Punch Recipe
If you're looking for more Halloween drink recipes with Champagne, you'll love these Blood Orange Mimosas.
1 can (12 oz.) frozen cranberry juice concentrate
1 can (6 oz.) frozen orange juice concentrate
1 can (6 oz.) frozen pineapple juice concentrate
1 C. freshly squeezed lemon juice
2 C. brandy
2 bottles (750 mL each) Champagne, chilled
Instructions: 1. Prepare (dilute) juice concentrates according to the package directions. Combine.
2. Add lemon juice and brandy. Chill until cold.
3. Pour chilled juice mixture into your serving bowl. Pour in the champagne. Serve.

Making Any Punch Creepy for Halloween
Freaky Floating Hand
To make floating ice hands for your Halloween punch recipes, simply fill clear plastic food-handler's gloves with water, seal tightly with a rubber band, and freeze. You can pop them in the water with the glove still on (this way, they won't melt and water-down your punch), or run them for a moment under warm water and carefully remove the glove. Easy! You can also use colored water or various juices for an even creepier effect.
Cool Punch Bowls
You can put any party punch into any fun punch bowl to make it perfect for Halloween. Some creative punch bowl ideas are hollowed-out pumpkins, clean (new!) trash cans, cauldrons, and even fish bowls.
Nothing makes Halloween punch recipes look cooler than a chunk of dry ice and the creepy mist that results. Just be careful when using dry ice in punches... especially when serving kids!
Severed Body Parts
You can take something as simple as a pitcher of orange juice, toss some novelty body parts and severed fingers in it, and turn it way creepy for Halloween. You can also make your own fruity eyeball ice cubes for a sweet punch. There's a good tutorial for lychee and blueberry eyeball icecubes here.
Creepy Ice Cubes
You can freeze creepy crawlies or novelty items into individual ice cubes (like the creepy baby dolls pictured-- so funny!) or into a large, crawly mass like the bugs pictured here. Have fun with it!
