Who doesn’t love a good party? If you’re planning a Halloween party this year, you’re definitely going to want a punch bowl to keep your guests hydrated, and some festive mocktails are the best way to go! Plus, mocktails are perfect to keep up sober October. Here’s a few options to pick from.
Ah, the Harry Potter classic. It’s both nostalgic and delicious, and although you can buy similar things bottled online and at some stores, it’s also so easy to make at home. Just mix cream soda with a drizzle of butterscotch syrup and add vanilla ice cream and whipped cream!
If you’re over the age of 21, you can switch the syrup with butterscotch schnapps or add a splash of bourbon to give it a bit of a kick
Fancy Apple Cider
Apple cider is a classic fall drink, but why not spice it up this Halloween? Mix two parts apple cider with one part ginger ale soda and white grape juice and you have a drink that feels both classy and seasonal.
Making this will make you feel like a witch brewing your newest potion! To make this spooky bright green drink dissolve two packages of lime gelatin and one half cup of sugar in one cup of boiling water. Add three cups of cold water. Stir in one quart of lemon-lime soda and one quart of lemon-lime Gatorade and enjoy! With this drink, you get a layer of gelatin on top that’s both tasty and fun.
Pumpkin Spice Hot Chocolate
I don’t think a Halloween list is complete without something that’s pumpkin-flavored. Mix one cup of milk with one tablespoon of pumpkin puree in a pot over medium low heat. Add a splash of vanilla extract and a few shakes of cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and ginger to taste (use a pumpkin pie spice mix for convenience). Add a pinch of salt. Cook until bubbles form at the sides and take off the heat. Add one third cup of white chocolate chips and stir until chips are melted and combined. Top with whipped cream.
