Spooky Halloween Punch Recipes and Party Ideas

Updated on January 26, 2016

Halloween Punch and Party Ideas

Try the three spooky good Halloween punch recipes. Kool-Aid and ginger ale in one, apple cider and cranberry juice in the second one and orange juice with sherbet in the last one. Make these punch recipes anytime. Halloween is the best time to get dress up in costumes and go trick or treating. Geared for adults and children of all ages, a Halloween party that is complete with eerie fun drinks (non-alcoholic or alcoholic for some adults). Below are tasty punch recipes for your party that are great for children and adults alike.

Some ideas to make that party a hit would be to turned your building or house into a haunted maze. Have a dance off while listening to "The Monster Mash" and other funny or haunting music. Games are always fun to have like bobbing for apples and pumpkin bowling.

A party wouldn't be a party without great snacks and treats. Pumpkin Bars with Cream Cheese Frosting are amazingly delicious with any spooky Halloween punch.

The floating ice hand in a decorative punch bowl as shown in the photo has the instructions below. More wonderful ideas for holiday decorative ice cubes for your festive time are included.

The spooky hand made of ice will be a real scream!

Punch Recipe Review

5 stars for Spooky Halloween Punch

Spooky Halloween Punch


1 (makes 2 quarts size) envelope of unsweetened Kool-Aid orange soft drink mix

1 (makes 2 quarts size) envelope of unsweetened Kool-Aid grape soft drink mix

2 cups white sugar

3 quarts cold water

1 liter ginger ale


Stir together the drink mixes and sugar with the cold water until dissolved. Combine with chilled ginger ale just before serving. Add decorative ice cubes with a Halloween theme to finish it off.

Non-Latex Glove

Floating Ice Hand and Decorative Ice Ideas

Many people have latex allergies. These are allergies to the skin. It is unclear the potential dangerous effect it could have with the person who is allergic to latex if she or he would have the punch with this type of glove in it. Make sure that you purchase power free and non-latex gloves.

The floating hand is easy to make. A few days before your Halloween ghouls join the party; thoroughly wash a non-powered and non-latex glove. Fill it with water. To give it a different eerie look, try adding some food coloring that would be a different color than the punch.

Then seal off the end of the glove with rubber bands. Set the glove into a small pan to catch any run-off and freeze. Before setting it in the bowl of punch, run it under warm water to loosen the ice.

Another idea is to fill a mask with punch, freeze, and then un-mold and place it into your punch bowl.

You can also find gelatin molds for making brains, hearts and other organs in Halloween stores that work for making ice.

      These are great ideas. Every year at Halloween when my girls were teens a couple of friends and I used to throw a Halloween party for our children and their friends. That way they could still celebrate Halloween but leave the Trick or Treating to the younger kids.
