(NewsUSA) - As every adult knows, Halloween is not just for kids. Grown-ups may not be out ringing the neighbors’ doorbells, but that doesn’t mean they won’t be having fun.
When planning your adult Halloween party, don’t be afraid to get creative with food and drinks based on your theme. Dress up your hot dogs or pigs in a blanket as severed fingers, draw a spider web on your bowl of dip with sour cream for savory, whipped cream or chocolate for sweet. You can’t go wrong with ghost or pumpkin cookies, and the variations are endless.
For drinks, what’s a Halloween party without a punch bowl. Take your drinks up a notch by serving them in a cauldron. If you really want to freak your guests out, you could even buy a zombie hand that can hold the ladle for serving.
These boozy Halloween punch recipes are definitely a treat and not a trick. However, you can make your guests think twice by chilling the drinks with eyeball or skull ice cubes.
Did you know that dry ice emits a foggy substance when it mixed with a liquid? If you want your cauldron to steam, try adding some food-grade dry ice to the punch right before guests arrive. Since it’s cold, it’ll also work to keep the drinks chilled.
Finally, fill your cauldron (or glass) with Witch’s Berry Brew, made special with the distinctive flavor of Seagram Escapes Berry Mimosa.
- 3/4 cup Seagram’s Escapes Berry Mimosa
- 1 oz vodka
- 1/4 oz blue curacao
- Lime wedge
- 1/4 cup berries, plus more for garnish
The directions are frightfully simple. Combine Seagram’s Escapes Berry Mimosa, vodka, blue curacao and juice from the lime wedge to a mixing glass or pitcher and stir to combine.
Next, add 1/4 cup of berries to a 17-ounce wine glass. Fill the glass with crushed ice. Pour the cocktail mixture into the glass. If desired, garnish with berries.
