The Creepy Cauldron Cocktail Your Halloween Party Needs
This creepy, bubbling cocktail will be the talk of this year’s Halloween bash.
Instead of serving a boring batch cocktail at your Halloween party, wow your guests with this berry scary cauldron cocktail. It only takes a few simple steps to turn an already delicious drink into a theatrical work of art that will certainly elevate the spooky factor at your Halloween gathering.
- 1 bottle cabernet
- 1/2 cup simple syrup
- 1 cup raspberry liqueur
- 3 lemons
- 1 cup berry vodka
- 1 can lychee
- raspberry jam
- black licorice laces
- dry ice
Make Cocktail Base
In a large bowl, combine one bottle of cabernet, 1/2-cup simple syrup, 1-cup raspberry liqueur, 1-cup soda water, the juice of three lemons and 1-cup mixed berry vodka. Stir until fully mixed, add raspberries and blackberries, then chill in the refrigerator for at least four hours.
Stuff canned lychee with blueberries to create the perfect spooky eyeball garnish. For extra realism, spread a thin layer of red jam across the eyeballs, then skewer them to make them cocktail ready. Set a few eyeballs to the side to add to the cauldron as well. Create a second garnish by knotting black licorice to look like a spider. Add a pretty paper straw to the spider skewer to give it an elevated look.
Create a dramatic effect by nestling your punch bowl inside of a larger bowl and hiding dry ice between the two bowls. When time to serve, pour water on the dry ice and bask in the “oohs” and “ahhs” that will follow.
