Fizzy Potion Halloween Punch

This post is sponsored by Sprouts Farmers Market. As always, all opinions, thoughts and recipes are my own.

Mix up Fizzy Potion Punch this October for a spooky and fun party sipper! This nonalcoholic Halloween drink makes a fun drink for kids and adults. Makes 1 drink, but can easily be turned into a Halloween punch bowl.

You know when you have a vision for something, but you can’t quite execute it?

That was this Halloween Punch recipe for me.

My friends at Sprouts Farmers Market asked if I’d be interested in making a fun Halloween recipe that fit into a color theme.

    I said yes because I love a good theme. I also love anything and everything Halloween related.

    I was given the color purple and told to draw inspiration from cauldrons and potions. It’s like a twist on witches brew without added food coloring, sherbet or gummy worms!

    Why I love this recipe:

    This kid-friendly Halloween drink would be perfect to sip while trick or treating.

    It’s also the perfect drink to sip after while sorting through your candy stash!

    It’s would be awesome for a party, and I have a way you can transform this into a punch bowl recipe. More on that below.

    Basically, however you decide to serve this Halloween punch, it’s a fabulous and light recipe.

    (However, you won’t find whipped cream, apple cider or ginger ale in this drink, so if you’re looking for something with that, you’ll need to go elsewhere.)

    Let’s talk ingredients!

    In addition to the tools above, you’re going to need some ingredients to make this recipe, too! Chances are, you might already have some of them in your fridge or pantry. Scroll down to the recipe card for the full measurements and instructions.

    Here’s what you’ll need:

    • Lemon Sparkling Water — or your favorite flavor of sparkling water. I think lime would also be delicious here.
    • Unsweetened cranberry juice — this gives us the spooky color and also some tartness to balance out the grape juice
    • Concord grape juice — this stuff tastes like childhood, IMO, and it adds such a nice pop of sweetness
    • Frozen blackberries — these are for the garnish, and I love how spooky they look. That said, you could swap them with another frozen berry if you prefer those. These will keep our drinks cold without the need for ice cubes!

    This punch recipe is a little different than others you might see, but it’s a fun twist on a witches brew.

    I’ve also got Melting Monster Halloween Punch, if you’re in the market for a lime sherbet, lemon lime soda combination.

    Erin’s Easy Entertaining Tips

    This kid-friendly punch is perfect for Halloween party, in my opinion. The fizziness adds something extra and super spooky, too.

    Another thing I love about this punch is that it’s light and has no added sugar, like so many Halloween drinks. (Hey, there’s a time and a place, but I love a sipper that’s naturally sweetened.)

    We love sharing this Halloween drink with friends, and I’ve put together some tips and tricks for y’all below:

    • Turn your bar into a drink station. Print out the directions and measurements below for this Halloween punch. Set these out, and include all the ingredients with cups and measuring utensils. Let guests make their own throughout the night!
    • Make it a Halloween Punch Bowl. If you’re serving a lot of folks, make a pitcher! Mix the cranberry and grape juices, and chill. Chill the sparkling water, and add that and the frozen berries just before serving.
    • Spike it! If you’re not inviting kids to your Halloween gathering and you know your people will love a Halloween alcoholic punch, add spiced rum or vanilla vodka!

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Can I use dry ice to make this punch extra spooky?

    You can use it to create a fog around your punch as it’s being served, but it is NOT safe to put dry ice in something you’re drinking!

    If you want to create a spooky dry ice fog, I suggest setting out a punch bowl near the pitcher of punch (or the punch station). Place the dry ice in the bowl carefully wearing gloves or with tongs, then pour hot water on top of it just before guests arrive. It’ll bubble and toil and add extra potion-y decoration to your drink table.

    Can I make this Halloween punch ahead of time?

    You can make part of it ahead of time! If you’re making it in a pitcher, chill everything in advance, and mix the grape and cranberry juices. Before guests arrive, pour in the sparkling water and the frozen berries.

    What flavor variations can I use?

    If you don’t like lemon sparkling water, lime would be a good substitute! You could also use orange, too.

    Can I add alcohol to this Fizzy Potion Halloween Punch?

    So long as you’re not serving it to kids, absolutely! I think vodka, spiced rum or even tequila would be delicious with the ingredients of this mocktail.
