My neighborhood goes big on Halloween. There are parties, gatherings, parades, and scary-awesome celebrations that go on for weeks. There are kid-friendly festivities and grown-up dinner parties, frightfully fun desserts and kooky-spooky cocktails. It's a blast. But, this year, I won't be sipping on any sinister spiked drinks or wicked wines. No, this Oct. 31st, I'll be trading in the BOO-ze for a mocktail.

Mocktails for Halloween

It's not like I typically go crazy on Halloween. But with a baby brewing in my belly, that post-trick-or-treating glass of vino is a no-go. (I'll get all the yummy candy, though!) Still, I want to get into the spirit of things--so I'm excited to whip up a batch of witches' brew punch. Lime gelatin mix gives it a tart punch, while cucumber-jalapeño juice kicks things up a notch. Together, the spice, lime, and ginger ale helps this mocktail resemble a margarita--without the tequila, of course. But you could easily add tequila or vodka for those who aren't expecting!

I love that you can serve in a large pitcher for parties--or even a cauldron (insert wicked laugh), if the mood strikes. It's kitschy and fun served in lab beakers, but tastes just as good in a glass. Here's the enchanting recipe...


Witches Brew Punch Ingredients:

  • 3 oz package of lime gelatin mix
  • 4 cups very warm water (almost boiling)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 32 oz Cucumber Jalapeño juice, chilled
  • 16 oz (or more to taste) Ginger Ale, chilled
