Halloween Drinks

What is a party without cool drinks?   Abstaining from alcohol as my family and friends do makes party drinks often boring or just more 2 liter bottles of the same old soda.  Not for my Halloween parties!

It is amazing what a little creativity and a trip to the thrift store for funky bottles can do to your drink table:

I got these labels at the local Dollar Tree and after 2 trips to the local thrift store I got bottles for them.  The really creative part was mixing up the drinks.  Even the most basic of lemon-lime carbonated drinks becomes something special with the additions of fruit juices, non-alcoholic mixers, and flavor syrups.

Here are some of my favorites (the amounts you add are up to your personal taste):

Embalming fluid:
Orange soda & pineapple juice

Lemon-Lime soda, Pomegranate Juice, & Cranberry Juice

Sulfuric Elixir:
Lemon-Lime or Mountain Dew, Sweet-Sour mixer, Lemon Juice

Spider Venom:
Soda Water, Blueberry Juice, & Blue Raspberry Syrup (Torani is best)

Zombie Virus:
Soda/ Tonic water & Green Apple syrup (Torani is best)

Liquid Phantom:
Soda/ Tonic water & Blue Raspberry Syrup (Torani is best)

These last 3 with soda or tonic water and syrup are the first 2 steps in a really delightful drink, all you have to do to them is add some cream, whipped or unwhipped, to make a fantastic and delicious italian cream soda.  I often serve cream on the side with the drinks saying something like "the spider venom is strong and best cut with a little cream..." 

Yeah I know, I am a little odd.

A note on Tonic Water, tonic water is cool but you have to be cautious with it.  It contains Quinine and will glow under black lights.  It is a really cool effect but it may be bad for some of your guests so get acquainted with it if you are going to use it: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tonic_water

Above all for a successful Halloween party, have fun!
