Creepy Cooler

Give grape juice a little fizz and bubbles by adding soda. Pour in a jug or punch bowl and let the kids (if able) serve themselves. To make a batch, mix equal parts 100% grape juice and lemon-lime soda. Serve over ice. Click here to download the creepy cooler drink label.

Ghost Milkshake

Every kid loves a treat that stares back at them. You’ll need: 6 scoops vanilla bean ice cream. 1 cup milk, whipped topping and candy eyes. Add the ice cream and milk to the blender. Blend until thick and frothy. Top with whipped topping and add candy eyes. Click here to download the ghost milkshake label.

Cherry Chiller

Kids will love having their lips turn red after drinking this refreshing potion. But, you may want to serve it outside and not on the carpet. To make a jug full, you’ll need: 2 liters of lemon-lime soda, 1/4 cup grenadine and some maraschino cherries. Mix soda and grenadine in punch bowl or jar. Add cherries for a creepy eyeball effect. Serve in blood dripped glass or jar (see next slide).

Cherry Chiller

To make the dripping blood rim, mix corn syrup and food coloring in shallow bowl that is wider than the rim of the jar or glass. Dip the rim of the glass into the syrup and allow it to drip. Place in a freezer for a few minutes to help solidify the drips. Download the cherry chiller label.

Pumpkin Crush

This one couldn’t be simpler, and the kids will love the bright-orange hue of this slushy. To make a pitcher, add 2 cups orange soda and 4 cups ice to a blender and blend until smooth. Download the pumpkin crush label.

Spider Smoothies

Sshhh! The kids don’t have to know that spinach is what makes this drink green. To make this healthy beverage, you’ll need: 2 cups frozen pineapple, 4 cups baby spinach, 1-1/2 cups orange juice and 1 banana. Add ingredients to a blender. Blend for about one minute on high, or until smooth. Serve with cute straws and creepy spiders.
