13 Scarily Easy 3-Ingredient Halloween Cocktails
Neon Witches' Brew Halloween Cocktail
To start us off, we have a neon yellow witches' brew that's equal parts spooky and delicious. It's also light on the alcohol if you're looking for a less boozy drink that you can have a few of without feeling like a haggard old crone the next day.
To make it, you just need Midori Melon liqueur, orange juice, and lemon-lime soda. Shake the Midori and orange juice in a cocktail shaker with ice, then pour into a martini glass and top with lemon-lime soda.
5 Minute Witches' Brew
Here's another very different, but equally fun take on a witches' brew for you to try! Instead of having a bright, neon hue, this cocktail is as dark as a witch's soul...
Chambord black raspberry liqueur, grape juice, and Prosecco are the only three ingredients you need for this cocktail! It's fruity, fizzy, and will make anyone feel like a powerful enchantress.
Vampire Bite Halloween Cocktail
Who wouldn't vant to suck down this drink?? It checks all the boxes: it's a festive blood red color, super easy to make, and totally dracu-licious!
The three ingredients you need are lemonade, cherry vodka (like Smirnoff Cherry), and black cherry soda. Shake the lemonade and vodka in a shaker, then strain into a glass and top with the soda for a fang-tastic treat!
All of your goblins and ghouls are sure to love this boo-tiful potion! It's a wonderful color for Halloween and very easy to make in small or big batches.
Ingredients include vodka, triple sec, and lemon-lime Kool-Aid. Shake the ingredients up in a shaker with ice, then pour into a glass with crushed ice for a terrifyingly tasty drink.
Poison Apple Halloween Cocktail
No one will be able to resist this poison apple! The eerie shade of green and sour apple flavor are both perfect for spooky season.
For ingredients, you just need vodka, sour apple schnapps (like Dekuyper Pucker Sour Apple Schnapps), and sour apple mixer (like Master of Mixes). Shake them up in a shaker with ice and strain into a coup or martini glass.
Looks like poison, but tastes like a green apple Jolly Rancher!
The Crypt Keeper Cocktail
Most 90s kids will remember the terrifying Crypt Keeper puppet from the TV show Tales From the Crypt (pictured here for any brave souls who dare to look!).
While I wouldn't want to meet the Crypt Keeper in a dark alley, I might not mind it if he had a few of these cocktails to share!
Your ingredients are cranberry juice, blue curaçao (like Dekuyper Blue Curaçao), and vodka. Shake em' all up in a shaker with ice, then pour into a glass with crushed ice and enjoy this spook-tacular drink.
Halloween Rum Punch
If you were a ghost that decided to leave house haunting for a quick tropical vacation, this is absolutely what you would drink while lounging on the beach.
Coconut rum (like Malibu Coconut Rum) and green Hawaiian Punch make up the base of this cocktail. From there, you just top it off with a mound of gummy worms.
It's tropical and creepy-crawly all at once!
Pumpkin Moscow Mule Recipe
If you need a classy cocktail that's still super festive and fun, this pumpkin Moscow Mule fits the bill!
Typically a Moscow Mule is made with ginger beer, lime juice, and vodka. This pumpkin-themed riff on a mule keeps the ginger beer and lime juice, but subs the vodka for Captain Morgan Jack-O’Blast pumpkin rum, which comes in a bright orange pumpkin-shaped bottle!
Venom Drop Cocktail Recipe
This clever cocktail gets its bright red "venom" that floats at the bottom of the glass by adding grenadine before serving.
The other ingredients you need are blackberry juice and vodka. If you can't find blackberry juice though, feel free to use any juice that's darker than grenadine for an equally delectable and ghoulish drink.
Blood Orange Sangria
Nothing makes me happier when I walk into a party than seeing a big ol' pitcher of sangria! Sangria is also appropriate for Halloween, since it literally translates to "bloodletting".
For this sangria, you just need blood orange soda, white wine, and grapes. It's a super festive color and the grapes look like floating eyeballs!
Death in the Afternoon Cocktail
This classic cocktail invented by author Ernest Hemingway is wonderful for the spooky season! Not only does it have a creepy name, but it has an eerie color that comes from green absinthe.
The other ingredient is sparkling wine, so this drink only requires two ingredients in all. Watch out though, one of these is potent enough to knock you right off of your broomstick!
Black Magic Halloween Cocktail
No two colors say "Happy Halloween" as much as orange and black! This clever recipe layers orange juice, triple sec, and black vodka (yep, it's a thing!) for the ultimate Halloween cocktail.
You can find black vodka at pretty much any liquor store, but you can also make your own black vodka with vodka and food coloring. If you want to buy a bottle though, you can't go wrong with Blavod!
The result is a cocktail that tastes like Screwdriver and looks like a Halloween dream (or nightmare...).
White Ghost Caramel Cocktail
If Casper the friendly ghost had a signature cocktail, I imagine this would be it! It's sweet as sugar, while also being nice and boozy.
To make it you need white rum, evaporated milk, and caramel syrup. It's simple, sweet, and fab-boo-lously festive.
Which of these 3-ingredient Halloween cocktails has you excited for spooky season!? Since they’re so easy to make, I might just have to try all of them. There are 13 nights of Halloween according to ABC Family after all 🙂
