It’s October and time to think about how you are going to celebrate Halloween this year! It’s a great time to invite your neighbors and friends over and throw a party. There are many drinks you can make that do not contain alcohol and loads of Halloween games that are great for both children and adults. Here are a few tips that can help you find the right beverages and games for your Halloween-themed party.

Easy Halloween Drink Recipes

  • Create a great Halloween punch with a mixture of fruit juice and soda. You can choose the flavors to taste, but some good combinations are cranberry juice, apple cider and seltzer water or grape juice, cranberry juice, and lemon-lime soda. You can find more ideas in Country Living.
  • Make individual cocktails on the spot with sliced fruit, seltzer water, and fruit juice.
  • Create mock-tails from an online recipe. Town & Country recommends several including the Nice Pear (lemon juice, pear juice, and rosemary-infused syrup).
  • If you are going to a party that serves alcohol, bring your own mock-tails. Take the ingredients of one of the recipes on the pages linked and offer to put it together at your hosts’ house. They will definitely appreciate it, it’s always great to have a non-alcoholic version for those who don’t drink.

Halloween Party Ideas & Tips

If you want to keep your party completely alcohol-free, let your friends know when you invite them. Make sure your party guests are sober before they get behind the wheel. If you know your guests are too drunk to drive, have them sleep over or drive them home yourself. Halloween is a time for family and friends to get together and celebrate a new season. Happy Halloween! Be safe this season and always.
