Blueberry Rickety Eyeball Punch

This punch (a creepy version of a classic rickey) is a refreshing drink for kids after trick-or-treating. Add some gin, and it’s an equally perfect after-dark cocktail for adults.

Witch’s Brew

This cauldron cocktail is perfect for grown-up Halloween parties. Having little ones at your bash? Simply omit the vodka — the punch will still be just as delicious.

Poison Apple Punch

Fresh ginger, cinnamon sticks and cloves add so much warm, spicy flavor to this mix of apple cider and whiskey. Fresh citrus zest rounds things out with a bright, natural sweetness.

Blood Orange Vampire Punch

Tart cherry and sweet blood orange juices are a great way to balance out mezcal’s characteristic smokiness. You can make this punch without the alcohol but when the flavors blend so perfectly, why would you?

Black Light Cocktail

Fun fact: tonic glows under a black light (which makes it the perfect addition to any Halloween cocktail). Trisha adds some to her finished drink as well as her ice cubes, for maximum effect.
