Halloween is just around the corner, which means the kids are getting excited for the slew of spooky school functions and neighborhood Halloween parties that are creeping up. Now it’s your turn to come up with something ghoulish and fun to bring to the table. Instead of piling on to the already overcrowded spread of Halloween-themed baked goods and treats, why not brew up a festive drink for the kids instead? Here are some spooky water recipes for kids that’ll surely be guzzled down amidst the ghosts and goblins.
Make fruit punch extra spooky for Halloween with Green Ghoul Punch. First, dissolve the gelatin mix in 1 quart of hot water in a sauce pan. Once the gelatin is cool, get a large punch bowl and mix in the pineapple juice, orange juice concentrate, sugar and cold water, then finish with ginger ale. Not only does this top the list for kid-approved flavored water ideas and stay true to Halloween theme, but it’s also packed with vitamin C.
For a homemade flavored water that both you and the kids can sip to get in the Halloween spirit, try Edible Eyeball-Infused Water. The fruit-infused water recipe is simple. Pit and peel the lychee, then insert the blueberries into the cavity where the lychee seeds once were. These will be the fruity eyeballs that add a touch of sweetness and bold flavor to the water. Place the eyeballs in a pitcher or water-infuser with filtered water and let infuse in the refrigerator for at least two hours. The spooky drink is not only chills-inducing, it’s also a good source of antioxidants and B-complex vitamins that’ll help fuel your little monsters.
Keep warm this Halloween with some spooky orange water, better known as Brewed Witch’s Cider. Boil the water and stir in the orange gelatin mix until completely dissolved. Then stir in the apple juice and bring to a simmer. To give it a Halloween touch, fill a punch bowl with the cider and place the punch bowl in a black cauldron that’s lined with dry ice to give it a brewing, magical effect. Then serve in mugs with cinnamon sticks for an added touch of spice.
For these Halloween-themed infused water recipes make sure you use filtered water. Going the extra mile to make these spooky drinks should be matched with the finest water—that way the real Halloween fun can begin.
