When searching for a Halloween Blood Punch, I noticed that they were almost all adult-friendly, so I decided to create my own kid-friendly Halloween Blood Punch, because after all, our costumed vampires deserve a bit of blood too.
If you know me, I’m all about easy recipes that take you in and out of the kitchen in less than thirty minutes. You may remember my devilishly delicious black lemonade that I created a few years ago with Madison’s help, and this year was no exception.
Madison enjoys being in the kitchen as much as I do, so when I mentioned that I was going to make a vampire punch, as she had plans on being a Vampira this year, she was all down. This kid-friendly Halloween Blood Punch, or Vampire Blood Punch, as she likes to call it, is super easy to make, and the kids will love it too!
Get ready for some spooky fun with this delicious and easy-to-make Halloween Blood Punch. Not only is it tasty, but it’s also a fantastic addition to your Halloween party with its vibrant red color that resembles ‘blood’ – perfect for the season of scares!
Ingredients & Supplies Needed:
- 4 cups of Dark Cherry Juice
- 1 cup of Apple Juice
- 3 cups of Grape Juice
- 1 cup of Pineapple Juice
- ¼ cup of Grenadine
- Blood Bags For Drinks
- Start by chilling all your juices and grenadine in the refrigerator for at least a couple of hours before you plan to serve the punch.
- In a large punch bowl, combine the dark cherry juice, apple juice, grape juice, and pineapple juice. Stir well to mix all the flavors together.
- Slowly pour in the grenadine, stirring constantly. You really don’t need to use the grenadine, but I enjoy adding it to give my punch a more spooky blood-red color.
- Once that is done, simply fill your blood bags as per the directions. The kids will have a blast doing this.
If You Decide to Use a Punch Bowl
- Add ice cubes to help keep the punch cool. You can also use an ice ring made from additional juice if you want to keep the punch chilled for longer without diluting it.
- Garnish the punch with gummy worms and eyeballs for a fun and spooky Halloween touch. These can be added directly into the punch bowl, or you can put a few in each child’s cup for a special surprise.
- Serve the punch chilled, ideally between 35°F and 40°F. Use a ladle to pour it into cups, making sure each serving gets a good mix of all the ingredients.
- Ingredient Substitutions: Try using cranberry juice or pomegranate juice for a different flavor profile. You could also add in some lemon or lime juice for a bit of tartness.
- Presentation Alternatives: Instead of blood bags, you can use a traditional punch bowl or serve your blood punch in a clean, plastic cauldron for a witch’s brew theme. If you’re thinking of using mugs or glasses, you can freeze gummy worms in ice cube trays with water and use them instead of regular ice cubes for an extra spooky surprise in each glass.
- Garnishes If Using Glasses: For the garnishes, feel free to get creative! You could use gummy candies like spiders or bats, or even freeze some candies in your ice cubes for a fun surprise as they melt.
Enjoy your Halloween party with this spooky, fun, and tasty Halloween Blood Punch! The kids will enjoy putting these together and drinking from something besides a glass or mug. Remember, the key to a great Halloween punch is to balance the flavors and make it fun for the kids.
