  • 24 ounces orange seltzer (2 cans)
  • ¼ cup cherry juice
  • 2 sliced oranges
  • 2 sliced apples
  • ⅓ cup maraschino cherries
  • 1 cup ginger ale or ginger beer
  • Ice cubes

If you’re feeling a little spooked to mix your first mocktail, this festive drink from How Sweet Eats couldn’t be easier and takes very little total time! Stir everything up in a large punch bowl and garnish with orange slices, apples, and cherries. 

Make it the ultimate Halloween punch recipe by serving it in a pumpkin-shaped bowl.

  • ½ cup canned coconut milk
  • ½ cup plant milk of choice
  • ¼ cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 tablespoon apple butter
  • ¼ teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 3 tablespoons agave or maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 Golden Oreos (or cookie of choice)
  • Whipped cream

This pumpkin-spiced mocktail from Plantifully Based is anything but basic. Invite your friends over to watch the trick-or-treating and treat them to this super pretty Halloween drink recipe. Make this one completely vegan with non-dairy whipping cream to top it off.

Homemade Butterbeer

  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 3 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 2 liters chilled cream soda
  • 5 tablespoons butterscotch (plus more for topping)
  • 2 tablespoons butter extract

This version of the Harry Potter classic from Play Party Plan is the perfect kid-friendly Halloween drink. (But let’s be honest, we adults make up most of the fan base by this point!) Just go easy on this one, as it’s definitely a dessert beverage. 

If you’re dealing with a warmer October than usual, semi-freeze the cream soda first to turn it into a slushie.

Fall-Inspired Non-Alcoholic Sangria

The perfect Halloween cocktails don’t all have to be spooky. Our favorite fall sangria combines all of your favorite seasonal flavors into a delicious party punch for a more sophisticated Halloween gathering.

We love our Surely Brut in this one for some added fizz. If you love bubbles, substitute sparkling apple cider for the classic stuff. A solid non-alcoholic sangria is a must for any at-home sober bar menu. 

Caramel Apple Mocktail

  • Homemade caramel sauce
  • ⅓ cup raw sugar
  • 7 ounces ginger beer
  • 7 ounces apple cider
  • Cinnamon sticks for garnish

There’s a bit more prep time with this recipe from Savor the Flavour, especially if you make the homemade caramel sauce, but the result is a rich, alcohol-free delight. Top with a cinnamon stick to make this one of your more whimsical non-alcoholic Halloween drinks that is sure to impress.

Bloody Temple

  • 1 ounce cranberry juice
  • ⅓ ounce grenadine
  • 3 ounces lemon-lime soda
  • 1 ounce ginger ale
  • Food-safe syringes
  • Ice

This memorable fruity mocktail from Love to Know makes classic Shirley Temples a little ghoulish with the main ingredients packed inside plastic syringes. The result is a delicious drink for all of the adult goblins at your Halloween party! Sub pomegranate juice for cranberry, if you prefer.

Smoking Halloween Mocktail

  • 2 cups apple cider or apple juice
  • 2 cups orange juice
  • ½ teaspoon orange zest
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 2 tablespoons simple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons mulling spices
  • Dry ice

Spooky Halloween mocktails are the perfect time to break out dry ice. Top this spooky drink from This Vivacious Life with gummy worms or eyeballs to play up the scare factor for the whole family or a cinnamon stick for a more chill vibe. 

The fruit juices will even give you an unexpected dose of vitamin C. (That’s not very scary, now is it?)

Candy Corn Sipper

  • White: Pineapple coconut juice
  • Orange: Orange juice, mango juice, citrus fruit punch
  • Yellow: Vitamin Water, lemonade, pineapple juice
  • Crushed ice

This layered mocktail from Boulder Locavore is meant to look like candy corn, but feel free to play with the layers if you’re not able to find certain ingredients. It’ll still taste yummy with pineapple juice vs. pineapple coconut juice, for example. You just won’t have that distinct white layer.

Witches Brew

  • 2 liters of ginger ale
  • 1 cup pineapple juice
  • 1 quart lime sherbet
  • Sliced limes, gummy worms, etc. for garnish
  • Green food coloring

If you love a lime non-alcoholic punch, this spooky version from Lil’ Luna kicks things up a notch with its finishing Halloween touches. Skip the food coloring if you don’t need it to be so vibrant, or make it orange with orange juice and scoops of orange sherbet.

Black Sugar Halloween Mocktail

  • 3 cups grape juice
  • 2 ounces lemon-lime soda
  • 1 ounce simple syrup
  • 1 ounce orange juice
  • Splash of lime juice
  • Black sugar
  • Blood orange slices
  • Red grapes

The black sugar rim on this one turns a fall beverage into a Halloween mocktail with very little effort. To cut some carbohydrates and reduce your total sugar, sub in tonic water or our canned Surely Brut in place of the soda. The fruit juice and sugar rim keep this one sweet!

Slow Cooker Mulled Apple Cider

  • 1 gallon apple cider
  • 1 large sliced lemon
  • 4 cinnamon sticks
  • 2 teaspoons peppercorn
  • 2 teaspoons cardamon pods
  • 2 whole star anise
  • 4 inches fresh ginger
  • ¼ teaspoon salt

Reward yourself for planning ahead with this flavorful, slow-cooked cider from Sugar and Charm. Add your favorite spirit alternative at the end if you’re serving adults, or keep it as-is for a family affair. Don’t toss the star anise and cinnamon sticks before serving. They make a great garnish. 

Red Smash

The Red Smash is one of our favorite blood-red mocktail recipes for adult Halloween soirees. This one blends non-alcoholic bourbon with our canned bubbly red for a mocktail that’s subtly sweet and big on fizz. 

Play with the garnishes of your smash to match the vibes of your event. We like topping this one with fresh fruit like blackberries or raspberries, but a pair of vampire fangs may be a fun idea for your next Halloween party to stay on theme!
