Decorating tips for spooky Halloween drinks

Even though many of our drinks already look great, you can create the right spooky vibe with a few spooky tricks and literal eye-catchers.

  • Eyeballs in a glass - variation 1: slice olives and freeze them in (round) ice cube molds. Particularly suitable for spicy drinks such as Bloody Mary.
  • Eyeballs in a glass - variation 2: peel the lychees, cut a hole in them and fill with blueberries! The slippery surface makes your lychee eyes look deceptively real.
  • Ice-cold pleasure: round ice cubes look like a full moon in a glass, especially in dark or black cocktails such as the Black Widow. Careful, not for werewolves!
  • Also good: the hand of death! Fill disposable gloves with water and freeze them. Be careful, if they are treated with tallow, turn them inside out first!
  • Cold fog: dry ice! The wafting mass always looks good at Halloween parties. However, caution is advised here, as dry ice is not at all harmless. So it's best to only use it if you already have experience with it.
  • (Un)friendly faces: cut grimaces into fruit and decorate drinks and cocktails with them. Carved apples look great in cider or apple punch, cucumber monsters give your Basil Smash or Mule that Ghostbusters flair!

Täuschend echt: Litschi + Blaubeere = gruselige Deko-Augen für deinen Halloween Cocktail!
Deceptively real: lychee + blueberry = spooky decorative eyes for your Halloween cocktail!
