Poisoned Apple Halloween Cocktail

Poisoned Apple Halloween Cocktail

This Halloween I wanted to try my hand at a Poisoned Apple Halloween Cocktail!

I could not think of a better spooky cocktail that mixed apples and spite, but a Poisoned Apple Halloween Cocktail. This super easy and eye appealing cocktail can be made several ways, fresh cider or bottled juice. I personally like using the ruby red colored Snapple Apple drink for the visual appeal, plus it comes in a diet version for those of us watching our sugar in take. While I was considered pre-diabetic a year ago, I am currently no longer considered pre-diabetic, due to some amazing therapeutic medications I have been taking, however I am still remaining vigilant to make sure I do not go back. 

The poisonous Halloween recipe is VERY simple for a easy, yet tasty drink on the fly. You can keep the items stocked right in your pantry for an easy to create cocktail any night of the week:

Single Serve Cocktail

  • 8 oz  Snapple Apple
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp orange zest
  • 2 oz Bourbon
  • 1/2 cup crushed ice -shaken
  • Apple slices (optional)

The Party Punch Bowl Option

  • 1 gallon or 128 oz or 8 bottles of Snapple Apple
  • 5  Tbls cinnamon
  • 5 Tbls Orange Zest
  • 16 oz  or 2 cups Bourbon
  • Ice Ring- use a bundt cake mold and fill with colored red water, cored apple slices, orange zest, and plastic spiders for visual effect. Then freeze until it make a floating ring of doom.

Designer Tips- While you can use dry ice; I personally DO NOT like using dry ice inside of drinks just because of the chemical compounds inside of the ice itself. I have used it around the base of the drink stands and punch bowls to gain the same kind of visual effects.

If you want a brighter red color, add in 2-3 drops of red food coloring or 1-2 drops of blue if you want a funky purple color. Either of these colors would be acceptable Halloween festive colors to be honest. You can also use dry ice if you want to make it a spooky punch bowl and add in spider ice cubes. Seriously the possibilities are endless.
