Halloween Brew: Black Eye Punch

With Halloween party planning well under way, it’s time to start thinking about a party essential: drinks! Though individual drinks are great, they can be time-consuming to make if you haven’t hired a bartender. At the same time, it’s a nice touch to prepare a special concoction to serve at your party. If you want a Halloween party punch recipe that will frighten and delight your guests, try this Halloween punch recipe for black eye punch.


Black eye punch for Halloween is a terrific and frightful beverage to serve at your Halloween party. Though some Halloween punch recipes can be complicated or messy, for this easy Halloween punch recipe, you’ll only need:
  • 2 cups of sugar
  • 3 quarts of water
  • 1 13-ounce envelope of unsweetened grape soft drink mix
  • 1 13-ounce envelope of unsweetened orange soft drink mix
  • 1 liter of ginger ale
  • Eyeball candy or eyeball ping pong balls
To concoct this black eye punch recipe, just combine the sugar and water with the envelopes of soft drink mixes. Stir until all of the ingredients are completely dissolved. Right before serving, add in the ginger ale and several pieces of eyeball candy or eyeball ping pong balls to float on top of the punch (the “black eye” part of the punch!).

For a creepy effect, try adding sour worms to the sides of this Halloween party punch. You can also add gummy worms inside the drink itself for an effect that is both chilling and sweet! Stay away from the sour gummies here, because the sour sugar may taste strange inside the punch.
