Continuing my tradition of easy-peasy entertaining tips for Halloween I have a 3-ingredient cocktail that can be made in mass!

Today’s cocktail came about from loving the signature cocktail I served a few years ago called the Purple People Eater (well, it was really a purple tears cocktail, but the name sounded better for Halloween as a purple people eater so I changed it for the party!)

Why you will love this Halloween Alcoholic Drink?

  • Easy and festive.
  • Able to make it in batches so you don’t spend a lot of time making them at the party.
  • It’s easy to adapt to a non-alcoholic version if you have company.
  • The drinks are delicious but still fit the Halloween Theme without breaking the bank.

What’s in Ghoul’s Blood aka Halloween Rum Cocktail?

  • Blue Curacao is the liquid that makes this the bright almost glow in the dark blue color! Don’t let the color give you pause…. blue curacao is a non-alcoholic sugar syrup that is a blue color.
  • White Rum is the alcohol in the cocktail, it makes this such a fun boozy halloween drink!
  • Pineapple juice is the tart part of the cocktail. I used canned pineapple juice but have purchased fresh in the past and everyone LOVED it!

Easy ways to Make Halloween Cocktails Festive

When hosting a Halloween party you can do a few simple tricks to make them have a spooky or ghoulish flare. The bright blue sugar syrup does the trick but you can also add fun garnishes.

Gummy eyeballs and gummy ghosts are perfect in place of a traditional martini olive. Just slide them on the end of the martini pic and add one to the martini glass right before serving the drink!

Another way to make them fun and different is to rim the glasses with Halloween colored sprinkles. Cut a slice of lemon or lime then rub the juice along the rim of the glass. Finally, put the sprinkles on a plate then run the rim through the sprinkles.

Non-Alcoholic Ghoul’s Blood Cocktail

If you want to serve a nonalcoholic version — you can add blue curacao to lemonade. It’s still vibrant in color and very festive for the occasion.

I usually make sure to serve the alcoholic version one way in and the virgin cocktail a different way. Using different glasses makes the designation clear to everyone.

In the photos above the highball glass with the ghost gummy is alcohol-free and the martini glass with the gummy eyeball is the regular version.
