Do you just put out the same ol’ beer and wine for your guest? Not this year! Halloween is the perfect occasion to whip up a creative yet spooky drink. Not only that, but this one is super easy to pull together, making it a must-do for your Halloween party! So how do you make this green potion cocktail? Follow the steps below and you’ll be well on your way to concocting the perfect green potion.

Here’s the first trick! To get that spooky neon green color, you combine blue Curacao (a citrus-flavored cocktail mixer) and pineapple juice! The combination is also quite tasty.

Instructions
  1. Combine rum, vodka, blue Curacao and pineapple juice in a cocktail shaker. Shake until combined and strain over ice.
  2. Make this cocktail your own! Add additional pineapple juice. Top with a splash of lemon-lime soda. Omit the vodka or rum for another alternative. Give it a splash of midori melon liqueur. The possibilities are endless for this fun Halloween cocktail!
  3. A note on dry ice: It is completely safe to include dry ice at the bottom of a large punch bowl or individually served cocktails. However, be sure not to touch it directly. Always use gloves or tongs to pick up the dry ice. A little goes a long way, so you can use an ice pick to break up a larger piece into small ones. Drop a small piece into each cocktail just before serving and watch the magic!
