Halloween [1] is usually all about the costumes and decorations, but there's an important piece that's sometimes overlooked: punch. It's a must have for any child or adult party, give or take your favorite booze. Just remember to up the spook factor with garnishes like gummy worms and handmade blood for the ultimate holiday drink.

Scary Cherry Fizz Punch

Surprising guests will be easy with this fizzy vegan concoction. The sparkling white wine, pomegranate juice, and ginger ale may seem safe, but a dash of cayenne [2] creates a spicy kick.

The name says it all. This Morguerita [4] calls for — you guessed it —tequila, triple sec, and lime, but is made all the spookier with homemade blood dripping down the glasses.

Swamp Juice

Consider it more like chilled cucumber avocado soup [6] with extra ingredients like green onions and cayenne pepper. But serve it on Halloween [7], and the green mixture takes on a new life of its own.

Vampire Punch

Lime sherbet, pink grapefruit juice, and club soda make up this simple drink, but the blood is even easier to create. [9] Just dip glasses into a mixture of corn syrup and red food coloring.

Blood Apple Cranberry Cocktails

The good thing about this Halloween drink recipe [13] — made up of cranberry juice, sparkling cider, and vodka — is that you can serve it hot if it's especially cold out. Just warm it up in a large black pot — the perfect impromptu accessory!
