Halloween Mocktail Recipe

Posted by

We thought we'd share the recipe of a fun Spooky Mocktail that we have created that you can serve to freak your guests out!

Full of fruity fun flavour it tastes great and looks gruesome!

You'll need...

1 1/2 punnets strawberries

2 litres of fresh Cloudy Apple Juice or Nippy's Tangy Lemon if you like it sour!

2 heaped tablespoons caster sugar,

Red food colouring

1 tablespoon of cornflour

3 tablespoons water

A tin of Lychees

A punnet of Blueberries

Some mint sprigs and short skewers to garnish.

First up, place the caster sugar, cornstarch, food colouring (to your preferance) and the water in a small saucepan. Bring to the boil and stir until it begins to thicken. Remove from heat and allow to cool a little. 

Dip the very rims of your glasses in this mix whilst still warm but starting to cool. Wait a few seconds and then turn the glass over, watch the gruesome red dribbles dry on your glasses! 

Next, puree the strawberries. Add them to any remaining sugar and cornstarch mix you have left in the saucepan and reheat them. You want this mix to thicken and cook. Allow to cool. 

Pour the juice into the glass until 2/3 full. Using a dessert spoon carefully spoon the strawberry mix into the bottom of the glasses. This is why the strawberrries needed to be cooked... pureed fresh fruit will float... this mix will sit at the bottom of the glass. Carefully and slowly top up the glasses with the rest of the juice. 

Make eyeballs by rubbing a little of the jammy mix over the drained lychees and putting a blueberry into the hole where the seed was. Secure it with a skewer through the side. Alternatively you can freeze your eyeballs into ice cubes to float in the drink!

Garnish your drink with eyeballs and mint... eeew!

Get your guests to stir in the strawberry puree before drinking... delicious!
