Pumpkin Punch bowlDepending on the number of guests you are expecting for your party this Halloween, you will likely have to find a very large pumpkin. However, the preparation could not be easier! With a serrated knife, cut off the top fourth of the pumpkin. Scoop out the pulp and seeds with a large spoon, and thoroughly scrape the inside walls of the pumpkin. Then, either fill the pumpkin with a cider moonshine punch, or fill with ice, and leave bottles of your favorite beer inside to chill.
Bloody Shirley TemplesTurn your favorite childhood drink into a new Halloween staple that your guests will love by adding a few easy props. Purchase unused syringes from a local pharmacy, and fill with a combination of your favorite moonshine or vodka and grenadine. Fill glasses half way with Sprite, and prop the syringes against the sides of the glasses. Your guests can shoot their tasty mixture into their drink themselves! Refill the syringes if you are dying for seconds!
Pumpkin KegAnyone can serve their guests pumpkin beers. Instead, why not present everyone’s favorite fall-time beer in a homemade pumpkin keg? All you will need is a large pumpkin and a spigot. Draw a large circle with about a three inch radius around the stem of the pumpkin, and cut with a large carving knife at an angle. Carve out all of the insides of the pumpkin with a spoon, and scrape the sides clean. Cut a hole near the bottom of the pumpkin that is slightly smaller than the spigot, and insert it tightly. Fill the pumpkin with your favorite Oktoberfest brew and serve to your happy guests. Or, try making a fall festive punch with your own homemade moonshine.
Halloween Ice TraysIf you don’t have the time to transform a pumpkin into a perfect drink dispenser, you can easily give any beverage the Halloween spirit with some festive ice trays. Whether you favor a skull and crossbones or you want to get a little more grim with these brain shaped ice cube trays, the options are endless.
Halloween brings out the child in all of us, and it is the perfect excise to have a little more fun with your drink presentation. What is your favorite way to serve your home brew on Halloween? Let us know in the comments!
