5 No BOOze Drinks Inspired by Classic Halloween Films

By now you probably know I’m your mocktail gal. Since I stopped drinking alcohol over 3 years ago, I love a good mocktail, whether it be of my creation or something whipped up by a professional mixologist (yes, they do that too), and there is truly nothing better than a themed mocktail, especially for the holidays. If this is a sentiment you share, then you’ve come to the right place.

All of these mocktails will pair perfectly with Halloween Inspired Straw-Boo-Ries

Freddy’s Nightmare

What You’ll Need

  • POM Wonderful Pomegranate Juice
  • Pomegranate seeds
  • Coconut cream/milk
  • Ice
  • Blender
  • Mint
  • Cinnamon
  • Vanilla
  • (Optional) plastic syringe


  1. Blend 1/2 cup ice with 1/2 cup of coconut milk, 1/2tsp cinnamon, and 1tsp vanilla. I prefer to use canned coconut because it is creamier than the carton variety.
  2. Once you have coconut slushy add it to a cup with (crushed) ice. Layer with fresh pomegranate seeds and juice.
  3. Garnish with mint and a syringe of pomegranate juice

This is a fun, semi-spooky, and super refreshing spin on your classic piña colada cocktail.

Jason’s a Peach

What You’ll Need

  • 2 Peaches (1 for compote, 1 for slices)
  • Olipop Strawberry Vanilla Soda or Rowdy Mermaid Strawberry Basil
  • Fresh basil
  • Strawberries
  • Honey
  • 1/3 water


  1. In a small saucepan bring water, sliced peaches, 1-2 thinly chopped basil leaves, and strawberries to a boil.
  2. Once hot use wooden spoon to muddle fruit. Add honey and stir.
  3. Allow fruit compote to cool.
  4. Once cooled add compote, ice, and strawberry soda.
  5. Garnish with sliced peaches and a few basil leaves.

Peach, strawberry, vanilla yum! When there’s a Jason Voorhees on your trail, there’s no time to waste on tasteless drinks. Enjoy the peachier side of this masked killer with this sparkling delight.

Billy’s Brains

What You’ll Need

  • Raspberries
  • Blackberries
  • Strawberries
  • Mint
  • Agave or honey
  • 1/2 cup Water
  • 1/3 cup Chia Seeds
  • Lime
  • Ginger beer
  • Cherry Juice


  1. Start with your mashed brains: place raspberries, blackberries, mint, agave or honey, chia seeds, and water in medium saucepan.
  2. Simmer until consistency is thick. Take off heat and allow to cool. I made mine the night before and allowed to cool in fridge overnight.
  3. Once chia jelly is cool, add to bottom of favorite glass, fill with ice.
  4. Add a few splashes of cherry juice, and then fill with ginger beer.
  5. Squeeze of lime juice and sliced lime for garnish.

The Monster Mash

What You’ll Need

  • Vitamin C Juice – I am obsessed with Trader “Joes Power of C” juice
  • Coconut water
  • Frozen mangos
  • Tajin
  • Blender (optional)
  • Lime (optional)
  • Pink Himalayan Salt


  1. You can serve these two ways: if you have a blender, blend your coconut water and frozen mangos.
  2. If you are blender-less, just add frozen mangos as you would ice cubes.
  3. Layer (crushed) ice tajin, more ice and then add your vitamin C juice.
  4. Light squeeze of lime juice and (less than) a pitch of sea salt. Enjoy!

This is a not-so-scary supercharge to your mocktail hour. Enjoy this refreshing vitamin-C boost while watching your favorite Halloween baking show or basking in an outdoor fall leaf peeping stroll.

Sydney Cider

What You’ll Need

  • Unsweetened apple juice
  • Cloves
  • 1-2 fresh apples (cubed)
  • Cinnamon sticks
  • Orange
  • Nutmeg


  1. Bring unsweetened apple juice to a boil (measurements based on preference)
  2. Add cloves, cinnamon sticks, orange zest, fresh cubed apples, and nutmeg. Let simmer on low heat for 15-20 minutes. Allowing time for flavors and spices to blend.
  3. Serve with slice of orange and cinnamon stick.

They may be the most basic photos here, but definitely not the most basic drinks. This flavorful cider packs a fall-fresh punch. Enjoy it hot with a sweet treat side dish for full effect.
