What is a Witches Brew cocktail?
The Witches Brew drink is one of the most popular Halloween cocktails around. It’s packed with delicious tropical and melon flavours and is a brilliant little party trick to play on your guests. The name comes from its colour – a scary-looking neon green concoction that will remind you of a witches’ brew. You can choose to shake it up as a cocktail (or mini-cauldron, if you will) or turn it into a bewitching punch for guests to help themselves.
There’s a little witch in all of us, so if the broom fits, jump on and make this cocktail!
What do you need in making the Witches Brew cocktail?
To become a cauldron-stirring witch, you’re going to need a big punch bowl, or cauldron if you happen to have one lying around. Then you’re going to need the first magic ingredient: melon liqueur. This is the potion that will turn your Witches Brew drink terribly green. (Insert cackle here). You will also need orange liqueur, fresh lemon juice, and dry ice. Now you’re nearly set.
How to make a Witches Brew cocktail?
If this is your first time experimenting with dry ice, here are some super important safety tips to keep in mind. Rule number one: do not touch the dry ice! Use gloves when handling it and tongs when dropping it into the drink. Rule number two: do not eat or swallow the dry ice. Not ever. The dry ice cube will dissolve in the drink within 5 minutes once it is done showing off. Rule number three: tell all your guests about rules number one and two before serving your Witches Brew drink! Read our guide to using dry ice safely for more tips and tricks.
