Tips on Making Witches Brew Punch

The witches brew drink is a very common punch served at spooky parties alongside Halloween dinner dishes. In this kid-friendly version, we level up the fun with the use of dry ice! It keeps the drink cold while providing the spooky billowy smoke which is the gold standard of holiday drinks. Wing it and amaze the kids when you make them at home with these tips.

  • Handle dry ice using thick, sturdy gloves and tongs; do not touch it with bare hands. Dry ice is extremely cold and could cause frostbite.
  • Use big chunks of dry ice. While dry ice doesn’t really dilute the flavor of the drink, it could cause harm when ingested. Compared with smaller dry ice pellets, using bigger pieces will provide the smoke effect and will cool the drink but with fewer chances that kids will swallow them.
  • Customize your witch’s brew using different colors of Kool-Aid or by incorporating other fruits and fun ingredients like mandarin oranges, mangoes, lemon slices, gummy bears, gummy eyeballs, and gummy worms. You can also add chia seeds for an added novelty.
  • Serve your witches brew drinks in shot glasses, witch brew mugs, or cauldrons to really represent the spooky theme!

A tangy and sweet witches brew punch with refreshing bits of pineapple and crunchy chocolate is just what the witch ordered! Try out this unique punch for the next spooky party.

Frequently Asked Questions

What other sodas can I use in place of the Squirt Soda?

Any other lime or lemon-flavored soda will work amazingly with our witches brew recipe! Some recommendations you can use are 7 Up, Sprite, or Mountain Dew.

Is it safe to put dry ice in my witches brew?

Rest assured that it is perfectly safe to do so! You will need to buy food grade dry ice, which will be safe to consume. The dry ice will sink to the bottom of your punch bowl and will help keep your drink cool while also giving off that steam effect. Make sure to keep the kids’ hands (and yours) off the dry ice directly! Keep in mind to wear sturdy gloves when handling dried ice to avoid frostbite.

How do I store my dry ice?

Never place your dry ice in the freezer or refrigerator. Keep them off the counter as well to prevent your countertop from cracking. Instead, store them in an insulated container or styrofoam with the lid lifted in just the slightest to allow airflow.
