How to Make Swamp Water Drink with Gummy Worms

What is in a swamp water drink? We assure that you will not be scavenging actual swamp water for this punch recipe. All you’ll need are citrusy soft drink concentrate, lemon-lime soda, pineapple juice, and lots of gummy worms. For this punch recipe, we’ll be using artificial flavorings, however, we have a solution if you want to maintain a healthy fruit drink. Scroll down to our CAQ and you’ll find the answers you need for a nutritious fruit drink! 

Aside from our recommended ingredients, you can always use your own substitutes. Sprite makes a great alternative for the lemon-lime soda and we’re sure gummy bears, gummy crocodiles, or any gummy candy you can find will work just as fine.

For a bone-chilling punch recipe, throw in frozen fruits like strawberries, cherries or blueberries to add surprise texture and taste. Of course, you can always use plastic eyeballs, spiders, and the like but make sure they’re edible or you’re sure the kids won’t mistake them for a snack.

Our easy punch drink is not complete without the gummy worms. Although you can always use any gummies your heart desires, gummy worms just create that spooktastic fear with the kids. Apart from a party punch recipe, we can also teach you how to make gummy worms from scratch!

For a less sweet yet yummy gummy worms treat, our Sugar-Free, Low Carm Gummy Worms Recipe is just for you. If you find lemon-lime a hauntingly delicious flavor, our Homemade Lemon-Lime Gummy Worms Recipe works fantastically well for this simple punch recipe.  

Don’t be spooked and try out this festive punch drink. You can even substitute the orange-flavored drink mix with any prepared, non-carbonated orange drink if you want to avoid artificial flavors. No bundt pan? No problem! Make a batch of this easy punch recipe in an ice cube tray. Pop a gummy worm inside each square, pour the orange drink and let it freeze overnight. Throw them in a tall glass and pour your lemon-lime and pineapple juice mixture to serve yourself a drink. In fact, you can even try this out in a cupcake tin! 

Now, before we can go ahead and learn how to make a punch, you might want to serve an eerily decadent dessert to balance out the sour drink. Our Oreo Dirt Cup Recipe is a creamy cup of oreo goodness that truly fits the frightening, swampy theme. So, let’s head right into brewing a batch of swamp water drink!

Commonly Asked Questions

Can I make this an alcoholic punch recipe?

Yes! In making your spiked punch recipe, remember to make your ice rings alcohol-free. One of the things you can do is infuse your gummy worms with the liquor of your preference, allowing them to soak for at least 4 hours. Press the worms into the bundt pan, as stated in the recipe, and continue the rest of the process. You can also replace the soda, pineapple juice, and lemon-lime mix with your desired alcohol mix. Easily a spiked punch and the ice ring makes a great chaser too!

I don’t want to use artificial flavors for my punch. What substitutes can I use?

Actually, you can still use juice concentrate without resorting to artificial flavors. Just look for products with 100% juice concentrate. But you can use any fruit juice you have on hand without completely altering the taste or texture. Just keep an eye out for the nutrition labels, making sure there’s no sign of preservatives or artificial sugar. You can also go for a variety of citrus flavors like orange, lemon, lime, and grapefruits to retain the essence of a sweet yet sour fruit punch.


This punch recipe puts a haunting twist for Spooktober! An assortment of sweet gummy worms floats upon a cloudy swamp water drink that’s fruitily sour to taste. This yummy fruit punch recipe is a non-alcoholic drink you can brew with the kids so, eat, drink and scare away!
