If not, feel free to ask in the comments and I’ll answer the best I can.
HOW LONG DOES IT REALLY TAKE TO MAKE A BLOODY HALLOWEEN COCKTAIL?
This spooky cocktail can be made quickly. This Bloody Halloween Cocktail recipe takes approximately 2 hours and 9 minutes. TOTAL. This includes:
- About 5 minutes to cut the fruit into small pieces
- Close to 2 minutes to add the wine and soda
- Around 2 hours to allow the drink to absorb all of the flavors
- 2 minutes to add some sugar, ice, and garnishes
HOW DO I STORE LEFTOVER BLOODY HALLOWEEN COCKTAILS?
You can store leftover Bloddy Halloween Cocktails in your refrigerator for up to 3 days.
After 3 days the fruit begins to ferment.
WHAT KIND OF RED WINE IS BEST FOR MAKING THIS BLOODY HALLOWEEN COCKTAIL?
You can use a cheap red wine like a box of red wine to make this spooky drink.
The drink will be sweetened with sugar so the wine doesn’t have to be the best quality.
This drink recipe is similar to a sangria so I suggest using Garnacha, Tempranillo, Primitivo, Zinfandel, Bonarda, or Nero d’Avola.
CAN I SERVE THIS DRINK IN A PUNCH BOWL?
You can serve this Bloody Halloween Cocktail in a punch bowl.
I suggest doubling or tripling the recipe depending on the size of the punch bowl.
A punch bowl would really showcase this drink and make it stand out at your Halloween party.
CAN I MAKE BLOODY HALLOWEEN COCKTAILS AHEAD OF TIME?
Yes, you can easily make Bloody Halloween Cocktails the day before serving.
This drink needs to be consumed within 3 days of making it because the fruit will begin to ferment.
Keep the drink stored in your refrigerator until you are ready to serve and then add the mint sprig and ice.
WHAT GOES WELL WITH A BLOODY HALLOWEEN COCKTAIL?
Bloody Halloween Cocktails go well with a wide variety of snacks and other drinks. These recipes would be great to serve together at a party.
Some of my personal favorites include:

Try adding some candy eyeballs to the pitcher or the party punch before serving so it looks extra spooky. YUM!
Can You Make It Into A Mocktail For The Kids?

To do so, use cherry soda or apple cider with red food coloring and add some syrup for sweetness if you want it to be sweet for them as well!
