This Witches Brew Punch recipe is so festive and fun! Made with only 3 ingredients, it comes together in a snap and is so delicious and perfect for any Halloween party!
Last week I spent almost an hour in the store – in the Halloween aisles. The manufacturers have put their best marketers to work and they have their sites on easy targets like me. No idea has been left unpackaged. Well of course I need a candy corn cake pan, witch cookies, and ghost napkins! And how could I live without a brain jell-o mold and pumpkin string of lights!
It’s all just so much fun – the decorations, the costumes, and of course, the candy. My kids are past the age of trick-or-treating and now just help me man the door for the neighborhood cuties.
Since having peanut allergies in our house, I’ve had to get creative with other sweet concoctions over the years. This Witches Brew Punch is one of them and always a big hit!
What’s in Witches Brew?
You only need 3 easy ingredients for this Witches Brew recipe! (Scroll down for the complete printable recipe.)
- Chilled pineapple juice
- Orange sherbet, softened
- Chilled orange soda
How to Make Witches Brew
It couldn’t be easier to make this punch. You simply get out your favorite punch bowl, stir together the pineapple juice and sherbet until sherbet is dissolved. Then just before serving, slowly pour soda into the juice mixture. Ladle into cups and enjoy! That’s it!
You can have individual cups ready to go if you’re throwing a party where there will be kids, or allow adult guests to scoop their own.
Witches Brew Recipe Variatons
- Make a lime version – ditch the pineapple juice, orange sherbet, and orange soda and use 7UP, lime sherbet, and limeade concentrate instead.
- Pour in some booze for an adult drink! I recommend Malibu Coconut Rum. Vanilla vodka would be delicious, too.
- Add in a floating frozen hand – fill a latex glove with water, freeze until solid, remove the latex and place the hand in the punch bowl right before serving
This drink is super delicious and refreshing and not limited to Halloween – make it for any get together!

Reader Questions and Reviews
absolutely delicious!! thanks for sharing!
It was a hit at last year’s party with guests of all ages
I served this (whipped up tout de suite in a plastic black ‘cauldron’) at my first daughter’s elementary school halloween party and a little kid came up out of nowhere and asked, “Did you make this?” “Yes” I answered. “Well, It’s awesome!” , he replied. That’s all you need to know.
What kind of rum is best or this recipe please?
Hi Heather – I’m not a rum connoisseur, but I’m sure Captain Morgan or Bacardi would be fine. I haven’t tried either, since it was intended to be a kid friendly drink.
Thanks!!! :). Making it for kids more than likely but was just curious!! Thanks
I did a roundup of fall recipes on my blog (http://www.acedarspoon.com/15-fall-recipes-part-2/) and added this drink..I love it! Such a great idea.
Great Halloween colors! I going to link to this in my upcoming Halloween recipes post.
I am not sucking the fun out of this, but if you substitute organic pineapple juice, organic orange sherbert and orange soda not made with corn syrup but cane sugar, you are making it better for you, for the environment and it will taste worlds better~!
If I can buy natural pineapple juice, sugar free orange soda and
reduced fat sherbet, I’ll try it! The rum sounds good, too.
You should post pictures of your cuties in costume! Hope you’re able to decide whether to venture out with them or stay put and let other cuties come to you. It seems like a tough call.
This is something good for kids. I like it like that. How about adding vodka after the kids had their share? I think this drink will rock with vodka too…Thanks!
I love how you garnished it with a slice of orange. So pretty. I think you need to tint this sucker a horrible color to scare off the kiddies ;)
Your house sounds a lot like my house when I was younger. My three younger siblings were all deathly allergic to all nuts. Although my sisters have grown out of it, my brother has not. I still find myself checking labels on the off-chance my brother stops by my house unannounced! I’m very careful when I’m baking not to contaminate anything. And my dad always had enough Reese’s Cups and M&M’s to last through at least Thanksgiving after we went through my younger siblings’ loot! :-)
And I love how you think! Adding rum so the adults don’t feel left out. :-)
That looks shockingly like beer…I was pretty sure it was, in fact, until you said you served it to Haley…and I know you’re not THAT kind of parent! It sounds awesome though…I’d choose it over beer any day.
And if you have any extra Reese’s you need to get rid of, I’ll gladly take care of them. Anything for Haley!
I’m down for the rum!!! John & I fight over who hands out the candy! What ever is left, is never a problem, we buy candy we like! LOL
The rum sounds great but how much would you add to this recipe? :)
Hi Alexis – I’m not a drinker, so I asked my husband who comes from a long line of bar owners (!). He said: for best taste it’s about 1 part rum to 3 parts soda, and since you’re also including the pineapple juice, maybe 20 ounces. Start there, taste, and adjust.
