These drinks are clean and kid-friendly and you can easily make a separate version for adults by adding a few jiggers of liquor that complements the flavor of the drink.
Layered Halloween Drink (Our Thrifty Ideas)
This Layered Halloween Drink recipe from Our Thrifty Ideas is a great drink idea and its beauty is all based on the science of sugar content. The basic idea is, you combine three drinks with different sugar content. The one with the most sugar sinks at the bottom while the one with the least stays on top.
"You will want to pick about 3 different colored drinks, all with varying sugar contents. You can find this on the nutrition information guide on the back of your bottles."
- clear soda
- energy drink
- orange citrus drink

You can easily change the flavors of this drink by using clear soda with any colored juice you prefer - purple-colored grape juice is another great idea for Halloween!
"Kids love the color and, well, get pretty excited about the *stars of this drink*, those wiggly gummy worms, too!"

Bloody Shirley Temples (This Grandma Is Fun!)
If you like your Halloween Party to be extra creepy, this Bloody Shirley Temples recipe from This Grandma Is Fun is definitely a drink you should try in your party. Is essentially a simple Shirley Temple recipe, but instead of mixing in the grenadine, it's left to sink at the bottom of the cup with an extra shot of grenadine in a syringe.
"While some kids may get grossed out about the syringes filled with pretend blood (Grenadine), most of them are going to think it is awesome and have a blast squirting the blood into their drinks."
