Here’s a cute and spooky punch for your Halloween parties this season. This easy punch recipe has an orange creamsicle flavor which is amazing all year. Top with whipped creamed ghosts for an adorable Halloween drink.
Like the goblin goo green punch, this orange punch is also quite simple and delicious. It’s perfect for any non-scary celebrations for kids. The ghosts are too cute to terrify anyone. If someone does get spooked, they can just slurp the ghost away and laugh!
Orange Spooky Punch for Halloween
Making this orange creamsicle punch is incredibly easy. You basically just add all the ingredients besides the topping to a pitcher and serve.
However, the ghost toppings on this one are a little more challenging. Because the ice cream floats in the cup, the little ghosts tend to flop or tip over. Pay attention to the order in which we do things here. For best results, use small cups and put the straw in the cup before creating the ghosts.
It’s worth the trouble for the adorable ghosts. But just like real ghosts, they can disappear in a flash! 😉
Ghost Punch Ingredients
Here’s what you need to make this orange punch recipe. The measurements are in the recipe card below.
- Orange drink: I used Hawaiian Punch Orange Ocean, but any similar orange drink will work.
- Lemon lime soda: This adds flavor and gives the punch some fizziness.
- Orange creamsicle ice cream: You can also use orange sherbet.
- Whipped topping: Be sure to thaw out the tub.
- Mini chocolate chips: These are for the ghost eyes.
How to Make the Orange Punch topped with Ghosts
Pour the orange drink and the lemon lime soda into a large pitcher.
Add 4-5 scoops of the ice cream or sherbet and set it aside.
Add a small scoop of ice cream to each serving cup. Pour in the punch and place the straws into the cup.
The ghost will sit on the scoop of ice cream. Be sure to add the straw. If you add the straw after making the ghost, it can cause it to move and tip over.
Place the thawed whipped topping into a pastry bag and snip the tip. You want the tip to be about 1″ wide.
Pipe the ghosts on top of the ice cream.
Create the ghost eyes by adding two chocolate chips to the whipped cream ghost.
Be sure to serve immediately, because the ghosts can droop quickly!
