Halloween can be fun for all ages. What would Halloween be without the delicious treats? Halloween is a great time to let the creativity flow in the kitchen. Creating Halloween themed drinks can be quite simple to prepare to require time for preparation. Regardless, any of these suggestions would be a hit with your guests, both adults and children.
Goblin Goo is a hit not only among the kids but with adults as well. It takes some preparation, but it is well worth the fun. You can use tall glasses or clear plastic cups. The clear plastic cups are great for party settings, especially with children.

- 2 pkg. (6 oz.) grape or orange flavor gelatin
- 4 cups cold water
- 2qt. (8 cups) cold prepared grape or orange flavored kool-aid

- Next, pour in the cold water and stir.
- Place the bowl in the refrigerator for 4 – 5 hours or until the jello is solid and firm.
- Take a fork or spoon and break apart the jello. You can use a crisscross motion or simply stir.
- Spoon jello into tall glasses, but only fill halfway.
- The pour the kool-aid in the glass.
Serve with Halloween straws.
Variations could include substituting cold seltzer water in place of regular water for the kool-aid preparation.
Also consider layering the drink mixture. To do so, simply layer the jello flavors and use a lighter colored kool-aid such as orange.

Nothing more classic for Halloween than the boo shake. There are a variety of ways to prepare a boo shake. First, start by using your favorite milkshake recipe. This could be plain vanilla, vanilla chocolate chip, or any other shake recipe that is white or cream in color.
You can create ghostly faces on the glasses by using a few techniques. The simple way to create faces is to use clear plastic cups. You can then use a sharpie to create faces on the outside of the cup. Some people attack stickers or construction paper cutouts.
One of the tastiest ways to add ghostly faces, is to use a paintbrush and chocolate. Melt some chocolate chips in the microwave and dip your paintbrush in the melted chocolate. Paint faces on the inside of the cup or glass. Then place it in the refrigerator for a few hours so the chocolate will harden. Then pour your favorite milkshake flavor in the glass and top with whipped topping and a straw.
