Spider's Blood Sangria
This gorgeously spooky sangria can be served with or without alcohol and is served best in our Personalized Toxic Spider Glass Decanter Set and Witchy Woman Tipsy Wine Glasses.
Start by cutting up your fruit. Slice up two apples, an orange, one lime, and one lemon and then add them to your decanter. We added one fruit at a time to create a fun ombre of colors in our Sangria.
Add three cups of grape juice if you're making it virgin, or three cups of red wine if you're making it with alcohol. Then add three fourths of a cup of apple and orange juice, and one and a half tablespoons of lemon juice.
Cool your Spider's Blood Sangria in the fridge. Then, just before serving, add two to three cups of Sparkling Mineral Water.
Mix it all up and then serve in our Personalized Spider glasses that come with the decanter set or as shown here in our Witchy Woman Tipsy Wine Glasses!

Spider's Blood Sangria Recipe:
- Start by cutting up your fruit. Then layer the fruit in your glass pitcher. If you’re going to make a Sangria, it HAS to be in a glass pitcher/decanter, so that everyone can see all the pretty colors! :)
- Next add 3 cups of grape juice. (substitute grape juice for red wine for alcoholic Sangria)
- Then add 3/4 cup orange juice and 3/4 cup apple juice.
- Add in 1 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice.
- Gently mix together. Refrigerate at least 4 hours. Preferably 6-8.
- Right before serving, add 2-3 cups of Sparkling Mineral (Carbonated) Water. Mix sangria together and then serve!
This adorable pumpkin mixture can be served with or without alcohol and is of course served best in our Jack-o-Lantern Stemless Wine Glasses.
Mix canned pumpkin and apple cider in a blender and then pour contents into a large pitcher. Then open two bottles of cream soda (preferably with an adorable bat-shaped can opener).
Next, pour two bottles of cream soda into your canned pumpkin and apple cider mix. Then sprinkle a generous amount of pumpkin pie spice into the mixture. From here you can choose to drink the Pumpkin Punch as-is or add alcohol. If you are adding alcohol, we recommend either Vodka, or Spiced Rum.
Then, stir contents within the large pitcher and pour into your Jack-o-Lantern Stemless Wine Glass for the perfect pumpkin look. Top off the glass with a hefty helping of whipped cream, dusted with pumpkin pie seasoning.
Now your pumpkin punch is ready to serve alongside some homemade pumpkin pie. Check out our other blog post, "How to Set a Sophisticated Halloween Table" for tips on how to best display your Halloween beverages!

Pumpkin Punch Recipe:
- Apple Cider
- Canned Pumpkin
- Cream Soda
- Pumpkin Pie Spice
- Vodka (omit Vodka for non-alcoholic drink)
- Whipped Cream
This frightfully green concoction can be served with or without alcohol as well, and is of course served best in our Full of Boos Decanter Set. A great addition to any of these haunted beverages is one of our chalkboard signs like our "Drink Up Witches" design, or our Pick Your Poison design. Giving a fun Halloween-themed name to your drinks and food will help set the mood at your Spooky Soiree.
First pour roughly one third of a teaspoon of Matcha Powder into a pitcher. Then add two bottles of cream soda and watch as the matcha powder bubbles up into a Mary Shelly-type creation of Halloween-goodness. Drink as-is or add 12 oz of vodka, or gin to the mixture.
Then add dry ice (using tongs - do not touch or consume dry ice, wait until it has dissolved to drink) to our Personalized Decanter. Pour the matcha powder and cream soda mixture over the dry ice into the Decanter and enjoy the show! When ready to serve add dry ice to the Personalized Glasses and then pour the smoking mixture into each cup! Serve and enjoy!
