The Jolly Vampire

Try this yummy Halloween drink recipe for your bat themed Halloween party. This drink is a kid-friendly recipe that uses yummy cherry soda and candies to give it a nice fruity taste.

Ok, you may not think jolly when you think vampire, but this yummy Halloween drink inspired by our bat-like friend will make you smile with delight. This is an easy drink recipe you can mix up for your fun Halloween gatherings this year.

There is nothing like a blood red Halloween drink to get your bat themed party flying in the right direction - particularly since this recipe gets candy involved! Carry the theme of your Bat Scare invitation into your drink - both with the recipe itself and the cute printables to decorate it!

Simple and easy to make, our Jolly Vampire mocktail or cocktail is perfect for the busy hostess trying to pull off the perfect Halloween party with very little time to spare.


1 Liter Bottle of Cherry 7up

12 Red Jolly Ranchers

Red Twizzlers for sipping



Next, add the ice and the Cherry 7up.

Before serving, garnish the glass with two Twizzler candies for guests to use as sweet straws.

Alternatively, skip the Twizzlers and add a little sparkle to each glass by garnishing the glass rim with the crushed Jolly Ranchers before adding the ice and Cherry 7up.

To make this a Halloween cocktail for an adult, we recommend adding a splash of vodka - particularly one flavored to match the tasty Jolly Ranchers you use! Watermelon, cherry or strawberry are all good choices!
