Halloween floating eyeballs dress up your drinks in a spooky and delicious way! They’re perfect for children’s drinks or “groan”up cocktails.
I’m sharing another simple Halloween party project in preparation for my Grumpy Cat themed pumpkin carving party. As I mentioned last week I’ve teamed up with Friskies & Pet Smart to host a party where we’ll be carving pumpkins using a Grumpy Cat stencil.
Serving Halloween food and drinks is really all about the presentation and these “monster eyeballs” are just the thing to have floating in your punch or cider. You won’t believe how easy they are to make and how quickly they come together. You can even call the “cat eyes’ for a creepy play on our theme.
Get the easy instructions below, and keep reading to find out how you can get in on the #Grumpkin carving fun and share your Grump-O-Lantern masterpiece!
Halloween Floating Eyeballs:
- 1 can Lychee fruit in syrup, drain and pat dry
- 1 bunch of grapes
I found my Lychee fruit at Whole Foods. See how much they actually look like eyeballs with their texture and color! They’re also ready to stuff as they have that hole in them already.
- Just start stuffing the grapes inside the lychee fruit. Use the smallest grapes so you don’t tear open the lychees.
- I liked to place the grapes so their stem side is facing out. That adds to the look of an iris I think.
- The grapes will stay inside but if you feel the need to secure them, just use a toothpick that you cut down to size.
You can float the “eyeballs” inside clear drinks or skewer a couple on to a pick and place it on the side of the glass. And of course, you can eat them too!

I love quick and easy ideas like this. You can save the juice the lychees are packed in, make these the night before, and store them back in the juice in a covered container. Then pull them out the next day and you’re ready to go!
