This green Halloween punch recipe for adults is exactly what you need to raise your guests’ SPIRITS and get the party started! It’s got Midori, coconut rum, pineapple juice, and club soda. Give it a creepy name, and double or triple the recipe for a crowd.
When you need punch with alcohol to serve a Halloween party, make this recipe and serve it from a punch bowl, a drink dispenser, or as a pitcher drink.
Green Goblin Punch
The green melon liqueur and coconut rum flavor combination makes this a delicious year round recipe, and the club soda gives it effervescence, which I always love.
I’ve served this cocktail punch a few times at both Halloween and Christmas parties, and guests love it. It has sweetness, but not overly so.
It’s a good idea to make two batches if you have a larger crowd. Serve the first batch and keep the second one in the refrigerator until the first runs low. This way it will stay cold longer.

Best party tips
- Set up a Halloween beverage bar decorated with spiders, snakes, spooky cloth, and skulls.
- Place the punch bowl on a silver tray for an old world feel that Dracula would be proud of.
- Help keep the punch cold by floating a frozen “hand” inside. Just fill a rubber glove with water, tie it securely, and freeze for at least 24 hours. Then peel the glove off the ice before serving – careful around the delicate fingers!
- Provide themed ice shapes for guests to use in their glasses. I love this variety set (affiliate link).
- Embellish everyday wine glasses with Halloween decorations and glue dots. I used mini skeleton hands, but you can also use scrapbooking items from the craft store, googly eyes, plastic spiders and insects, etc.
- Use dry ice to create a special effect, and follow my dry ice tips below.
How to use dry ice for Halloween punch
Dry ice is one of our favorite tools for creating a spooky element for Halloween. Here are some very important things to know in order to use it safely.
First of all, many grocery stores have a dry ice cooler near the regular ice bags cooler, where you can get your own. Make sure you take an insulated cooler with you, and a pair of gloves in order to get it yourself.
- Store dry ice in an insulated cooler with the lid shut securely.
- Use gloves, tongs, or a towel to handle the dry ice.
- Break blocks into smaller pieces using a hammer. A few small pieces the size of a quarter will give you a foggy effect in the punch bowl, and lasts about 3 to 5 minutes.
- You can place a large piece into the punch to make the fog last longer.
- Let it evaporate completely before drinking.
- Allow for adequate ventilation when working with it because dry ice evaporates into carbon dioxide.
PARTY TIP: The cooler the liquid is, the slower the dry ice will sublimate (evaporate).
- Never touch the dry ice with your skin. It can burn and irritate the skin.
- DO NOT drink or swallow dry ice! Let it evaporate before drinking the punch it has been in.
- Don’t let children play with it.
- Don’t store dry ice in the freezer unless the power is turned off. Otherwise, the fan inside will cause the ice to evaporate.
PARTY TIP: A 5 to 7 pound block of dry ice can be stored in a cooler for about 18 to 24 hours. Keep this in mind when planning.
