Mocktails can be just as delicious as fancy cocktails. The Bloody Shirly is the perfect drink to serve at a kid's party or as a non-alcoholic option for adults who don’t drink. You’ll need an ounce of cranberry juice, ½ ounce of grenadine, 3 ounces of lemon-lime soda, one ounce of ginger ale, and a food-safe syringe.
Mix the cranberry juice and grenadine in a cup and draw it up into a syringe. Serve the lemon-lime soda and ginger ale over ice in a rocks glass and top it with a syringe. Guests can empty the bloody mixture, creating a creepy and interactive drink.
Buffalo Chicken Eyeballs
Your guests will be aghast at these creepy appetizers. These buffalo chicken meatballs from Ree Drummond are easy to make in bulk and are ready in no time. Among the ingredients are ground chicken, panko bread crumbs, and buffalo sauce. The recipe also has optional ranch dressing, which you can color red to look like gooey blood for the party.
Transform the meatballs into eyeballs by using half of a mozzarella ball and an olive stacked on top of each other. Serve on a skewer to drive home the creepy factor.
