3 Hauntingly Healthy Halloween Drinks

3 Hauntingly Healthy Halloween Drinks

By: Baylee Maust

Every year we’re tempted by sugary treats that make it tough to stay healthy and hydrated. Many fall parties often have an array of Halloween cocktail choices filled with unhealthy juice and sugar. That’s why we’ve put together some frightfully delicious drinks to keep you hydrated through your Halloween haunts! These festive waters look spooky, have tons of flavor, and are super healthy for you and your guests. Take your health-consciousness a step further and create your drinks with our Brio Water Coolers for carefully filtered, clean water that is safe for you and your family. 

Get ready to wash down all that yummy candy corn with these three spooky recipes! 

  • Watermelon and Strawberry Vampire Blood
  •  

    There are two kinds of people in the world: those who adore friendly fall vibes and those who love ghosts and gore. If you can appreciate a bit of horror, you’ll love this vampire-blood water recipe. But don’t worry, this fruit infused water doesn’t bite like a real vampire. In fact, it’s quite delicious! 

    This recipe calls for two health-boosting ingredients: strawberry and watermelon. In addition to tasting great and looking spooky, these fruits have a variety of health benefits. Strawberries are an excellent source of vitamin C, manganese, and potassium. They’re also known to reduce inflammation and improve cholesterol for a healthier heart. Watermelon is great to add natural sweetness while containing an array of nutrients. There’s vitamin A and vitamin C packed in each bite, which can improve muscle pain and boost digestion. Although these fruits are sweet, they're low in calories, making them ideal ingredients for refreshing and healthy infused water.

    You will need: 

    • 1 pitcher of fresh, filtered water
    • ½ pint of sliced strawberries
    • 2 slices of cubed watermelon

    Step One: Cut the strawberries in half. Then, cut two thick slices of watermelon into cubes. 

    Step Two: Add your “blood” ingredients to your filtered water pitcher. You can add ice to speed up the chilling process or stick it in the fridge and serve later. 

    Tip: Use the cold water function on your Brio cooler to dispense crisp, cold water for immediate serving.

  • Lychee and Blueberry Eyeball Water 
  •  

    Spook your party guests with this chillingly creepy infused water recipe. The blueberries stuffed inside the lychee fruit will look like loose eyeballs swirling around in a witches brew or evil scientist’s concoction. But the best thing about these eyeballs is that they are packed full of healthy antioxidants and vitamins! Little kids (and adults) can enjoy a refreshing, fruity drink that has low calories and adds to the Halloween spirit.

    Lychees are filled with fiber, Vitamin B, and magnesium, which increase metabolism, prevent aging skin, and relieve stress. Blueberries are super sweet and tasty, while remaining low in calories and high in fiber, vitamin C, and vitamin K. Their properties are known by experts to protect against cancer, high cholesterol, and high blood pressure levels. 

    You will need: 

    • 1 pitcher of fresh, filtered water
    • 25 lychee, peeled and pitted
    • 25 blueberries

    Step One: Start by completely peeling the rough skin and removing the pits from the lychee fruit until they are completely white. 

    Step Two: Insert the blueberries into the empty cavities of the lychee to create an eyeball effect. 

    Step Three: Place the “eyeballs” into fresh filtered water and serve to your goblins and ghouls! 

  • Kiwi, Cucumber, and Lime Slime Water
  •  

    This bright green fruit-flavored water will look amazing among your Halloween spread. The colorful kiwi and cucumber combined with fun, refreshing citrus fruit will give this water a sweet and tangy flavor. Add this mixture to a decorative mason jar or pour it into plastic vials to make it look like the secret ingredient to a magic potion.

    Kiwi and cucumber contain tons of vitamin C, fiber, and vitamin E. They are great at boosting digestion for weight loss, improving metabolism, and strengthening blood circulation. Lime contains a plentiful amount of potassium, vitamins A, B, C, and calcium, all of which promote an array of health benefits. The vitamin C and antioxidants in limes can even strengthen your immune system, which is optimal during the colder months of fall when common colds and infections spread faster. 

    You will need: 

    • 1 pitcher of fresh, filtered water
    • 3 kiwis
    • 1 cucumber
    • 1 lime 

    Step One: After cutting and slicing your kiwis, cucumbers, and limes into circular rings, add them to your cold water pitcher and serve right away or chill in the fridge for a few hours. 

    Step Two: Thoroughly combine the “slime” mixture to show off a vibrant spooky green illusion to your party guests.  


    Common colds and sicknesses that spread faster during the fall season prevent us from celebrating spooky festivities while we recover. Staying hydrated and healthy becomes a lot easier and fun when you add a few of your favorite fruit pieces to fresh, filtered water. These refreshing water recipes are a fantastic substitute to sugary artificial apple juice, lemon juice, and pineapple juice drinks often served at most Halloween parties. Infused water is a fun way to celebrate Halloween in a safe and healthy way indoors. 

    Your Brio Water Cooler can help you craft creative drinks by providing filtered water for all happy haunts to enjoy this fall season.
