I have to give my kids credit for this idea. I was driving along with all four kids, bummed that I forgot the orange juice for a witch drink that I wanted to create. Don’t you hate it when that happens? They were in shock that I would consider anything “orange” for a bloody drink! They were just so disappointed in my thought process! So, I got to thinkin’ of some other possibilities. That’s when a light bulb went off, and the Vampire drink was created! I’m so glad the kids knocked some sense into me, because this is way cooler than my orange juice idea! 

Here’s What You’ll Need for a Kid Friendly Vampire Drink Idea. 

2 Ingredient Kid Friendly Vampire Drink for Halloween

  • 2 Liters of Clear Lemon Lime Flavored Soda, such as Sprite
  • Cherry Kool-Aid liquid (the concentrated stuff) – they sell little squeeze bottles of Kool-Aid
  • Ice Cubes – lots!

That’s it!

Now:

2 Ingredient Kid Friendly Vampire Drink for Halloween

The way I see it is…you have 2 choices, here – 

2 Ingredient Kid Friendly Vampire Drink for Halloween

  • Either pour the entire 2 liters of soda into a pitcher or even more lemon lime soda into a punch bowl with plenty of floating ice
  • *Make sure you pack the container – glass or pitcher full of ice. The stacked ice really forces the Kool-Aid into the crevices and makes a cool effect
  • (a good way to judge how much Kool-Aid you’ll need for a larger container is 1 squeeze per 8 oz. of soda)  
  • Then place your vampire fangs on top of the ice, or drape them over the side of the container

  • Just before guests get ready to drink…squeeze some cherry liquid Kool-Aid into the soda for a very cool blood effect
  • Watch as the Kool-Aid makes is way down to the bottom in a bloody trail through the ice  and then just kind of hangs there suspended in the soda!

  • OR

  • Pour soda into individual glasses that are full of  ice
  • Place fangs on top of the ice, or drape them over the side of the cup
  • Then squeeze the liquid Kool-Aid into the glasses of soda
  • You just need 1 squeeze for 8 oz. of soda – the Kool-Aid will make it’s way down through the crevices of the stacked ice giving a very bloody effect
  • Bam! You’re Done! Don’t you love the easy stuff?!
  • Don’t forget to again, watch as the Kool-Aid makes a bloody trail through the ice and then hangs suspended in the soda! 

*Eventually, after seeing your cool drink transform before your eyes, most of the Kool-Aid will spread throughout the soda and the soda will take on a layered look. Amazingly, some of the soda will still stay separated from the Kool-Aid. The top half will probably turn a blush color, then red, then clear. The drink starts to combine as you move it around.  If you let the drink sit, it will happen more gradually. I timed my drink that was sitting on the counter,  for about 1/2 hour and it was still not mixed entirely. That cool definition was still there. The Kool-Aid and soda mixed together tastes delicious  – kind of like a Shirley Temple.

  1. I love this idea! Do you have an idea of how much kool aid you ended up using per 2L of soda? I’m wanting to do this on a larger scale and am trying to plan ahead. Thanks!

    • Hi Megan. Thank you so much. I did not use that much, and certainly had some left over. You’ll definitely only need one bottle of the concentrate. When I was ready, I just gave it a good squeeze – on the inner side of the pitcher, and kept an eye on it. I didn’t want it to overtake the soda completely. I wanted that wide line of red. It really is cool how the red just starts to take a mind of it’s own in there and swirl up. The Kool-Aid is really concentrated, and the red (although it does end up giving the soda a delicious flavor), is mainly for effect. Basically, for flavor purposes, you’ll want 1 squeeze per 8 oz. There is enough concentrated Kool-Aid in one bottle to make 23 (8 oz.) drinks. Make sure you have your ice floating on top, and your vampire teeth where you you want them. The Kool-Aid should be the very last component. Eventually, after sitting for a long period, the red will take on more of a layering effect. You’ll see a blush color mixed at the top, red toward the bottom and probably clear soda all the way down at the bottom. So, like I mentioned in the post, wait until your are ready to go, before adding it. My favorite is at the beginning, when the red is oozing down.:) I hope this helps.

  2. This drink is so cool. My grandchildren will love it. We’re looking for Halloween posts to feature on my Sunday’s Best Linky party. I would love for you to share this post.
