Halloween Party Drink for kids

I published the first version of this drink idea a few years ago. My kids helped me realize that I was going down the wrong path with my orange juice idea.  They were in shock that I would consider anything “orange” for a bloody drink. 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.

The last couple of Halloween seasons, I’ve tried to perfect the drink idea.

The drink is fun and tastes good, but I struggled with the fact the technique I was using made it difficult to  prepare ahead of time. The drink was easy enough for a fun “at home with the family” drink. If you are going to use this idea at parties, you can’t very well go around squirting red Kool-Aid into everyone’s drink.

Over the past two years, I’ve tried freezing the Kool-Aid into little ice cubes and even into vampire’s teeth. Both ideas were complete flops. This year, I tried using an idea that I have been thinking of – fill a syringe with the Kool-Aid and it worked like a charm. Trust me when I say, I tested it over 1 dozen times. I even made a video for you, which I will upload ASAP.  Anyway, enjoy the new and improved Vampire Drink for Kids, Teens, and Adults.

2 Ingredient Kid Friendly Vampire Drink for Halloween


Kid-Friendly Halloween Vampire Drink Recipe | Kid Friendly Things To Do

  • Author: Melissa
  • Prep Time: 5 min.
  • Cook Time: 0 min.
  • Total Time: 5 minutes
  • Yield: 1 dozen 16 oz. glasses 1x


  • 2 Liters of Clear Lemon Lime Flavored Soda, such as Sprite
  • *Sprite is definitely my preferred soda. I’ve tried it with others, and the taste just wasn’t the same
  • Cherry Kool-Aid liquid (the concentrated stuff) – they sell little squeeze bottles of Kool-Aid
  • Medicine Syringes – (Viles for blood)
  • Ice Cubes – lots – enough to pack each glass or cup
  • cups or glasses that are clear to see the Vampire drinks in their full glory


  • Squeeze some of the concentrated Kool-Aid into a bowl
  • Fill medicine syringes – each with about 2 ml. of Kool-Aid
  • 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
  • Give out syringes of Kool-Aid concentrate – 1 per glass of soda filled with 2 ml. of kool-aid
  • The kids shouldn’t have to squeeze the syringes of Kool-Aid into their drinks. They should just stick the syringe of Kool-Aid into the drink. The Sprite should actually pull the Kool-aid out of the syringe all on its own. They can just sit back and watch as the Kool-Aid makes it’s way down through the crevices of the stacked ice giving a very bloody effect


*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.

    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.
