We’re all about easy Halloween cocktails and these purple gin and tonics are one of the easiest to make because they only consist of four easy ingredients: tonic water, acai powder, gin, and lime.

To give it a little spookiness we added acai which is the ingredient that turns them purple! It’s actually good for you too!

How To Make Purple Gin & Tonic

  • In a cocktail shaker with ice add in the gin, lime juice and acai powder.
  • Shake for 30 seconds with ice so the acai can turn the mixture purple. 
  • Fill two small glasses with ice and strain the gin and lime mixture over the top.
  • Top off with tonic water and garnish with a purple flower.
  • If using dry ice, add a piece to the cocktail before serving.

The Perfect Halloween Cocktail For A Party

Purple Gin and Tonics would be a great signature Halloween cocktail to serve at a party, pumpkin carving evening or Halloween movie night.

Depending on the size of your cocktail shaker (I suggest having a large one on hand), you can pre-shake and make the gin, lime and acai mixture and strain it into a jar to serve later.

The purple coloring we added is açaí powder and it turns the Gin and Tonic the most gorgeous shade of purple!

You just add it to the lime juice and gin in a cocktail shaker and shake it for 30 seconds with ice.

It works beautifully and leaves small specks of purple throughout the cocktail, adding to the spookiness!

You can’t taste the açaí, but the good thing is the vitamins from the powder are still present in the cocktail. Cheers to that!

Make Your Halloween Cocktail Extra Spooky!

For the ghoulish smoking look, we used a chunk of dry ice. If I serve dry ice in a drink, I usually will serve it with a straw so you can be sure your guests won’t drink the ice.

The neat thing is, once the dry ice is placed in the drink, it immediately becomes warmer, creating the smoking effect.

Be careful and use ice manufacturer’s directions when using dry ice. Never touch it with bare hands and always use gloves and tongs.

Tips For Making Our Halloween Gin & Tonic

  • Shake until the shaker is ice cold, so you know the ingredients are mixed.
  • You can pre shake the gin, lime and acai mixture ahead of the party. Strain into a jar to serve later.
  • If preparing ahead of time remember to put the ice in when you serve, so it doesn’t dilute the cocktail.
  • If using dry ice, never touch it with your bare hands.
