What’s Halloween without a Halloween punch?! Our spiked Jolly Rancher punch is perfect for a crowd and full of fruity, candy flavors without being too sweet! It’s the most delicious punch for a Halloween pumpkin carving night, a Halloween movie night, or even a fall harvest party.

I’ve made this recipe for our Halloween parties for years. Not only is it a total hit, but it’s super easy to make using nothing but juices and vodka. No mixing, muddling or even refilling. This Halloween punch makes enough for a crowd.

It tastes like a yummy Jolly Rancher, but not as sweet. When you’re hosting a party and you have many guests coming in and out, it’s almost impossible to create individual cocktails for each person. A festive punch is the best option for parties.

Whip up this punch, pour it into a punch bowl or dispenser, add ice about 10 minutes before everyone arrives, and watch your guests enjoy this yummy spiked punch! It’s the perfect addition to our Halloween bar!

How to Make Jolly Rancher Halloween Punch

This Jolly Rancher drink is easy, I mean it’s REALLY EASY! Simply add all of the ingredients into a large punch bowl or dispenser, add ice, and mix!


Sparkling Apple Cider – Martinellis is what we use.

Raspberry Vodka or Passion Fruit Vodka

Pineapple Juice – Use 100% pineapple juice.

Cranberry Juice – Sweetened cranberry juice. Unsweetened is too tart and bitter.

Ginger Ale – Any ginger ale will work, even sugar-free.

What goes in a Jolly Rancher Drink?

There’s nothing too complicated or fancy in this Halloween Punch, and you can easily grab all of the ingredients at your local store.

To get that Jolly Rancher flavor, mix pineapple juice, cranberry juice, apple cider, and ginger ale, and then spike it with either passion fruit or raspberry-infused vodka.

Easy Halloween Punch

Sometimes you need a punch recipe so you’re not having to spend loads of time in the kitchen, and that’s why punches are great.

You can make them before your guests arrive and they can help themselves throughout the night.

Another tip, make extra and store it in the fridge to quickly refill the punch bowl during the Halloween party. However, this recipe does make a lot, but if you never know if you’ll need more!

Tips for Making Our Jolly Rancher Halloween Punch

  • Add the ice ten minutes before your guests arrive so it doesn’t dilute the drink.
  • Use big ice cubes, as they won’t melt as fast.
  • Decorate the punch bowl/dispenser with cobwebs and skeletons!
  • Prepare the punch the day you plan to serve it and keep it covered in the fridge until you are ready to serve it.
  • If you don’t have a large enough punch bowl, then store some of the punch in a pitcher in the refrigerator.

Candy Straws

We love using a black licorice stick as a straw for this drink. Just cut the top and bottom off the licorice and cut it to the size of the glasses you’re serving the Halloween punch in.

What to Serve with Party Punch

Try any of your favorite Halloween snacks! I like to serve this punch with a variety of Halloween appetizers and finger foods. Here are some of my favorites:

  1. Im making this for a halloween party but was wondering if we can use another flavored vodka like strawberry? Or will that alter the drink too much?

  2. 5 stars
    Wow this is a great punch!!! I bought diet juice for the cranberry and pineapple and it tasted delicious! It wasn’t too sweet but had a nice flavor. I will definitely be making this again. This is an easy recipe for any occasion. 😋

  3. 5 stars
    This sounds like a great recipe but I’m curious, how many ounces in a bottle of Sparkling Cider? I found a few different bottles with different amounts in them, just wondering if you had a more exact amount.


  4. The vodka I have on hand isn’t fruit infused. Will this make much difference to the taste? If so, how can I work around this? Thank you!

  5. 5 stars
    Um yes, please!! This spiked punch was awesome, I could drink tons of these!! I am hosting some friends this weekend and will defiantly be making this again!!

  6. Hi there.. I just ran across this recipe it sounds great.. except I’m allergic to pineapple ? and all citrus fruits.. it’s a bummer and has its difficulties when it comes to trying to find new drinks or shots.. so with that being said, what else could I use in place of the pineapple?

    This will be the 3rd year in a row I make this for our Halloween party! Everyone goes nuts over it! Thanks for the recipe! It tastes great especially for those that don’t have much of a taste for stronger alcoholic drinks (beer, whisky, etc.). It’s not too sweet either which I like. It also might be dangerous because you can easily drink too much! I change some of the drinks to diet and adding dry ice makes for a real fun affect!

  8. 5 stars
    Ok seriously how cute is this drink recipe?!! This reminded me of when I used to drop a jolly rancher in my Zima bottle back in the day lol!! This drink definately gets me in the festive spirit!! Can’t wait to try!!

  9. 5 stars
    What a fun drink! And I love that it’s so easy to customize it for the adults. This would be great for summer parties too

    I can already see how this punch can be used outside of Halloween – it is perfect for so many themed parties. I am sure everyone will love it!

  11. How is it almost Halloween already? Thanks for the reminder that . You are right, why would I make an individual cocktail,I’d rather lessen my stress by making this punch. I will add more booze and let the kids stay out of it, or I mad hide it where the “legals” can drink this.
