From adding dry ice for a creepy effect to glowing green soda, it’s time to let out your inner mad scientist and go crazy with the cocktails. Keep reading for 10 festive and campy Halloween punch recipes you’ll want to serve up to your victims guests. ;)

1. Pumpkin Punch: There is no punch bowl more appropriate than an actual hollowed-out pumpkin. Garnish each glass of the rum, orange and pumpkin punch with a cinnamon swizzle stick. (va Honestly Yum)

2. Ghost Punch: Whipped cream and a cookie cutter bring spooky floating ghosts to life. Freeze these ghouls overnight and place them in the grape juice punch right before serving. (via Better Homes and Gardens)

3. Cemetery Slime Punch: Basically a giant root beer float, this punch is not only delicious, but it’s also cool to to look at. Sprinkle in a bag of gummy worms for a creepy treat. (via HGTV)

4. Glow-in-the-Dark Punch: Turn off the lights and watch the punch bowl become the life of the party. Green food coloring and lemon-lime soda give this brew its eerie glow. (via She Knows)

5. Shrunken Head Cider: Make a girls’ night out of it and have everyone carve their own apple to add to the bowl. Once carved, bake for 90 minutes and press a clove into each eye socket. (via Martha Stewart)

6. Zombie Repellant Punch: Okay, you probably wouldn’t find this punch at a swanky soiree, but with Scream Queens on TV and Hocus Pocus on our DVR, we’re reveling in the camp. Ward off the walkers with a glass of this tangy punch. (via She Knows)

7. Worm-Infested Ice Cubes: When creating a ghoulish beverage for Halloween, regular ice cubes just won’t do. Add a handful of gummy worms to your mold before freezing and take your beverage to the next level. (via Brit + Co)

8. Haunted Halloween Punch: This non-alcoholic punch will please everyone from the old witch to the tiny princess. Orange slices and a spice bag are simmered in apple cider for 20 minutes before a chunk of dry ice is added to achieve a spooky fog effect. (via Living the Country Life)

9. Halloween Sherbet Punch: Big scoops of orange sherbet and Sprite come together to make a concoction so delicious, it could even be considered dessert. (via The Casual Craftlete)

10. Swamp Juice: Once you’ve nailed the three-ingredient base recipe, feel free to add in as many candy eyeballs, worms and spiders as your black heart desires. (via Tablespoon)
