I highly recommend reading the blog post all the way through so that you don’t miss any tips or substitution suggestions and to ensure that you have all the ingredients and equipment required as well as understand the steps and timings involved.

Think of all the famous witches in the world; which one stands out as the most wicked?

It has to be the Wicked Witch of the West, right? Well, this spooky drink is an homage to her!

If you have seen the stage show Wicked, and the untold story of the Witches of Oz, you will know that she wasn’t always that way…

So, if you’re throwing a Wicked-themed party for Halloween or just need an awesome signature cocktail to serve at your spooky event, this Wicked Witch cocktail is it!

Wicked Witch Cocktail

What’s so bewitching about this cocktail is its vibrant, bright green color, achieved through the use of Midori and Blue Curaçao*.

Midori is a melon liqueur with a sweet flavor, and when mixed with the tart flavor of Blue Curaçao, the drink becomes a perfect balance.

Adding a sprinkle of silver cake shimmer dust brings in that wow factor that’ll leave everyone spellbound.

Cocktail Ingredients & Equipment

The ingredients and tools in this recipe are conveniently linked to online retailers like Amazon or Amazon Fresh.

  • VodkaUse your preferred brand of Vodka.
  • MidoriA sweet, bright green-colored liqueur made musk melon and yubari melon.
    • It was made exclusively in Japan until 1987. Its name is the Japanese word for “green” (Wikipedia)
    • Don’t confuse it with other green liqueurs like Crème de Menthe or green Chartreuse Liqueur, as these both have radically different flavors.
  • Blue CuraçaoA liqueur flavored with the dried peel of the bitter orange laraha, a citrus fruit grown on the Dutch island of Curaçao. It is dyed blue, which gives an “exotic” feel to cocktails.
  • Orange Juice
  • Lemon-Lime Soda
  • Silver Cake ShimmerFor an additional magical touch, some silver cake shimmer (luster dust) goes into it too – spellbinding!
  • Maraschino Cherries
  • *Green Food ColoringYou can deepen the green color of the cocktail with some green food coloring if you so wish.

Cocktail Equipment

  • This cocktail is shaken, but don’t worry if you don’t have a cocktail shaker!
  • Use a container with a tight-fitting lid—like a mason jar or the cup on a blender or smoothie maker.
  • Halloween Cocktail Skewers – for skewering cherries and other fresh fruit.

Green Wicked Witch Variations

Here are some variations of the original cocktail recipe you might like to try.

Virgin Wicked Witch Mocktail (Non-Alcoholic)

So that non-drinkers can enjoy a glass of thisbright green drink, we simply remove the alcohol and replace it!

Mocktail for Kids

Using simple ingredients from your grocery store, you can make this delicious drink for kids.

Mix equal parts orange juice and lemon-lime soda with some green food coloring and silver cake shimmer. Serve over ice with a cherry on a stick.

Mocktail for Adults

For adults, you can use some flavored syrups to bring in some of the flavors of the original cocktail, such as Blue Curaçao Syrup, and Melon Syrup

To make a Green Wicked Witch Mocktail, follow the recipe card, but replace the alcoholic elements with the syrups suggested above.

I recommend adding the syrups to your taste as they may add the sweetness you may not necessarily get from alcoholic liqueurs.

Wicked Witch Mocktails with Non-Alcoholic Spirits

For adults who would still like to enjoy the taste of alcohol in their mocktail, non-alcoholic spirits are a good option.

In the UK, try Lyre’s, which is also available on Amazon in the UK and Amazon.com.

Other brands include Strykk (UK) and Ritual (US & Canada). Non-alcoholic spirits are a growing trend, so be on the lookout in your local stores and online.

Follow the recipe card using the non-alcoholic alternatives listed above instead of the alcoholic ones.

Again, I recommend adding the syrups to your taste as they may add the sweetness you may not necessarily get from alcoholic liqueurs.

You may need to add additional green food coloring to the fruity cocktail mixture.

Frozen Green Wicked Witch Slush

Want to turn this spooky cocktail into a frozen slushie? Here’s how!

Put all the ingredients in a blender with a generous amount of ice – then blend till smooth.

Serve with a straw, and watch out for brain freeze!

You can do the same with the mocktail version too.

Green Wicked Witch Party Punch

Want to make a big batch of green cocktails for a party or gathering? It’s easy – here’s how!

If you use the same measuring container (glass, cup, jug, etc.) for the “1 part”, the ratios will be correct, and you can make as much as you need to.

To make a big batch of Green Wicked Witch Party Punch, mix together:

  • 3 parts Vodka
  • 1 part Midori
  • 1 part Blue Curaçao
  • 6 parts Orange Juice
  • 6 parts Lemon-Lime Soda
  • Silver Cake Shimmer – enough to make the drink shimmer!

Serve the large batch cocktail in drinks dispensers, or pitchers, or go retro and serve it from a punch bowl!

Add plenty of ice to your serving container to keep the cocktail chilled. Add some maraschino cherries in there too.

You could also skewer the fruit onto Halloween cocktail picks for guests to garnish their glasses of drink.

Speaking of which, place cocktail glasses in the bar/serving area along with a filled ice bucket, straws, stirrers, and cocktail decorations if suitable!

Saving Leftovers

While it’s best to enjoy the cocktail fresh to savor its flavors, you may have some left at the end of your party—don’t let it go to waste!

  • Transfer it to an airtight pitcher or container in the refrigerator for 1-2 days.
  • Or, to make it last longer, turn it into Wicked Witch Granita!
  • Granita is a semi-frozen dessert made from sugar, water, and various flavorings. Originally from Sicily.
  • Transfer the cocktail to a shallow freezer-safe container and place it in the freezer for 6 hours (or overnight). You can add some simple syrup or another sweetener if desired.
  • Use a fork to break the frozen cocktail into small pieces. Serve and enjoy!
  • Or pour the mixture into ice cube trays and freeze.
  • Use the cocktail cubes to chill and flavor future cocktails without diluting the drink.

When setting up your cocktail bar or serving area, you could include the following:
