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

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…

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.
If you want to ramp up the spooky look, you can even use Dry Ice In Drinks for Halloween.
Cocktail Ingredients & Equipment
- Vodka – Use your preferred brand of Vodka.
- Midori – A 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 Curaçao – A 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 Shimmer – For an additional magical touch, some silver cake shimmer (luster dust) goes into it too – spellbinding!
- Maraschino Cherries
- *Green Food Coloring – You can deepen the green color of the cocktail with some green food coloring if you so wish.
- 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
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.
- Instead of Vodka, use Strykk Not Vodka.
- Instead of Blue Curaçao, use Lyre’s Orange Sec, or Blue Curaçao Syrup
- Instead of Midori, use Melon Syrup
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!
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!
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.
Setting Up Your Cocktail Bar
When setting up your bar or cocktail serving area, you could include the following:
