Green Wicked Witch Cocktail
The full ingredients list and instructions are found in the printable recipe card at the end of this post. 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 cocktail is homage to her!
If you have seen the stage show Wicked, you will know of course 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 soiree, this Green Wicked Witch Cocktail is it!
The green drink gets its color from the various liquors included in the mix – but you can deepen the green with some green food coloring if you so wish.
For an additional magical touch, some silver cake shimmer (lustre dust) goes into it too – spellbinding!
Ingredients Used In This Cocktail
For your convenience, I’ve linked any specialized ingredients needed for this recipe to Amazon below.
This cocktail is shaken, but don’t worry if you don’t have a cocktail shaker, you could just use a container with a tight-fitting lid – like a mason jar or even the cup on a blender or smoothie maker.
More Halloween Cocktails To Make
Want to make more cocktails for Halloween? I think you’re going to love these ones:
Green Wicked Witch Variations
I like to try and give variations on the cocktails shared on The Purple Pumpkin Blog, and especially turning the cocktail into a mocktail so that non-drinkers (and kids if suitable) can enjoy the drink too!
Virgin Green Wicked Witch Mocktail (non-alcoholic)
So that non-drinkers can enjoy a glass of this wicked drink, we can make a few changes. The first being removing the alcohol of course.
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.
I love the Monin brand of syrups as there are lots of flavors and they are a very versatile ingredient that can be used in cocktails, mocktails, coffee, cocoa, shakes, smoothies, and more.
To make a Green Wicked Witch Mocktail, follow the recipe card, but replace the alcoholic elements with the syrups suggested above.
I haven’t made the mocktail version, so I recommend adding the syrups to taste as they may add a sweetness that you may not necessarily get from alcoholic liqueurs.
Frozen Green Wicked Witch Slush
Want to turn this beverage into a frozen slushie? Easy! Put all the ingredients in a blender with a generous amount of crushed ice – then blend till smooth. Serve with a straw, and watch out for brain freeze! You could do the same with the mocktail version too.
Green Wicked Witch Party Punch
Want to make this green cocktail for a crowd? It’s so easy! Here’s how to do it!
As long as 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.
Make sure you add plenty of ice to your serving receptacle of choice to keep the cocktail chilled. Add 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!
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!
This cocktail recipe is intended for adults of the legal drinking age in your country of residence. Please drink responsibly. Do not drink and drive.
