Sanderson Sisters 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.
I’ve got another cocktail to pay homage to the Sanderson Sisters this year with this cocktail called Amok Amok Amok!
Make a glass of this bright green drink to sip on whilst watching Hocus Pocus, or as the signature cocktail for your Hocus Pocus themed Halloween party! (Here are 31 Halloween Party Themes to check out)
The mixture of the liquors and juice create the green color, but you can add a little green food coloring if you want to.
A spellbinding touch to the drink comes from some silver cake shimmer – also known as lustre dust – which is shaken up with the drink to create a magical effect!
So channel your inner Winifred, Mary or Sarah and conjure up this cocktail! And make sure you try the original Hocus Pocus Cocktail too!
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:
Amok Amok Amok! 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 Amok Amok Amocktail! (non-alcoholic)
So that non-drinkers can enjoy a non-alcoholic version of the Sanderson Sister’s cocktail we will start by removing the alcohol of course.
For kids, shake together equal parts orange juice and pineapple juice, with a drop of green food coloring and silver cake shimmer. Pour over ice and top up with lemon-lime soda. Garnish with a maraschino cherry.
For adults, you can use flavored syrups to replace some of the alcohol flavors such as:
- Blue Curaçao Syrup – to replace the alcoholic version
- Apple Syrup – to replace the apple brandy
- Spiced Brown Sugar Syrup – to replace the rum
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 an Amok Amok Amocktail! 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 Sisters 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.
Amok Amok Amok! Party Punch
Want to make this witchy 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 maraschino cherries in there too.
You could also skewer the fruit onto 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, stirrers, and cocktail decorations if suitable!
To make a big batch of Sanderson Sisters Party Punch, mix together:
- 3 parts Pineapple Juice
- 3 parts Orange Juice
- 2 parts Gold Rum
- 2 parts Apple Brandy
- 1 part Blue Curaçao
- Silver Cake Shimmer – enough to create the desire effect
- Green Food Coloring – if you want to deepen the color
This cocktail recipe is intended for adults of legal drinking age in your country of residence. Please drink responsibly. Do not drink and drive.
