Halloween is fast approaching, and here are some delightfully scary and yummy Halloween drink ideas.

Ghost and Pumpkin Ice Cubes

Ghost and Pumpkin Ice Cubes Recipe
By Woman's Day Kitchen from Halloween Celebration | November 1, 2009

Recipe Ingredients
·      1 small orange, sliced into 6 thin slices
·      Wilton Black Icing Color

·      Wilton Mini Pumpkin and Ghost Pan
Recipe Preparation
1.     Place one orange slice into each of the three pumpkin-shaped cavities of pan. Fill all 6 ghost and pumpkin cavities with water. Using a toothpick or skewer, stir a small drop of black icing color into each ghost cavity.

  1. Place in freezer until hard, about 1 hour. To unmold, briefly dip the bottom of pan into a larger pan filled with hot water. Unmold ice cubes into a bowl and place bowl in freezer. Repeat to make 12.

            3 ounces tangerine juice
            1 1/2 ounces white rum
            3/4 ounce grenadine
            Ice cubes

Combine juice and rum in a tall glass filled with ice. Top with grenadine. Serve.
This cocktail is beautifully two-toned when first poured; afterwards, the ingredients start to mix together into an intense orange color.

1  46-ounce can  apricot nectar
1  12-ounce can  orange juice concentrate, thawed
2  16-ounce packages  unsweetened sliced peaches, thawed
7  12-ounce cans  lemon lime carbonated beverage, chilled
1. In a food processor bowl or blender container, add one third each of the apricot nectar, orange juice concentrate, and peach slices. Cover and blend or process until smooth. Pour into a freezer container. Repeat with the remaining nectar, orange juice, and peaches. Cover and seal mixture. Freeze until firm.
2. Scrape about 1/2 cup of the mixture into each 10-ounce cup. Add an equal amount of carbonated beverage. Stir to combine. Makes 20 servings.
Note: Wash one-piece plastic toys before adding to slush; remove before drinking.

1  medium  orange
3  cups  whole milk
2/3  cup  vanilla-flavored baking pieces or vanilla-flavored candy coating
1/8  teaspoon  ground nutmeg
1  teaspoon  vanilla
    Whipped cream (optional)
    Ground nutmeg (optional)
    Purchased marshmallow ghosts
1. Remove peel of orange with vegetable peeler; set aside.
2. In a medium saucepan combine 1/4 cup of the milk, the vanilla-flavored baking pieces, orange peel, and nutmeg; whisk over low heat until baking pieces are melted. Remove orange peel. Whisk in remaining milk and heat through. Remove from heat. Stir in vanilla.
3. Serve warm in mugs. Add a marshmallow ghost, dollop with whipped cream, and sprinkle with nutmeg, if desired. Makes five 6-ounce servings.
