Poison Apple Halloween Drink for Kids

MogoBlog MogoLicious Tasty Tip of the Day: Love this particular Halloween drink for kids because it’s really like two drink recipes in one. First, you’ll be making your own cider. Yum, right? Then, we’ll tell you how to blend it together to create the Poison Apple drink!

Cider Ingredients:

    • 12  assorted  small-medium apples
    • 1 small orange
    • 1 C brown sugar
    • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
    • 2-3 tsp nutmeg
    • 1/8 tsp ground cloves
    • water to cover

Poison Apple Ingredients:

    • 4 oz apple cider
    • 4 oz Cranberry juice
    • Ice

Cider Instructions:

    1. Wash and chop whole apples and orange (no need to remove peels, seeds, or stems)
    2. Put all into a large pot. Add spices.
    3. Cover with water bringing to a boil. Continue to boil uncovered for 1 hour.
    4. Cover.  Simmering for 2 hours.
    5. Using a potato masher roughly mash all ingredients.
    6. Continue to simmer until cider is dark tasting sweet and spicy. Allow to cool.
    7. Strain everything into a large pot.
    8. Store in a refrigerator.

Poison Apple Instructions:

    1. Pour apple cider and ginger ale into a pitcher. Stir to combine.
    2. Add ice to a glass.
    3. Pour apple cider and cranberry juice combination into the glass.


    1. If you don’t have time (or the desire) to make your own cider, it’s okay to use pre-made apple cider. While you can get this in any grocery store during the Halloween season, I highly suggest checking out your local farmer’s market. They often have amazing apple cider made from fresh, local apples. Plus I just like supporting my area’s farmers.
    2. You can make the apple cider a day or two ahead of your party, just don’t make it too far ahead. If you’ve ever had apple cider, either from a store or that you’ve made on your own, you know that after a few days of sitting it can get a bit cloudy and, well, just a bit funky. Let it go TOO long and you’ve got yourself a bona fide “poison” apple Halloween drink! Not exactly what we’re going for here, now is it?
    3. As far as the types of apples go, a mix of different types makes the best cider. Each variety of apple has its own unique properties that, when blended together, create a perfectly balanced apple cider  will please picky taste buds. You don’t want to go with all one variety because you could end up with cider that’s too sweet or too tart.
