I know that a lot of kids will say that Christmas is there favorite holiday, but I can pretty much guarantee that Halloween season is a close second.

There’s just nothing better than knowing that you’re going to load up on free sugar for days or even weeks to come.

From putting together the perfect costume to the thrill of trick or treating with friends, every moment was magical.

But nothing was better than a Halloween party!

From spooky cookies to no-bake treats, there’s just something about holiday themed goodies that makes Halloween seem like the best holiday every.

But no party is complete without a signature punch!

A few years ago my daughter requested a purple punch for Halloween and the recipe below is what we came up with using just a few simple ingredients we happened to have on hand. Since then, we’ve started calling it Purple People Eater Punch.

Perfect for kids and adults alike, this easy recipe is sure to bring a touch of festive fun to your next Halloween party.

Purple People Eater Punch – Kid Friendly


Ingredients for Purple Halloween Punch on a kitchen counter: Grape Kool-Aid, Sprite, Gummy Worms and Edible Glitter.
  • 1 package of Grape Kool-Aid Prepared to package instructions (2 quarts prepared).
  • Sugar (to make the Kool-Aid)
  • 2 liter bottle of Sprite, Starry or Lemon Lime Soda
  • ice
  • Edible Shimmer (optional)
  • Gummy worms (optional)


To make a big batch, use a large pitcher or punchbowl and combine prepared Kool Aid and Sprite in a 2:1 ratio.

One package of Kool-Aid will make 2 quarts when prepared, so if you wanted to use all of the Kool-Aid, you would mix 2 quarts of Kool-Aid with 1 liter of soda.

For an extra spooky touch you could also add dry ice at this point. Just be sure to use caution dry ice should not be handled or eaten.

What if I don’t have Lemon-Lime Soda?

In my opinion this recipe tastes bests made with lemon lime soda like Sprite, but I suppose you could also make it with club soda. It just won’t be as sweet. I wouldn’t recommend ginger ale as I don’t think it would taste very good.

What if I Don’t Have Grape Kool Aid?

No Kool Aid? No problem! I’m sure you could also make a fun purple punch using grape soda or maybe even grape juice. Just test out the ratios first to make sure it tastes good. 

Can I Add Ice Cream to This Recipe?

You’re welcome to try anything that sounds good to you. I’ve seen variations of this recipe that suggest adding scoops of vanilla ice cream, lime sherbet, or rainbow sherbet. I like the punch as is, so you’ll have to try that for yourself.
