What is the Blue Witches Brew made of?
First of all, let’s be clear that this blue witches brew is a cocktail that contains alcohol (vodka and Blue Curacao).
You can also make a blue witches brew cocktail that doesn’t contain any alcohol and I will post the recipe for that below.
The alcoholic version of the Witches Brew Punch contains the following:
- 2 ounces Crystal Head Vodka (or other Vodka of your choice)
- 4 oz pineapple juice
- 1 1/4 ounce Blue Curacao
If you haven’t heard of Crystal Head vodka then you are in for a treat. The neat thing about this vodka is the bottle, of course. It is a skull head so absolutely perfect for Halloween as it doubles as a cool decoration for your bar or table.
Crystal Head is also one of the best vodkas out there and is a premium vodka brand. It is made in Newfoundland, Canada and is filtered seven times, of which three passes are through semi-precious crystals known as Herkimer diamonds, making it extra special.
Blue Curacao is what gives the witches brew its beautiful sapphire color.
It is a liqueur made with the dried peel of the bitter orange laraha, a citrus fruit, grown on the Dutch island of Curaçao.
What Can You Use Instead Of Blue Curacao?
If you want the alcoholic content but don’t have any Blue Curacao, you can use a citrus liqueur such as Triple Sec and add a few drops of blue food coloring to your drink.
If you don’t want the alcohol then you can use soda water and blue food coloring or non-alcoholic Blue Curacao like the Torani Blue Curacao Syrup.
What tools do I need to make the Witches Brew Cocktail?
You really don’t need much in order to make this cocktail which makes it perfect for any party or large gathering when you want to whip them up in minutes.
I used my Octopus martini glasses ( you can get from Amazon). They have a kind of medusa effect on the drink and look great for Halloween.
The only tool you’ll need to make this cocktail:
Don’t have the tools you need?
If you don’t have a cocktail shaker, a large mason jar works just as well in a pinch.
Use the mason jar lid or a plate to strain the drink if you don’t own a strainer.
