I love creepy Halloween cocktails and I had so much fun creating this Scary Berry Sparkling Mint Lemonade Cocktail! It’s just something about sipping on a cocktail filled with eyeballs, that screams “Happy Halloween!”

Each year, I try to think of a super fun Halloween-inspired cocktail, and since I happened to have a bag of random eyeballs in my supply closet, I just knew that I had to include them! I picked up the rest of my ingredients from Sprouts Farmers Market and started working on my masterpiece!
As you already know, I loooove shopping at Sprouts Farmers Market because they literally have everything that I need! And they also have some really great specials too! I picked up a bottle of Sprouts Mineral Sparkling Water, a bottle of blueberry lemonade located in the refrigerated section, Sprouts Frozen Wild Blueberries, mint, and all-natural food coloring from the baking section.
Even though this cocktail contains vodka, you can also make these cocktails non-alcoholic and just omit the vodka. It will still taste just as great and would be perfect for any crowd!
This Scary Berry Sparkling Mint Lemonade Cocktail was super easy to make! To give the rim of the glass a little natural color, I mashed 1 tbsp of blueberries and combined with sugar. Then, I swirled the rim through the blueberry/sugar mixture.
Next, I added ice to my sugar-rimmed glass and added in a few of the Sprouts Frozen Wild blueberries and fresh mint. I love added fresh ingredients to my cocktails because it adds so much delicious flavor!!
After you pour in the blueberry lemonade, vodka, and simple syrup, top with sparkling mineral water and stir. For a super cool effect, add one small drop of all-natural blue food coloring (do not stir), and a few plastic eyeballs on top! Perfection, right?!
For your next Halloween party, go ahead and give this recipe a try! Be sure to rate it and let me know how it turned out in the comments below! Cheers!
