The perfect Halloween zombie drink for kids
I love Halloween! In fact, it’s my favorite holiday…I joke that I dress up 364 days of the year and Halloween is when I reveal my true form. 😉
If you are a spooky little girl (or boy) like me who loves Halloween and happen to be looking for a great Halloween drink recipe to share the shivers with your kids, this is the perfect Halloween drink recipe for families.
These Zombie Gore Guzzlers feature chunks of reddish-pink gore globbed grossly at the bottom.
Is it flesh? Is it brains?
Making Zombie Gore Guzzlers
Here is what you need to make Zombie Gore Guzzlers:
- 1 lb ripe strawberries (approximately 2 cups)
- White sugar
- 9 lemons, juiced
- A blender or food processor
This zombie drink is basically strawberry lemonade! You will probably have a decent amount of lemonade leftover after using up the strawberry “gore”, but that is not a bad problem to have.
If you want to make the recipe even simpler, you could just buy lemonade from the store…I DON’T suggest substituting sparkling drinks because the bubbles caused the gore to float, and that was not the look I was going for…if you don’t mind floating gore, you can also give sparkling a try!
How to serve your zombie drinks
Once you have prepared the lemonade and the strawberry puree, it is time to combine the two.
The KEY to this drink is to go very slowly.
How to prepare your zombie drinks:
- Set out all glasses and fill 3/4 full with lemonade
- Scoop out about 1.5 tablespoons of strawberry puree onto a spoon
- Gently lower the spoon with the puree into the bottom of the glasses of lemonade
- Using a second spoon, GENTLY AND SLOWLY scrape the strawberry puree off onto the bottom of the glass
- Serve; allow oohs and aahs of horror and delight to roll in
- Once ready to drink, use a spoon or chopstick to stir up the drink
- Drink and enjoy!

Zombie Gore Guzzlers (Non-Alcoholic Halloween Drink)
These Zombie Gore Guzzlers feature bloody chunks of -- something -- at the bottom. This non-alcoholic Halloween drink recipe will totally creep you out!
- 9 lemons juiced and seeds removed
- 1 cup white sugar
- 2 cups water for boiling
- 5 cups cold water
Strawberry "gore" puree
- 1 lb strawberries chopped (about 2 cups)
- 2 tbsp white sugar
Prepare the strawberry puree
Heat a small saucer over medium high heat. Add the strawberries and the white sugar and stir to combine.
Cook and continue to stir frequently until strawberries have darkened and formed a thick puree (about 6-8 minutes) and remove from heat to cool.
When cooled enough to handle, place strawberries in a blender or food processor and puree. When cooled completely, cover and place in the fridge (allow to cool completely to avoid condensation dripping into puree).
Prepare the lemonade
Bring 2 cups of water to boil and add 1 cup of sugar, stirring constantly until dissolved. Cool completely.
Place 5 cups of cold water and the juiced lemons in the lemonade dispenser.
Once the 2 cups water + 1 cup of sugar is cooled completely, add it into the water-lemon mixture. Stir to combine all and place back in the fridge.
