Ingredients

  • 1/3 tsp matcha powder (you will not be able to taste the matcha, it just adds color naturally)
  • 36 oz cream soda (try a no-sugar variety to reduce the calories and sugar in this recipe)
  • 12 oz vodka
  • dry ice optional, for a "spooky" effect

Instructions

  • In a large bowl, add every ingredient. Whisk well to make sure that the matcha powder is well incorporated. If there are some clumps after whisking well, you can remove the clumps with a spoon. Note: If using green food coloring, add 2 drops at a time, then mix well. Continue adding drops, then whisking, until desired color has been reached.
  • Transfer the drink to a pitcher, punch bowl, or glasses. If serving in a pitcher, add a few cubes of dry ice. If serving in glasses, add 1 (1 inch) cube of dry ice per glass, and serve your spooky beverage.

Notes

Top Tips for Making This Witches Brew Cocktail
  • Swap the cream soda for ginger ale or your favorite light-colored soda or sparkling water. 
  • For some extra Halloween fun, add some ice cubes that are shaped like various Halloween shapes. They are inexpensive and spooky. 
  • Never ever eat or drink the dry ice. It can burn you if consumed. 
  • The matcha powder is a healthy ingredient that enhances the color. It doesn’t affect the flavor at all of the witches brew cocktail. 
  • If you use a no-sugar cream soda, this recipe will have 0g sugar and only 90 calories!
  • These witches brew cocktails are going to be far better when you can drink them fresh. The cream soda is carbonated and will go flat the longer it sits. If you need to save it, you can refrigerate for 12 hours or so, but keep in mind it won’t be as good as when it’s fresh. 
  • Be very careful when handling and storing dry ice. Do not touch it with your bare hands, and store it in a well ventilated space or outdoors, away from kids and pets.
How to Handle and Store Dry Ice  
  • Never touch it with your bare hands or consume it. It can burn skin in a very short time.
  • It’s best to use leather gloves, a thick towel, and/or tongs to handle the dry ice. 
  • To separate the dry ice into 1 inch cubes for cocktails, you'll need a flathead screwdriver, hammer and a set of glasses. You can use the hammer and screwdriver to separate the block of ice into small pieces. Gently tap on the ice until it breaks apart.
  • The glasses will protect your eyes just in case shards fly when you separate the ice (although this is rare when done carefully).
  • Use tongs to drop the dry ice cubes into the cocktail before serving. It will bubble for about 5 minutes before disappearing, so tell your guests not to drink the dry ice cubes.
  • To Store Dry Ice: When you aren’t using it, keep the dry ice in a styrofoam or insulated container with the lid ajar. Don't store dry ice in the fridge or freezer. I recommend storing dry ice outside where there is good airflow (you can't keep it in a closed room because the CO2 will build up to a toxic level). And of course, keep it away from kids and pets!
  • To Dispose of Dry Ice: let any leftover dry ice melt into a gas in a well-ventilated space or outside. Don't throw it in the trash or the sink.
