Pear, Pumpkin, and ginger juice mocktail

A vivid orange creation like the Pear, Pumpkin, and Ginger Juice Mocktail ensures everyone is in the mood for fights and spooky delights. This beverage is so flavourful that the absence of alcohol isn’t something you’ll think twice about.

This rich creation combines the aroma and taste of seasonal pear with pumpkin and orange juice. You can always swap out the butternut squash for pumpkin if that’s what you have available. 

Rent a Bartender provides the finest event staffing for all your party needs. We specialize in holiday celebrations, birthday parties, weddings, bachelor and bachelorette parties, anniversaries, corporate mixers, and house parties.

We bartend to impress, sending our most highly trained staff to make your event as smooth as possible. We train our bartenders ourselves so that you can rely on their expertise.

Are you ready to serve the Pear, Pumpkin, and Ginger Juice Mocktail at your upcoming Halloween bash? Here are the required ingredients:

  • 1 centimetre-thick sliced ginger
  • 250 millilitres of orange juice
  • 100 millilitres of cold water
  • 1 pear, ripe
  • 50 grams of butternut squash or pumpkin, deseeded and peeled
  • Black icing, one tube

We bartend with flair at Rent a Bartender. Our mixologists will arrive ready to work, using the tube of black icing to create Jack-O-Lantern faces on the outside of tumblers. We can change up the  faces, giving them angry or happy expressions. Just ask!

After allowing the icing to dry, we’ll begin prepping the drink ingredients. Our mixologists will slice the butternut squash or pumpkin into smaller pieces, then toss it into a blender with the cold water, ginger, orange juice, and pear. We’ll blend until we get a smooth consistency, then pour and serve.

Smoking cauldron halloween punch

Create the atmosphere Halloween is known for with the Smoking Cauldron Halloween Punch, an excellent addition to any spooky drink menu. You won’t believe this is a mocktail from looking at it, but we swear it is!

The sickly color combination of bright blue and dark green conjures up a witch’s brew, as does the flowing smoke emanating from this drink. How does that happen, you ask?

Easy – it’s dry ice!

The professional cocktail bartenders from Rent a Bartender know their stuff inside and out.

Handling dry ice is no big deal for us, and we’ll always exercise the utmost caution, giving you one less thing to worry about.

You can also count on Rent a Bartender for servers to distribute drinks and snacks to your guests so you can howl at the moon.

Here is what the Smoking Cauldron Halloween Punch requires:

  • Lemon slice as garnish
  • Small dry ice cubes
  • Ice
  • 1/2 ounce of lime juice, freshly squeezed 
  • 1 ounce of blue raspberry syrup
  • 4 ounces of lemonade

Combining fruit juices with the lemonade prevents this mocktail from tasting overly sweet. It has a nice balance of flavours that almost tastes natural!

Our bartenders will need highball glasses, then we’re ready to get to work. We’ll add the lime ingredients and get the bicolored effect you need to make your drink menu social media-friendly.

Next, we’ll add a lemon slice for garnish, then add the starring attraction: the dry ice. We’ll carefully put it in one dry ice cube. Guests should only sip this mocktail when the dry ice completely dissolves, but take your pictures before then!

bloody temple

Everyone knows the classic Shirley Temple, as it’s one of the most classic mocktails (may be the most). Why not turn it on its head with the Bloody Temple?

Cocktail and mocktail customization is at the heart of what we do at Rent a Bartender. We will listen to your ideas and curate a menu full of customized Halloween Concoctions that will elevate your party.

Our expert-level mixologists and bartenders will arrive promptly several hours before your event to begin preparations. Working with us is easy, efficient, and cost-effective. Get your quote today from Rent a Bartender.

So, what is the Bloody Temple? It includes a food-safe syringe full of cranberry juice that disperses what looks like blood, hence the name.

Ready to get started? Gather these ingredients:

  • Food-safe syringe
  • Ice
  • 1 ounce of ginger ale
  • 3 ounces of lemon-lime soda
  • 1/2 ounces of grenadine
  • 1 ounce of cranberry juice

Prepare pint glasses, and our mixologists are ready to take over from there. We’ll add the grenadine and cranberry juice, mix it, and then pull it into the food-safe syringe.

We also need rocks glasses, which this mocktail will be served in. We’ll mix the ginger ale, lemon-lime soda, and ice, then insert the syringe into the frosty glass. Guests can dispense the contents from the syringe into their mocktails to create a delicious, multi-coloured effect.

This mocktail will undoubtedly be the hit of your Halloween party!

mulled apple juice

Welcome the flavours of fall with open arms with the Mulled Apple Juice, a mocktail that harnesses the harvest.

The apple juice comes through loud and clear without alcohol, but the cinnamon stick and orange notes lend this mocktail a smokiness usually produced by booze.

Rent a Bartender is backed by a $2 million liquor liability policy, installing confidence in the quality of our work. Learn more about our services here.

A Mulled Apple Juice requires the following ingredients:

  • Honey or sugar, to taste
  • 3 cloves
  • 1 cinnamon stick, plus an additional stick for garnish
  • Orange peel strips
  • 1 litter of apple juice

Rent a Bartender’s talented mixologists will infuse the flavours of the orange peel and apple juice by simmering them with the cloves and cinnamon stick over low heat for at least five to 10 minutes, adding sugar or honey as needed.

This mocktails is ready to go when it’s cooled a little. It should be served with a sliced cinnamon stick as garnish.

ocean blue goblet

You’ll fear what comes from the deep after sipping the Ocean Blue Goblet, which tastes so delicious, you’ll surprise each of your guests by explaining it contains no alcohol.

I think one of the best parts of this mocktail is its only three ingredients besides the gummy sharks.

At Rent a Bartender, we can make any mocktail look like a million bucks. We offer intensive training to new and semi-experienced bartenders looking to learn more.

This expert-level, one-on-one training makes the best bartenders in the Greater Toronto Area, who we hire to work the most exclusive small events in the neighbourhood, such as your Halloween party.

Our bartenders can create a mocktail like the Ocean Blue Goblet with no sweat.

Here’s what you should have ready for us:

  • Gummy blue sharks, one bag
  • 9.5 ounces of lemon-lime soda
  • 9.5 ounces of sour mix
  • Ice
  • 3 ounces of Torani Blue Raspberry Syrup

This mocktail is best served in a goblet to create an aquarium-like feeling. We’ll mix the liquid ingredients, then add two blue gummy sharks, one that goes deeper toward the bottom of the glass and another near the top.

The ice keeps the sharks in place and makes this mocktail icy cold, just like the ocean’s depths.

little monster mocktail

Get ready to grab attention with a mocktail like the Little Monster on your Halloween drink menu. This purple alcohol-free libation gets its appealing lavender coloration from food coloring.

If you want mocktails like this to wow your guests this Halloween, you should hire Rent a Bartender. We have a four step process that couldn’t be easier to use.

Send us an inquiry, plan your custom drink menu with us, confirm your details, and then sit back, and we’ll take care of the rest.

Let’s get making the Little Monster Mocktail!

  • Rosemary sprig as garnish
  • Ice
  • 3 drops of food coloring
  • 3/4 Ounces of lime juice, freshly squeezed
  • 1 ounce of rosemary simple syrup
  • 4 ounces of club soda
We’ll mix the purple food coloring, lime juice, rosemary simple syrup, club soda, and ice in a rocks glass. We can add one to three drops of purple food coloring. One drop creates a pretty light purple hue, while three give it a vivid coloration. 
After stirring to incorporate the ingredients, we’ll add a rosemary sprig as a garnish. You can request any garnishes you like at Rent a Bartender!

Eyeball snot-tail

A name like the Eyeball Snot-Tail might not conjure up the most pleasant imagery, but this is Halloween! It’s what it’s all about. 

The Eyeball Snot-Tail features jelly, which is why it has its name. It’s nothing grosser than that, we promise.

At Rent a Bartender, we bring all the bar equipment needed, like tumblers and stirrers. You provide the space and the LCBO. Got it? Good!

Get in touch with us today. We’re here to serve!

Now, onto the Eyeball Snot-Tail. Here’s what it requires:

  • 10 to 15 raisins
  • 10 to 15 cocktail cherries
  • 425 grams of syruped lychees
  • 300 millilitres of lemonade
  • 700 millilitres of pear and apple juice
  • 135 grams of packed lime jelly

If you can prepare the lime jelly in advance, that works great. Otherwise, we can take care of it, but it will need time to chill and set. 

In the meantime, our mixologists from Rent a Bartender will get right to work, mixing the lemonade with the pear juice and apple juice, stirring and pouring into a jug.

That jug should be given time to chill. We’ll continue draining the lychees and using cocktail sticks or skewers to make a hole in each cherry. Then, we can insert a cherry into the lychee and add a raisin to each cherry.

This creates an entirely edible eyeball that’s not made of sugary candy.

Several eyeballs should go onto a cocktail stick. When the rest of the ingredients have chilled, we can place the cocktail stick over or into the mocktail. It’s your choice.

Witch's cauldron

Devilish and spooky, the Witch’s Cauldron mocktail generates smoke from a burnt cinnamon stick. It’s an excellent garnish and sure to make this mocktail a starring attraction of your nightly Halloween festivities.

The Witch’s Cauldron uses zero-proof whiskey, which is non-alcoholic. It has notes of oak, vanilla, and caramel, so it’s smoky and warm without being boozy. It’s perfect like these!

Rent a Bartender can put together custom creations like these and more. Choose your favorite flavors and express yourself through the varied world of mocktails. Explore Rent a Bartender’s pricing today.

Get these ingredients ready:

  • Cinnamon sticks
  • Non-alcoholic spiced pear
  • 1 ounce of zero-proof whiskey
  • 2 ounces of tea tincture
  • Ice
The zero-proof whiskey, tea tincture, and ice go into a glass. Our bartenders will carefully stir the ingredients until they’re chilled, then strain into a large coupe glass. Then we’ll pour in the spiced pear.
This garnish requires trained professionals to handle it, as a cinnamon stick can go up quickly. We’ll use a kitchen torch to ignite the stick by one end, immediately blowing out the flame. In this case, you only need the smoke, not the fire!

You want to talk and interact with your guests, and that’s what we grant you the leeway to do. We’ll take care of the drink prep and serving. Just leave us the LCBO and give us the space to work.
