Where to Buy Dry Ice Near You
Most grocery or liquor stores do not sell dry ice. I am lucky enough to have a large chain grocery store less than a mile away that does. But for most, you need to search it out for where dry ice is for sale. Before you go to purchase it, make sure to bring a cooler for your dry ice - you do not want to handle it directly. Here is a great DRY ICE LOCATOR BY PENGUIN ICE.
Dry Ice Cocktail Recipe Ideas
Dry ice cocktail recipes shared here include so many different alcohol choices including rum, gin, tequila, vodka, and even Midori. For me a dry ice martini is the ultimate Halloween cocktail for my holiday party. Here are a few cocktails I love for Halloween. The Hocus Pocus Cocktail has a fun dry ice fog effect. The others can be extra spooky with the addition of dry ice too.
Just be CAUTIOUS - any cocktail with sparking bubbles or carbonation like sodas, beers, seltzers, and Champagne will SHOOT up in the air like a volcano if you add dry ice. So that is a NO NO unless you love sticky messes!
Some of these cocktails do not contain a dry ice feature, but they are fantastic for Halloween. When having a party, it is great to offer a few special cocktails that fit with the theme. These drinks are easy and perfect for a Halloween cocktail or costume party. They are both sweet and the perfect treat for adults.
Any can be a cocktail or even make them in a big batch such as the Witch's Brew Drink or Cauldron Cocktail in a big punch bowl. That would look amazing with dry ice spilling over it for an eery effect. There is also a non-alcoholic mocktail Halloween punch that is great for all ages.
