Maleficent Halloween Cocktail
Maleficent 2 hits theaters this month, and to celebrate, we have an absolutely gorgeous Maleficent inspired cocktail!
My mom says it looks “poisonous,” and even though it’s named after a vengeful fairy, I promise this sparkling purple Maleficent drink is perfectly delicious! Plus, it is one of the most amazingly looking Halloween cocktails I’ve ever seen! It literally sparkles!
What Makes it Sparkle?
The secret to the sparkle in our Maleficent cocktail is silver cake shimmer – edible glitter!
While the original recipe is alcoholic, you can make it kid-friendly with a few simple swaps:
- Replace vodka with more Sprite
- Use grenadine in place of raspberry liquor
Either way, this Maleficent drink is sure to be a hit!

Bartender’s Tools Used
How to Make Our Maleficent Halloween Cocktail
Combine your liquors, silver cake shimmer dust, food coloring, and lime juice in a large cocktail shaker.
TIP: You don’t need fancy tools or a strainer for this recipe – during my bartending days I preferred stainless steel Boston Shakers (2-piece simple cocktail shaker cup set).
Shake for about 5 seconds to mix, then pour into a cocktail glasse filled with ice. Top with Sprite or similar lemon lime soda.
