Swamp Water Surprise Cocktail Recipe

This Halloween special not only tastes great but looks the part too! A murky fruity drink with globs of vodka jelly goo floating around inside.

To make the swamp water we use rum, blue curacao and a mixture of orange and lemon juice but you could experiment with your own juice flavours to get the perfect swamp water look.

You’ll need to prepare the vodka jelly in advance of your party so it’s ready to add to your Swamp Water drinks. You can use any colour and flavour you want but we suggest either blood red or swamp goo green! Also, for added effect why not make the jelly in shaped ice cube moulds? Try spooky spiders or beastly body party. Here’s how to prepare the jelly:

Dissolve your chosen packet of jelly in a bowl of boiling water then add 175ml vodka. Place the bowl in the freezer to set the jelly. Just before the jelly begins to harden, whip it thoroughly. Place it back into the freezer to set. Spoon the vodka jelly into your glasses of swamp water to create your ghastly swamp goo!

Follow this recipe to make your Swamp Water Surprise:


  • 60 ml rum
  • 7.5 ml blue curacao
  • 30 ml orange juice
  • 15 ml lemon juice
  • Vodka jelly goo


  1. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice and add the rum, blue curacao and juice.
  2. Shake well for 10 seconds.
  3. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
  4. Add the vodka jelly goo to each glass.
