now don't these drinks look so cool?
How about kicking them up a notch and making them GLOW?!I learned this summer that Tonic Water contains quinine, which glows under UV light. Now, quinine is what gives Tonic water its bitter taste, so you have to add something really sweet to make it taste good! Well, I knew that it would be PERFECT for Halloween!!
You can add anything you like, I decided to use grenadine syrup (to look like blood). Plus, it sinks to the bottom and makes the drink glow more. Then, your guests can mix their drinks before consuming. I found the spooky skeleton glasses here.
Glow-in-the-Dark Spooky Drinks
Grenadine Syrup (or any flavoring syrup)
Black Light (I found inexpensive ones at Wal-Mart)
Fill glass with tonic water. Add about 1/3 as much grenadine syrup (to taste). Turn off the lights & place by UV or Black Light. Serve! You can change up the ingredients to your taste, the sky is the limit!
Notes: I just heard that glowing drinks were published on Our Best Bites last month. Dang it, I thought I was being creative! If I use a recipe idea, I always credit the source and even though I did it unknowingly! They have some great pics and also made some glow-in-the-dark jell-o stars--too cute!
