There’s always something so cool about turning off the normal lights, turning on a black light and watching things in the room start to glow (unless you haven’t washed your clothes for a while. Then it can get a little embarrassing.) But how do you get your cocktails to glow? Believe it or not, there are a few different ingredients you can add to drinks that will make them glow in the dark – and don’t worry, they’re completely safe to drink.
Aurora Jungle Juice
This drink is really cool because in natural light, it’s pink, but in black light, it glows aqua-marine. Make a giant batch of this, let your party guests fill their glasses (make sure they are clear glasses and not red solo cups or this will look stupid) and then randomly flip the black light on and watch the drinks glow.
Mix all of these ingredients up in a punch bowl and add ice as late as possible before drinking:
- 9 liters tonic water
- 2 liters gin or vodka
- 3-4 bottles pink lemonade concentrate
Glow in the Dark Apple Cider
This drink would be perfect for a Halloween party… yes, we know it’s July. But bookmark this baby and you’ll be thanking us in 3 months. Or just drink it now, because that’s what we’d do.
Stir all of these ingredients together and then garnish with a cinnamon stick:
- 2 oz. rum
- 4 oz. tonic water
- 4 oz. apple cider
Disney’s Glow Tini
Disney sells an awesome cocktail called the Glow Tini that gets its glow from a Blue Glow ice cube instead of the actual ingredients. Just turn the cube on and it makes your drink look rad.
Shake up all of these ingredients in a martini shaker with ice and then strain into a glass rimmed with sugar. Add the Blue Glow ice cube:
- 1 oz. Skyy Citrus Vodka
- 1 oz. Sweet and Sour mix
- 1/2 oz. Blue Curacao
- 1/2 oz. Peach Schnapps
- 1/2 oz. Pineapple Juice
