Spooky Glow-in-the-Dark Drinks

I originally posted this idea this summer, but it's absolutely perfect for Halloween parties, so I'm reposting it.  (with the added adjective "Spooky"  ;)  ) 

Pretty awesome (and spooky) isn't it?

Because the glow sticks never touch the actual beverage, they're perfectly safe to drink (and perfectly cool to look at!)

Here's what you need:

  • glowsticks (I used the kind with connectors to make bracelets)
  • clear plastic tumbler cups
  • larger opaque cups (I used red keg cups)
  • your beverage (clear or mostly clear drinks work best ~ we used Sprite)

Here's what you do:

Activate your glow sticks and bend them to fit in the bottom of your larger cup.  ( If your glowsticks have the connector piece to make them into a bracelet, it's helpful to make it into a circle so it stays in place and doesn't push up on the clear cup). Nestle the clear cup inside the larger cup and fill with your drink.  

That's it!  Serve to your amazed kids ( or fill with an adult beverage and serve to some amazed adults!)
