Updated on October 14, 2013

Keep your kids hydrated

For this special day, where kids feel so energized by the celebrations, you are not the only one who needs a well deserved drink, they can have one as well, themed of course.

Olives can become spiders, eggs can become eyes, whipping cream can become ghosts.

Tonic Water

Any flavoring syrup. I used Grenadine Syrup due to its color.

Black Light which you can find online.


Fill a glass with tonic water and then add 1/3 grenadine syrup, you can taste to see if it's the right concentration. Turn off the lights and place the glass by UV or a Black Light. Serve! You can change the ingredients to your favorite ones.

The reason why this drink glows in the dark is because of the tonic water. The tonic water contains quinine, which glows in UV light and it gives the water that bitter taste, so you should use a lot of sweet syrup to cut off that bitterness.

The Grenadine syrup is ideal for this drink because of his blood color and it sinks at the bottom of the glass.

Filled with gummy creatures and fish eggs made from tapioca pearls, this sweet, bubbly drink looks like something scooped up from a deep, dark bog. Try making a batch for a Halloween gathering or as a spooky after-dinner treat.

What you'll need


1/2 cup small tapioca pearls (found in the baking aisle of most grocery stores)

Food coloring

4 tablespoons sugar

8 gummy fish

Seltzer water


8 gummy worms

How to make it

MAKE THE EGGS: Bring 6 cups of water to a boil and add the tapioca pearls. Reduce the heat slightly and boil the pearls, stirring occasionally, for 20 to 25 minutes.

COLOR THE EGGS: Divide the pearls, with the remaining water, between two bowls. Add 4 drops of food coloring (we used 3 drops of yellow and 1 drop of green in one bowl, and 4 drops of blue in the other) and 2 tablespoons of sugar to each bowl. Stir the mixtures, then allow them to sit uncovered for 20 to 25 minutes. Drain and rinse the pearls with cold water.

ASSEMBLE THE DRINK: Spoon 2 tablespoons of pearls into each glass and drop in a gummy fish. Fill the glasses with seltzer water, then add a splash of lemonade. Place a gummy worm around a spoon as shown.
