Ice cubes or drinks containing tonic water will glow blue under black light.

Anne Helmenstine
Party drinks can look radioactive or can glow in the dark. Here are some ideas.
  • Anything served in a beaker or test tube. If it is carbonated or brightly-colored (like Mountain Dew) so much the better.


  • Anything made using tonic water will glow under a black light. If you freeze tonic water, the ice cubes will glow bright blue under a black light.


  • Consider freezing candy eyeballs or gummy worms into ice cubes to add to drinks.


  • You can use glowsticks as stirring rods or decorations in your drinks.


  • If you have access to dry ice, adding a little to a punch bowl will produce a dramatic boiling, foggy effect. Just don't drink the dry ice!
Make Igor-Ade
  1. In a saucepan, mix 1-1/2 cups of apple juice and a 3-oz package of lime-flavored gelatin.
  2. Cook and stir the mixture over low heat until the gelatin dissolves.
  3. Remove the saucepan from heat. Stir in another 1-1/2 cups of apple juice.
  4. Refrigerate the gelatin mixture about 2 hours or until thickened.
  5. Divide the mixture evenly among 6 glasses.
  6. Slowly pour orange-flavored drink down the side of each glass. The orange drink will float on the green gelatin mixture.
