Glowing CocktailsGlowing cocktails don't glow on their own unless you're using safe glowing ice, but several foods and drinks glow or fluoresce brightly under a black light. Here are some ingredients you can use in a glowing cocktail and the color of the light you can expect.
- tonic water (containing quinine) - bright blue
- energy drinks containing B vitamins - bright fluorescent yellow or sometimes green
- crushed B vitamins - yellow glow
- chlorophyll - deep blood red glow
Colored FlamesEthanol (the alcohol you can drink) burns with a blue, nearly invisible flame. You can brighten the flame by adding a tiny amount of salt to produce a yellow flame. Lite salt or potassium chloride will add a subtle violet color to the flame. Flaming drinks served in copper cups sometimes burn green.
Flaming CocktailsYou can make any drink into a flaming drink. All you need to do is top the drink with a high proof alcohol, such as 151 rum, and ignite this top layer.
