How to Make Ghoulish Glowing Drinks

glowing drinksDid you know that you can make drinks that glow in the dark simply by adding Tonic Water?

A substance called quinine makes tonic water fluoresce under black light.

We made our potable potions with ginger ale, sour apple flavouring, and tonic water.

Tonic water has a grapefruit-like bitterness, so if you are sensitive to bitterness, then you might not be crazy about the taste of these drinks. Emily didn’t mind the taste:

You will need:

  • 1/3 to 1/2 cup of Tonic Water
  • 2/3 cup of ginger ale
  • 1/8 cup sour apple flavoring or flavor of your choice (you could also use grenadine)

Give it a stir and drink if you dare!

      kind of rude,i mean they worked to get a new and different tutorial and u say that u were wanting a loom tutorial? why dont u try making a perfect tutorial every day? if u dont like it, just say what u actually do like.

      • Hermione Granger says:

        I was not being rude. And nobody makes perfect tutorials you know, not even Loom Love. And I didn’t say that I didn’t like it. So can you please think before you type 🙁 And I WAS wanting a loom tutorial, there’s nothing mean or rude about wanting a loom tutorial.

    These are awesome!
    By the way I think you guys would do really well doing knitting or stitching something like that, just a suggestion.
    Also, could you try some more of tutorialbyas bracelets like the French braid or the reversible something like that.
    Keep up the good work!:)

    Could y’all please put on some more Feelinspiffy videos?
    And I was just wondering, how many Rainbow looms do y’all have?

  7. Alexa says:

    Hi LoomLove! This drink looks awesome to make! But, I was wondering where you got your black light. Thanks!

    Got to try this. You 2 are funny! You should have thrown in some eyeballs,bats or spiders into your “witches brew” ….. These crafts etc are definitely good fun and make a change from the “serious loom tutorials” … Keep up the good work! Big thumbs up here!!!!!

    I’m a bit of a geek; but I love theatre and I know that the “Double, double, toil and trouble, fire burn and cauldron bubble” line is from Shakespeare’s “Macbeth”, A.K.A. “The Scottish Play.” I love your new craft series, LoomLove! Keep it up! 😀

    Hi LoomLove,
    I saw that some people have been getting a little annoyed that you’re doing draft tutorials. My opinion on that is that, well they don’t run the site. You guys do and that so you do what you want. This is your site; you’ve poured hours into recording videos, writing posts, taking pictures. I understand trying to please people; you want your fans to be happy. But remember that so long as you’re happy that your true fans will be happy too.

  12. The Next Step says:

    These craft tutorials are amazing! Is there going to be another one coming out soon? Can’t wait! 🙂

  13. The Next Step says:

    Yes I agree with @k.atnisseverdeen instagram. The crafts are really cool! I like them both, even though I haven’t done them yet 🙂

  14. Emz says:

    Hi wasn’t there a video on this page? I checked on the first day it was posted and there was a video which i found really helpful 🙂 Where did it go?
    Anyway I LOVE craft! i’m so glad you are doing tutorials I just came up with a pom pom garland!
