Glow in the dark Infected Brain Cocktail

Glow-in-the-Dark Infected Brain Cocktail

Ghoulishly eerie in full daylight and transformed under black light to a glowing brain swimming in murky green liquid. What fun for a Halloween or Zombie party. Holiday party with the medical staff? The possibilities stretch the imagination. Light, fresh melon liqueur Midori adds a green hue to the yellow Mountain Dew. As the tonic water brain melts it adds another flavor dimension to the cocktail as well. Simply leave out the liquor for a mocktail with the same effect.

  • 1 cup Tonic water (flattened for no bubbles in the ice)
  • Red Food Coloring
  • Brain ice mold
  • 24 ounces Mountain Dew , chilled
  • 8 ounces Midori (or 6 ounces Lemon Vodka)


  • Pour 1 cup tonic water into a liquid measuring cup and add 1 drop red food coloring. Stir to mix fully. 
  • Fill the 4 ice cube cavities almost to the top (ice expands so do not fill completely to the top). Place in the freezer until fully frozen. Makes 4 brain cubes.
  • Pour 6 ounces of Mountain Dew and 2 ounces of Midori (or 1 ½ ounces Lemon Vodka) into 4 Old Fashioned glasses and place a brain cube in the top of each. Note: the ice cubes are weighted to once they are placed in ‘brain-side up’ they stay that way without rolling over.
