Glow in the Dark Cocktail Recipes

Are you looking for a fun drink to impress your friends? These glow in the dark cocktail recipes are simple to make, lots of fun to see “glow”, and a real conversation starter. Whether for a Halloween party (obviously!) or some other event or get together, if you have a dark room and a black light, these glow in the dark cocktail recipes are a must-make!

Glow in the Dark Cocktail Recipes Notes:

My Glow in the Dark Jello Shots recipe uses tonic water to get them to glow. These cocktails are using energy drinks, Monster Maxx specifically. It is the Vitamin B that makes it glow, so any energy drink with that will work. You can also crush up Vitamin B and put that in a drink instead, or use tonic water.

You can basically make ANY cocktail glow in the dark just swapping the liquid to tonic water, a vitamin B drink, or adding vitamin B. However, if you expect to just plop these Glow in the Dark Cocktails on a table and they will “glow” you are bound to be disappointed. You need a black light to get these cocktails to “glow” in the dark. Without it, they are just purple and blue drinks.

A black light flashlight is fine for showing one (or two or three) glow in the dark jello shots on a clear surface, but you will want a black light (like in a bar) for a party setting.

Set up your glow in the dark jello shots on a clear tray, in a bed of ice (with the rope of black light underneath the ice) or turn over a clear plastic popcorn bowl and put the rope of black light underneath. The darker the area the better the drinks will glow.

• There are actually two different drink recipes in this post, so you have more choices to serve your guests at your party!

• For the first cocktail (the blue one) you can free some MAXX Monster Energy Drink ice cubes, or just use regular ice cubes.

• For the second cocktail (the purple one), you will need to freeze some MAXX Monster Energy Drink ice cubes first, and then crush them.

• You can add some dry ice for a cool smoking effect.

Pineapple Malibu Slushie Recipe

2 yellow pineapple cocktails on a brown wooden board, with fresh pineapple garnish and decorative drink umbrellas


Mmmmm nothing beats a cold slushie on a hot summer day! This pineapple Malibu slushie cocktail is easy to make, frosty cold, and oh so delicious. Try one while sitting in the backyard, or lounging by the pool this weekend.

Pineapple Malibu Slushie Recipe

When the heat is on, nothing beats a cold cocktail. If you like sweet drinks (but not overly sweet), you are going to want to try this fabulous pineapple slushie. Malibu rum was used, and the tropical flavors really make this drink what it is.

2 yellow pineapple cocktails on a brown wooden board, with fresh pineapple garnish and decorative drink umbrellas. Cut up fresh pineapple in the background


Pineapple Malibu Slushie Recipe Notes:

• Tip – measure out the pineapple in the can before you open a can of pineapple juice… you may come very close to that ½ cup needed, and you can top off the rest with water to get to that ½ cup. This is a nice substitute if you do not have small cans of pineapple juice on hand, and do not want to open a large can.

• I have no idea how fresh pineapple would work in this recipe. I am guessing that frozen pineapple would work quite well, but again I have not tried it, so I do not know.

• As far as serving glass… a Mason glass jar was used, and this makes two servings. A smaller glass would make more servings.

• If you would like to rim your glasses before making the pineapple slushie, you can. Sugar for the dry, malibu rum for the wet would work. You could also try coconut flakes for the dry, malibu rum for the wet. Place your glass in the freezer while you are gathering ingredients for the drink after you have rimmed it, and have a cold glass to pour your slushie into – 10 minutes max.

• For garnish, fresh pineapple was used. Maraschino cherries would also work very well!
