Jekyll & Gin Glowing Cocktail
- 3 ounces gin
- ½ ounce lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon grenadine
Pour into a glass containing a Spirits On Ice 2-½ inch ice ball. Add a straw that glows in the dark. This drink glows with a bright purple hue in blacklight!
Black Magic Margarita
Create a traditional margarita with a spooky twist! First, rim a margarita glass with black sanding sugar.
- 2 ounces silver tequila
- 1 ounce triple sec
- ¼ cup lime juice
- Red, blue and green food coloring until you achieve a dark black color
Pour over a Spirits On Ice perfectly round ice ball to maintain the chill. Consider adding a small amount of dry ice to create a smoking special effect.
Create the same type of margarita as you did for the black magic recipe, only this time leave out the food coloring. Make some Spirits On Ice ice balls with colored fruit juices to create color and flavor changes as your customers sip on their margaritas. Cranberry juice or fruit punch is great for red ice balls, grape juice for purple, and orange juice for orange. Experiment with these juices until you get the perfect amount to make into ice balls with a quick chill and slow melt.
This signature cocktail also looks great under black light, and it tastes great when chilled with an ice ball made by the Spirit Ice Vice!
- 1 ounce light rum
- 2 ounces coconut rum
- 1 ounce blue Curacao
Pour this mixture over the ice ball. Fill the rest of the glass with pineapple juice. Garnish with a pineapple wedge.
