Jack-O-Lantern Layered Kiddie Cocktail

I am having fun with this blog... my mad-scientist oldest child was my assistant today.

Our goal was to make a cute layered Halloween drink.  After a few false starts, this is what we ended up with...

Fill your glass with ice cubes, then carefully add orange juice until it's about 3/4 full.  In a measuring cup, mix Sprite with green food coloring.  Slowly pour this on top of an ice cube, not directly on the orange juice.

I had some leftover sticky-backed felt scraps, so I cut out a little jack-o-lantern face.  Because of the condensation, the pieces are movable, so we had fun making other faces, too.  Cute, right?

How do you mend a broken jack-o-lantern?
With a pumpkin patch!

Note:  If you have older teenagers, simply buying them a Monster Energy drink would be a cute treat for Halloween!

What kind of monster has the best hearing?
The eeriest!

Note:  For an adult beverage, there is a black Vodka that is sold seasonally called, Blavod.  You can achieve a layered drink by pouring orange juice over ice, and slowly adding the vodka (poured onto an ice cube).


Happy Halloween!
