Blackout Punch recipe

Blackout Punch recipe

I designed this punch to be served at a black light party. The goal was to utilize tonic water to create a punch that glows. Sure enough, the final result glows a thick, radioactive blue color under a black light. It was a hit at our party and we’ve made it a few times now, with rave reviews every time. Beware, it’s hard to taste the alcohol in this drink – after a few glasses, it hits you hard.

Scale ingredients to servings
1 vodka
6 L 7-Up® soda
4 L tonic water
2 Frozen lemonade Concentrate
16 oz Blue Curacao liqueur
24 oz pineapple juice

All ingredients should be mixed in a five-gallon beverage cooler. Begin by combining the frozen lemonade with the vodka to create an alcoholic slush, and add the rest of the ingredients to that mixture. The total yield is about 5 gallons of a beverage that is approximately 10% ABV.

These are some uhmazazazazazing pics.

Sparkling Escape

Did you know that they purr like domestic cats? yes…maybe a bit loud!
I guess I do not have to explain how my Namibian experience was last year… still thinking of it.
