Alice in Wonderland- Glowtini

Glowtini's for kids

This week I have another great way to get the kids into the kitchen and get some extra fruit into them by making it fun.  I have included three "Glowtini" recipes.  Whats a Glowtini? its a child friendly mocktail that glows in the dark and it's completely safe to drink! Read on to find out more.

Cherry Mint Glowtini for Kids

Cherry Mint Glowtini

  • 1 cup fresh cherries, stemmed and pitted

  • 1/4 cup fresh mint

  • 1/2 tbsp Sugar

  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice

  • 3 cups club soda

  • ice

In a large bowl, combine cherries, mint, and sugar. Using a potato masher or pastry blender, muddle ingredients together until cherries burst and mint has released it's flavor. Add to a large glass pitcher and add lime juice, club soda, and ice. Mix gently to combine.

Serve over additional crushed ice. Now for the cool part, turn it into a Glowtini by adding one of these super cool glowing ice cubes. Serve it in a darkened room and you'll hear the gasps and how cool it looks, it tastes great too.

Candy Floss Glowtini

Candy Floss Fairy Bubbly

For glowtini no.2 I have the simplest idea ever, no excuses for this one you have to try it.

You'll need 

  • Candy Floss

  • Cherries

  • Cherry 7up

  1. Place one piece of cotton candy in the glass and pour over the cherry 7up.

  2. Place a cherry in the glass and serve.

  3. Yes… it is that easy! I warned you that is was crazy easy.

  4. Add a glowing ice cube to turn it into a Glowtini

Raspberry Glowtini Wonder Kids

Raspberry Lemonade Fizz Glowtini

This recipe is the most time coming but it tastes great and it has real fruit in it.  Here's what you'll need

1 pk frozen Raspberries

Lemonade to taste

Ginger ale

First, cook down frozen raspberries into a thick, syrupy juice. Time: 10-15 minutes.

Second, press syrup through a fine-mesh sieve to remove seeds.

Third, chill the raspberry syrup for at least 2 hours.

Finally, combine raspberry juice with lemonade in a large pitcher and top with ginger ale.

Pour over ice and serve! Add one of the glowing ice cubes for the wow factor.

That's it for this week but come back next week for more great Alice in Wonderland ideas.  You can also try some of our previous posts below and don't forget to let us know which Glowtini is your favourite in the comments below.
