Perhaps glowing cocktails fall out of the realm of pastries and sweets, ahem...
But they are still usually sweet, aren't they?
I have had my fair share of glowing drinks.
How about you?

In the early to mid 90's, dancing at discotheques in the Mexican town I grew up in was the #1 fave thing to do.
Vanilla flavored smoke on the dance floor, and a glowing cocktail in hand.
It was crazy fun, and there were lots of drinks that required Tonic Water.
Which has quinine in it.
Which happens to glow in the dark under black lights.
(glow in the dark ideas from Martha Stewart)
All you need is one glow in the dark light bulb and a lamp nearby.
Then put tonic water in, and watch your drink glow.
With the resurgence of neon and glow in the dark, folks are making all sorts of edible glow in the dark treats, just by adding quinine.
Of course, you always need a black light to see these things glow.
But at this time of the year, you can find a black light almost anywhere.

I love spooking up edibles and drinks for the Halloween season.
If you aren't into glow in the dark, there are some extra ghoulish ideas here...
I personally am always partial to smoking punch bowls.
My mom always made spooky punch during Halloween.
I would go with her to the local ice-cream shop to buy a big piece of dry ice.
I remember always being not allowed to handle it, and being super careful.
And later, there was always a bubbling smoke witch punch.
I would go crazy over it, always a fave!
