Glow in the dark cocktails

Glow in the dark cocktails is a fun party idea and it’s easy to make. Adding tonic water to your cocktail drinks is the most common way to make it glow in the dark, since it has a substance called quinine. If you don’t like the taste of tonic water, try a technique called double glass. Put a little tonic water on a larger glass then get a smaller glass and put whatever drink you want in it, then put the smaller glass inside the larger one, and put a straw to drink.
