"This cocktail isn't Photoshopped. With a blacklight and the right ingredients, you can actually make your own at home."
I'm honestly flabbergasted at the amount of times I have seen this pinned by people who honestly believe if they follow the drink recipe, it will come out looking like this. This is pure photoshop people. In fact, the original artist of the image is Melody, who was so sick of seeing her image stolen and used without permission she's covered the original on her page with about a dozen different watermarks.
But is it a real drink? It sure is! I can't vouch for the flavor as I haven't tried it yet, but this is the recipe via Campus Companion :
- 9 liters of tonic water
- 3-4 bottles of rose mojito passions OR 3-4 cans of pink lemonade concentrate
And the results? It looks something like this:
As cool as that is, it's not a galaxy in a glass. It's because the tonic water contains quinine, which glows under a blacklight. You can make a lot of different cocktails and drinks that glow, as long as you use tonic water and have a black light handy.
