The Neon Candy, with Neon Energy Drink

In theory, the neon candy should glow in the dark, thanks to the subtle use of quinine in Neon Energy Drink. However, our black light doesn’t seem to do the trick. Since it also doesn’t make our socks glow, my guess is the black light just isn’t the right source of “black.”

In any case, this is the last cocktail of our “Shed” series this year at a remote location. We saved this one special for this week (since we were not able to record during the week due to being at Tales of the Cocktail).
