Neon Glow Cocktail
At midnight, surprise everyone with a drink that glows in the dark! Fill each tumbler with one part pink lemonade from concentrate, 6 parts tonic water and 1 part gin or vodka. Turn out the lights and turn on a black light, and the quinine in the tonic water glows neon pink. To enhance the theme, serve with neon drink stirrers and hand out glow sticks when the clock strikes midnight!
