BLACKLIGHT JELLO SHOTS - Bet you never saw jello shots like these. These blacklight glowing cups of wonder are fun to look at. They're a little bitter because of the quinine in the tonic water, but that's what makes them glow! You could easily swap Gin for the the Vodka, and have something close to a fruity Gin & Tonic. You must have a blacklight for these to glow! It's pretty awesome looking though if you do.

I have been so excited to make my own tonic water because I absolutely loathe the thought of drinking anything other than Fever Tree or Q Tonic ($2 a bottle -- way too expensive). My powdered quinine just came in ... look out people. Yummy tonic drinks ahead.
