If you want something versatile,something that is great for adults you can try the Pond Scum. This drink can be a tad sweet for most adults but the finished product looks so scummy and dirty, you’d want to drink it just out of sheer curiosity. You can make the Pond Scum with 1 liter of bottle grape soda, 1 liter of orange soda and lime sherbet, although natural grape and orange juice will work great as well. Just mix the two drinks together, add scoops of lime sherbet so they look like globs of radioactive hardened goo and you have the perfect Pond Scum. The fizz and bubbles from the soda adds to the scummy look of the drink and makes it even more realistic but you can also use seltzer for the same effect if you use the juice.
Pink Brain Shooter
