Ingredients

How to make it

  • Boil 1 cup of Tonic water.
  • Pour boiling tonic water into a jello mold or glass bowl,
  • Sprinkle in Jello powder while mixing the hot tonic water, stir until all of the powder is dissolved.
  • Add 2 Tbsp of sugar to sweeten (if desired).
  • Add 1 cup of cold tonic water and mix briefly (1 or two stirs)
  • Place in refridgerator for 2 hours until set.
  • When the jello has set you can take it out and it will glow under a black light. (this is due to the quinine in the tonic water -the stuff that makes it bitter).
  • Not only is this a great halloween treat, quinine has been used for years in medicine for some of its soothing properties.
