2. Jelly punch (alcoholic)
Hop on TikTok’s jelly food trend with this jelly punch recipe. First, make the jelly from a mix of water boiled with sugar and agar-agar powder (a vegan alternative to gelatin). Next, pour the jelly mixture into a baking dish. Then add a few drops of food coloring, and swirl it around using a toothpick. Refrigerate the jelly mix for approximately two hours. Then transfer it to a cutting board, and use a small cookie cutter to make cute shapes. Add the jelly shapes to a glass over ice, followed by gin and tonic water, and enjoy!
3. Whipped Lucky Charms (non-alcoholic)
You’ll really want Lucky Charms once you’ve had a sip of this beverage. Begin by whisking together heavy whipping cream, sugar and crushed Lucky Charms marshmallows in a mixing bowl. Next, line the rim of a glass with marshmallow fluff. Then pour chocolate milk over ice, and top with a scoop of the whipped Lucky Charms. Finally, garnish with assorted Lucky Charms marshmallows.
4. Galaxy drink (non-alcoholic)
Who knew the entire galaxy could fit inside a glass? First, rub a lemon wedge over the rim of a glass. Then dip it in edible pink glitter. Next, add a layer of regular crushed ice, followed by crushed butterfly pea flower tea ice. Repeat this step once more. Then pour in a mix of lemon juice and sugar. Add another scoop of crushed butterfly pea flower tea ice before topping it off with sparkling water.
5. Watermelon spritzer (alcoholic)
The only thing sweeter than this watermelon spritzer is the dog who made it in the video. Start by adding ice cubes with watermelon to a glass, followed by your choice of liqueur. Next, pour in watermelon juice and lemon juice before topping it off with Sprite. Finally, garnish with a flower or a slice of watermelon, and enjoy!
