How to Make Spooky Fog Drinks
First, fill your glass with your spooky drink.
Next, add gummy worms, or other creepy crawlies, to the edge of the glass for an extra spooky effect!
Witches Brew Spooky Halloween Drink
The final ingredient for your foggy witches brew, is to add in a few small pieces of dry ice. Our dry ice came in a big brick and we had to chip pieces off of it. Use tongs to handle the dry ice, and gloves if you must pick it up with your hands. It is very, very cold.
Watch the children’s eyes grow wide with amazement at what you have just created.
Safety Tips for Working with Dry Ice
- Dry ice is a solid form of carbon dioxide gas that we exhale every time we breathe. The foggy smoke is not harmful. Of course, if you will be using large amounts of dry ice, then be sure to work in a well-ventilated area to keep good oxygen flow in the room.
- Dry ice is much cooler than regular ice and can give you a freezer burn if you touch it directly, so wear gloves when working with it. Dry ice will sink to the bottom of your drink, so either wait until fog clears to take a drink, or just sip the drink from the top without letting the dry ice actually go into your mouth. Don’t eat solid dry ice, it’s way too cold for your body!
- Store dry ice in an insulated cooler, not your freezer. It is colder than regular ice, and will slowly melt in your freezer. As it melts, it turns from solid carbon dioxide to gaseous carbon dioxide and the air pressure in a confined area of your freezer will increase and could cause damage.
- Buy your dry ice as close as possible to when you plan to use it, as it is difficult to keep it cold enough to remain solid for more than 8 hours or so in a home environment.
