Candy Corn Drink
Half the fun of this kid-friendly party drink is how cool it looks served in clear glass. The other half of the fun? The citrusy flavor combination is a thirst-quenching party pleaser. Layers of mango-sweetened gelatin, bubble-filled orange drink, and honey-infused whipped cream imitate the classic Halloween candy's colorful stripes.
1 (4-serving-size) package lemon-flavor gelatin
1 cup boiling water
2 cups mango nectar
3 1/2 cups orange carbonated beverage, chilled
1 cup whipping cream
2 tablespoons honey
Candy corn (optional)
- In a large bowl combine gelatin and the boiling water, stirring until gelatin is dissolved. Stir in the mango nectar. Pour mixture into a tall, clear 2-quart pitcher. Cover and chill about 2 hours or until thickened but not set. Gently pour* orange carbonated beverage over gelatin layer in pitcher.
- In a large bowl combine whipping cream and honey. Beat with an electric mixer or large whisk just until stiff peaks form (tips stand straight). Spoon over mixtures in pitcher. If desired, add candy. Before serving, stir to muddle.
Makes 8 (8-ounce) servings.
- To ensure that the carbonated beverage stays on top of the gelatin mixture, hold a wooden spoon above the gelatin layer and pour the carbonated beverage over the back of the spoon.
- Layer the mixtures in tall individual clear glasses if you'd rather show off the colors in individual servings.
