Under The Ocean Juice
by Amber B. and Gina O.
This is like drinking a fish tank - with green sea water, fish, fish eggs, and worms. Serve for Halloween or at a party with an ocean theme.
1/2 cup small tapioca pearls (found in the baking aisle of most grocery stores)
4 tablespoons sugar
8 gummy fish
8 gummy worms
MAKE THE EGGS: Bring 6 cups of water to a boil and add the tapioca pearls. Reduce the heat slightly and boil the pearls, stirring occasionally, for 20 to 25 minutes.
COLOR THE EGGS: Divide the pearls, with the remaining water, between two bowls. Add 4 drops of food coloring (we used 3 drops of yellow and 1 drop of green in one bowl, and 4 drops of blue in the other) and 2 tablespoons of sugar to each bowl. Stir the mixtures, then allow them to sit uncovered for 20 to 25 minutes. Drain and rinse the pearls with cold water.
ASSEMBLE THE DRINK: Spoon 2 tablespoons of pearls into each glass and drop in a gummy fish. Fill the glasses with seltzer water, then add a splash of lemonade. Place a gummy worm around a spoon.
Serves 8.Note from Clarissa
: Seltzer water is carbonated water or sparkling water.
