Glow in the Dark Coconut Rum Shot for Halloween

By: Bella Bucchiotti
Have you made a glow in the dark coconut rum shot for Halloween? This black light reactive shooter is easy to make. You need three ingredients, including vitamins that glow under black light. This fluorescent neon cocktail is a glow in the dark drink that is a hit!
Prep Time: 3 minutes
Total Time: 3 minutes
Servings: 1


  • 1/2 Oz. schnapps, such as DeKuyper Strawberry Pucker
  • 2 Oz. coconut rum, such as Malibu, divided 
  • Riboflavin, Vitamin B-2 capsule, not tablets 


  • Using a measuring cup with a pour spout, pour strawberry pucker into a graduated cylinder. Leave the remnants of the strawberry pucker in the measuring cup after pouring. You’ll need the leftover droplets for the next step. 
  • Add 1-ounce of the coconut rum to the measuring cup. When it combines with the remaining strawberry pucker, it will produce a pink-tinted rum. Gently open a single Riboflavin capsule. With a light hand, sprinkle a small amount of the yellow powder on top of the tinted rum. A little bit of the powder goes a long way. Mix the powder into the rum. The powder will turn the rum from pink to orange. 
  • Tip the graduated cylinder slightly at an angle and SLOWLY pour the orange-tinged rum down along its inside wall.  
  • Add remaining 1-ounce of coconut rum to your measuring cup. Again, sprinkle a very small amount of the Riboflavin onto the surface of the rum. Mix in the powder. The Riboflavin will turn the rum yellow. 
  • Repeating the process in step 3, add the yellow-tinted rum until all of the rum has been transferred to the graduated cylinder.
