Bleeding Brain Fizz - Easy Halloween Drink Recipe

Need an easy Halloween drink recipe for kids?  I love this bleeding brain fizz spooky drink I created as part of a sponsored Post for Collective Bias and their client. #SpookyCelebration

While most of the fun ideas on this site cater to the little ones, I also recognize the fact that many have older siblings.  So this easy Halloween drink recipe is for the big kids.  If you liked my Easy Candy Monsters then you'll probably love this Bleeding Brain Fizz.  It packs in lots of spooky charm and just takes a couple of minutes to make. You can serve it in bowl with a straw to up the fun factor because really, even adults seem to find that intriguing.

The unsung hero here is a clever little mold that I think is probably really for Jell-O, but I'm not a fan of the stuff.  Instead you can use a red drink to fill it and freeze for the bleeding brain effect.  I used Hawaiian Punch because it's the reddest of all the red drinks I could think of.  I just poured it into the little molds and stuck them in the freezer before I went to bed.

The next morning I woke up to a couple of perfectly red brains that screamed "do something fun with me!"  Which of course I was all too happy to do.  To release the brains from the molds I just ran them under a little bit of hot water and they came right out.  I put them into individual bowls and added some 7UP for a super bubbly effect.

As the brain melts it looks like it's bleeding into the rest of the drink.  Unlike most ice-related dishes you don't have to be so obsessed with the timing since you actually want the brain to melt a bit to get the desired effect.  Add some fun colored straws and you're done.
