This Toxic Waste Cocktail which is served in a lab bottle – called an Erlenmeyer Flask – is the perfect drink to serve. And it is so easy to make into a non-alcoholic mocktail for kids and non-drinkers too.

For kids, these science party cups with crazy straws are absolutely brilliant!

Toxic Waste cocktail Variations

I like to try and give variations on the cocktails shared on The Purple Pumpkin Blog, and especially turning the cocktail into a mocktail so that non-drinkers (and kids if suitable) can enjoy the drink too!

Virgin Toxic Waste Mocktail (non-alcoholic)

So that non-drinkers can enjoy a flask of this toxic tonic, we can easily remove the wine and replace it with lemon-lime soda.

To make a Toxic Waste Mocktail, follow the recipe card, but replace the alcoholic elements with lemon-lime soda.

Frozen Toxic Waste

Want to turn this cocktail into a frozen slushie? Easy! Put all the ingredients in a blender with a generous amount of crushed ice – then blend till smooth. Serve with a straw, and watch out for brain freeze! You could do the same with the mocktail version too.

This cocktail recipe is intended for adults of the legal drinking age in your country of residence.
Please drink responsibly. Do not drink and drive.
