Spot the fake!


This is to follow up on my previous post about making “whiskey” with water and food coloring. 
I have been busy experimenting with the formulas.

To 1 liter of water add:
5 drops red
3 drops yellow
1 drop green OR blue

For comparison, the shot glass on the left is jack daniels. The one on the right is the impostor! Did you guess right?

    I’ve also considered using apple juice to get the same effect. It’s really the same color and it’s good for you too.

    • Thank you for your comemnt. That could work too. The compaint that I’ve gotten from actors is that the tea is too sweet and dries out their mouths on stage. I would opt for unsweetened apple juice.
