Swamp Water Surprise Cocktail Recipe

The rum cocktail gets a little creepy with this unique twist. Obviously, bringing swamp water to a party is more of a gimmick than anything else, but that’s what makes it so special. A cocktail of rum, orange liqueur, and citrus juices, this is a rather pleasant drink. In the optional surprise, gelatin is spiked with vodka, and it is similar to plasma. With this one, you can make it any color or flavor you want-there are few rules. It floats in the murky liquid and can have any color and flavor you want.
