Party Toxi-Style: Toxicolada Cocktail


After a tough day working at the health club in Tromaville what better way to unwind than with a refreshing cocktail?

It’s a little strong and a little green, but it will put some, er, sludge on your chest and you’ll feel like you have superhuman powers after you drink it.

It’s easy to make, as the creators from 12 Bottle Bar explain:

What we wanted to do was create something that you and your Halloween guests would find gross, fun, and yet still surprisingly tasty. There are a few various edible slime recipes floating around the internet, but this one suited our purposes best, as it produces a nice, mostly clear product. It’s also extremely simple to work with – you really can’t screw it up – and the only changes we’ve made to the process have been in order to achieve the most translucent slime possible. You could just throw everything in a bowl and zap it on high until finished.

2 oz Gold Rum
2 oz Rich Coconut Water Syrup
2 oz Canned Pineapple Juice (strained)
2 oz Warm Water
0.5 tsp Psyllium Husks Powder
2-3 Drops Food Coloring (Green for slime, red for guts, etc.)

Make coconut syrup by dissolving 4oz of white sugar into 2 oz of coconut water over a low flame
Add psyllium husks powder to the 2oz warm water, stir, and set aside.

Add rum, syrup, pineapple juice, and food coloring to a large (4 cup) microwave safe bowl, stir to mix, then microwave on high for 30 sec.

Add a bit of the rum mixture to the psyllium, stir to thin, then add all of the psyllium mixture back into the rum

Return the bowl to the microwave and cook on high until the mixture begins to boil and almost bubble over

Stop the microwave, stir the mixture, and heat again, repeating the process (approximately 4-5 times) until the mixture begins to noticeably thicken.

Remove the mixture from the microwave and allow it to cool thoroughly. It will continue to thicken as it cools.

Details on the ingredients and tweaks to the recipe can be found on 12 as can a warning about the use of psyllium husks powder, which can cause allergies. After all, you don’t want to turn into Toxi, just enjoy his slimey, toxic cocktail.
