Nuclear Waste

1 measure blue curacao
1 measure Bailey's Irish Cream
top up with one pint cider (or lager if you prefer)

The end result is a sort of greenish-brown liquid with scummy bits floating in it and a thick layer of scum on top. Tastes wonderful, though, especially if you dunk chocolate bars in. (These are referred to as Control Rods, and the bar of preference is a Toffee Crisp, if only because the crisped rice pieces start floating around in the drink and making it look even nastier)

The nuclear wastes I've seen mix blue curacao and orange juice (and vodka). Turns everything a very nice shade of fluorescent green.

Glycol Punch has two primary ingredients:
Diet Mountain Dew, which has an decidedly evil odd yellow glow to it. Diet is necessary so that you don't over sugar people. BTW, we also tried other sodas, including Squirt, 7-up and Sprite, but none had that evil yellowness.

A flourescent blue liquid. I know for a fact that the raspberry "little hugs" drinks for kids are the perfect color. There is a recent Kool-Aid blue flavor that I'm sure would work well, too.

For the "little hugs" the ratio is about 4-5 barrels to 1 2-liter bottle of soda. Adjust as you think best. I'd start by pouring out the soda and adding the blue. You know you've got it right when you get the sickly yellow-green of many Glycol-based Antifreezes. Plus, when you drink, it fizzes!

3 parts grape juice, 1 part orange juice, vodka optional. If you can find it, you might try Ribena, a concentrated currant syrup that was used for blood when the series was filmed (I hear it's horrid to drink but looks *very* effective in a wine glass).
