How To Make An Edible Glitter Drink Recipe
For our swirling witch brew drink we used a magic brew glitter (aka: edible food glitter, or sometimes called edible cocktail glitter dust).
Can I use edible glitter in drinks?
YES! Edible glitter makes a fun magical swirl effect when used in drinks — especially in carbonated drinks because it keeps bubbling! Just add a tiny amount of the edible drink glitter to your glass before adding the liquid beverage.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT USING EDIBLE GLITTER:
Food glitter is NOT regular glitter. This is food grade glitter made to use with cakes, cookies, cupcakes, drinks, etc. You CANNOT use regular glitter for drink glitter as it is not made for consumption. Edible glitter vs regular glitter is very different and should not be used interchangeably!
What is edible drink glitter made of?
The ingredients for edible drink glitter vary based on the brand of the edible glitter, but almost every food glitter has a main ingredient of sugar. It then usually includes cornstarch and a variety of coloring additive ingredients. Be sure to check your specific edible glitter brand package ingredients.
How do you make edible glitter drinks?
To make edible glitter drinks, simply add a very small amount of the drink glitter to a clear glass. Then, added your liquid and stir.
How much edible glitter do you need for a drink?
You only need a very small amount of drink glitter for a drink. Use a small pinch (around 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon) for each drink glass before adding your drink mix.
DRINK RECIPE TIP: Food glitter can be costly. If you are making drinks with kids, adults should be the one to add the glitter you can eat. It only takes a little!
Is edible glitter safe to eat?
Yes. Edible glitter sold in the United States should be FDA compliant ingredients and food safe.
Where can I buy edible drink glitter?
You can buy edible drink glitter or food glitter at specialty food stores, craft foods that have food decorating items (like Michaels), party stores, and even online.
This is the edible drink glitter we bought for our Sanderson Sisters hair colors. The edible glitter for drink colors we used: gold, orange, and purple. (We also used jars like this for our drink glasses.)
Let’s get to the magical Hocus Pocus mocktail (aka: Halloween drink with edible glitter or edible drink sparkles)!

- 24 ounces carbonated lemon lime soda, chilled *
- 1 cup pineapple juice, chilled
- 1/2 teaspoon orange edible glitter
- 1/2 teaspoon gold (yellow) edible glitter
- 1/2 teaspoon purple edible glitter
- Pre-portion 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon of the edible glitter dust into each glass jar - just about a pinch for each glass. (We use 8 ounce jelly canning jars with lids.)
- Add 1/4 cup pineapple juice to each jar.
- Add lemon lime soda to each jar. **IMPORTANT do not fill all the way to the top. Once you place the lid on and shake the jar, the carbonation will explode if you fill the glasses/jars too full.
- Immediately place lid on jar and shake. Observe the awesome drink magic! (If you are using clear glasses instead of jars, stirring the drink with a straw or spoon will get the same result.)
- Remove lid and place straw in drink. Served immediately.
- If at any point the drink dust glitter settles, just stir with a spoon or straw. It will magically appear again!
*You can also use carbonated flavored waters like Bubly and La Croix. Just make sure you use carbonated drinks for full bubbling drink effect!
Use glasses for best effect so you can see the cool drink effects taking place.
We used 8 ounce canning jelly jars with lids, which allowed us put the lids on and shake the drink. Then, when you remove the lids, add a party straw and you have a super cool Halloween drink for children!
We used purple, gold, and orange drink colorings because we wanted to make the colors of the Sanderson sisters hair for a Halloween Hocus Pocus party, but you can use any color to match to your theme or party.
IMPORTANT TIP: The edible glitter for drinks can be costly. If you are having a kids Halloween party or doing kids activities with it, you'll want to pre-portion the glitter drink dust into the glasses before adding the liquid.
