Step 1: Stuff you need

Picture of stuff you need
hear is a list of stuff you need (because i cant spell ingredeints)
Nuka-Cola Quantum Recipe
Two drops of Blue food Coloring
Two drops of Red food Coloring
One Foosh "Seriously Caffeinated" Mint
1/3rds Sprite
1/3rds Mountain Dew
1/3rds Squirt! soda
Tonic water

If it Exists a small black light LED can be mounted on the bottom like a normal led with a watch battery, this will make it glow 
To help with the light defusing through the liquid, add some small piece of reflective material under the leds 
here is some other stuff to make to look cool
- OLD coca cola glass bottle (remember EVERYTHING is better when it comes fresh from a glass bottle )
- some white or blue leds
- small watch batteries
- anything else
- the labels made by aznz888 from facepunch (recipe to)

Step 2: Make it

add all your ingredients to a pitcher or whatever you want to put it in and BAM
you can use the batteries to make led throwies and hot glue / tape to the bottle to make it glow .
now somehow glue the SQUARE label to the ROUND bottle and see what you get.!!

Since there were some requests for the label, I edited it to remove the Vault-Boy, and the radiation warning. I also added the actual nutrition facts and ingredients from your recipe. Hope it helps anyone who wants it.

If you were only a Quantum Chemist, you wouldn't have to make it with different clear sodas, just a bunch of Nuka Cola's! but nah jk, this is pretty cool, i'm gonna have to try this. I was wanting one that I could keep though, any ideas on how to make it a decor that i could just turn on and off? anyone?
I think remote control LED exists.
Coat it with hot glue, then drop it in and add a magnet switch to do it!
couple things: where do i get the mints? also, i want to use a pepsi bottle for the nuka cola (the person i'm giving this to prefers pepsi), will that pose a problem for replacing the bottle cap with a nuka cola bottle cap? also, since i haven't even purchased the required items, i'll ask-how do i put a bottle cap back onto an open bottle? o.O

Do you guys know any good LED base that I should buy to make one?
I know this is a little late in coming but Just made a base because I didn't want to pay 35 for a uv base.

Used this instructable as a base since I haven't done a lot of electrical or messed with many LEDs. anyways. Used a Tuna Can and some plexi and the reflector off an old mag light.
you can make this and then put your nuka cola caps on it, or you can change the bottle tops and make it quantum.
Yep. Have a few empty Nuka Bottles and two full ones. One 8oz and one 12.5oz.

HI! awesome prop! one thing though. i dont like how the lable has the pip boy and the radiation warning... is there anyway to edit those out?
Go to, Wasteland Elvis there has done a lot of work in replicating printable images of a lot of the consumable food items in game. The Nuka drinks are just some of the few. Also the perfect bottles for the nuka drinks are the ones made in Mexico. They can be found in most Mexican Ethnic stores.
i had a thought what if you drill to holes in the bottom for the led wires and line up the led then fill the bottom with epoxy which supposedly after it sets is non toxic then just bend your wires to the correct postions and valla your led stays at the bottom
is there anyway besides using LEDs on the bottom of the bottle to make the mixture glow not only in the dark but in natural lighting? ive been searching for a way to make a liquid glow that you can still drink and i keep coming up empty handed, and if not then how do you put the LEDs on the bottle an instrutable would be nice please and thank you!
use isotope
I got a lava lamp light and put it under the bottle and it works great you could also use a stick light im not sure what its called but they are lights that are flast and the other side is stick so you can have a portable lightbulb
what i did was make a LED double throwie (2 LEDs, 1 battery) and put it inside a watertight clear plastic container which floated, attached some fishing line and a weight, causing it to float right behind the label (invisible) and it works well
Well, you could always find a supermutant, which aren't even that rare anymore, and kill them to extract the FEV virus found in them. Then you'd need to put the virus inside the cola, giving it the equivalent boost of rad poison, to radiate the water and make it glow. Other than that, no.
Im pretty sure you can make it glow in blacklight by adding tonic water.
Radiation............its edible.......
Are ya saying its wrong to eat this stuff..waerhwhrlkawkrhlhwrlhk....yum.
I don't think there's any way to make it glow in natural light and have it be edible, but c'mon, glow-in-the-dark anything is still cool.

This might work to make it glow-in-the-dark and edible.

If you just want a display piece though, just get any liquid and empty either highlighter ink into it, a glowstick, or fluorescent paint.

Besides those though, there's honestly no way to make it emit enough light to be visible in natural lighting, as well as edible.
 Quinine, the "tonic" in gin and tonic fluoresces. Its obviously edible as people drink it and is easy found in tonic water used for drinks. Diluted in the tonic water sold for consumption shouldn't be harmful or anything. I'd imagine you'd need to use an LED that emits light towards the UV side of the spectrum to get it to fluoresce. Getting it to work seems as easy as determining the wavelength and such of the light that works and then finding an LED that is suitable. 

Scroll down in the article to see it glow in a picture.

in the game it describes it as a "nuka cola then downing a fistful of sugar and punching youself in the face" so i dont see why you cant just drink some coke eat a bunch of sugar and punch yourself in the face

you know, you could always crack open a smoke detector for the americium. its not strontium, but it will get the radioactive effect. i also found my own recipe. 2 oz of pomegranate flavor 5 hour energy 2 oz of berry flavor 5 hour energy 4 oz of Mountain Dew Voltage 3 oz of Vault 1 oz of Red Bull Cola (Coca-Cola works, but i found red bull cola tasted more accurately described) 1 drop blue food coloring 1 drop red food coloring I have used it and you will not sleep for a week, then you will sleep for 3 weeks. do not drink if you have any health problems of complications, pregnant, or may become pregnant, over the age of thirty, under the age of 18, or is using any medications, dietary supplements, vitamins, health supplements, natural supplements, fruit, vegetation, meat, alcohol, or drugs. It is also recommended you visit your primary care physician daily. Be sure to drink plenty of water.
