Introduction: Spawning Frog Mocktail

Here's one for the kiddies to enjoy - a gummi frog laying jam eggs.  What more could a kid want?

This mocktail is sweet and sparkling with a sweet (jam) and tart (gummi) finish at the end.  It's actually quite good.

Step 1: Ingredients and Tools

Picture of Ingredients and Tools
-Gummi frogs soaked in sweetened lime juice for 24-48 hours in the fridge
-Gooseberry jam (or any tan/brown jam with seeds)
-Lemon-Lime soda

-Tall glass

Step 2: Gooseberry Jam

Add a couple spoonfuls of gooseberry jam to the bottom of the glass.

Step 3: Lemon-Lime Soda

As carefully as you can, pour lemon-lime soda almost to the top.

Note:  The jam will settle back to the bottom.

Note:  If you don't like the fizz, let the soda go flat and consider it a lemon-limade.


Step 4: Gummi Frog

Using a fork, carefully position the frog on the bottom of the glass.

Note:  The frog wants to gloat belly-side up which might have its own peculiar charm.

You have quite a gift for Gummi beverages.

I second RMSs compliment; when you said you were intrigued by a gummi worm in a cocktail, you weren't kidding! What does a gummi frog look like as the alien in the alien shooter?
And a technical question for the peppermint bear shooter - why the gummi if you can't see it?

I haven't put a gummi frog in the alien shooter, but I imagine it would look like a specimen frog preserved in formaldehyde.

The peppermint bear shooter is like a Christmas present.  You don't know what's inside until you've unwrapped it.  Assuming you treat it like a shooter, you'll get a surprise, and peppermint, to me at least, hints towards Christmas or the holiday season generally.
My only fear is that I've found my niche.

You just made me snort my soda. ;-)

So cute! Would be suitable for Halloween too! :D

Very true although, in my mind, spawning frogs are magical and wonderful.  My brother once had an above-ground pool that he neglected, and the tree frogs laid their eggs in it.  My friends and I would stare at the tadpoles and catch them and try to raise them.  Mine didn't do so well, and I'm going to chalk that blunder up to the fact that I was 9 although I still feel bad for all the caterpillars, rollie polies, tadpoles, and various other critters I brought into the house to raise.  They never stood a chance.  : (  I'm better with the larger animals.  ANYWAY!  Frogs are cool.
