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

-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.

    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.
    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.
