This Color-Changing Cocktail Is Pure Magic

Wow your friends with this fun party trick! Cabbage juice is a natural pH indicator and will change colors as you add ingredients that are either more basic or acidic — so this pretty cocktail changes from blue to pink in front of your eyes. Now, if you're worrying about the flavor, don't. We've taste tested this one extensively, and it tastes simply delicious. So chill a few glasses and get ready for your friends to be amazed.
