The Scotch Sling looks amazing. Lemon juice with honey syrup, damn what a combination. I wonder how sweet it would be. Gotta try making this out.

When I did “Agnes of God,” that’s exactly how the costume crew survived–lots of bleach! However, I worked on another blood show where the props crew did a mixture of detergent (which has the thickness of blood) and food coloring (non-staining, of course). It worked wonderfully for us, but we weren’t dealing with all white. I’d suggest you try various mixtures to get the color you want for the effect you need.
