Blood Rimmed Glasses

Create the look of a blood rimmed glass with the simple steps below, they'll be sure to delight your guests! Can be done on any style glass, too...

What you'll need:

1 c. Sugar
1/2 c. Karo Syrup
1/2 c. Water
Red Food Coloring

How to:

In a small sauce pan, combine the sugar, syrup and water. Cook without stirring to hard crack stage – which is 300* F. Add food coloring.

!! CAUTION: The liquid candy is extremely HOT!!

Take pan off the heat. While the mixture is still hot, dunk the top of the glass into the mixture to create the red rim. If you need to do several glasses, keep the mixture hot so it lasts longer (instead of turning heat off, just reduce slightly). Flip the glass right side up to cool. The thick consistency of the mixture will cause “drips” as it hardens on the glass!
