He likes to wink and drink pink ink.
if you have a lot of ink,
then you should get
a Yink, I think.

Today we’re making pink ink that you can drink and write with, making it a perfect Dr. Seuss party activity.
There are other ways of making an edible pink ink, but this version I feel is the healthiest and most accessible for everyone.
- 4 cups cranberry juice
- In a saucepan over low heat, bring juice to a simmer with the lid off.
- Continue simmering until the juice has reduced to ½ cup.
- Let cool before pouring into a glass jar. I used brand new reed diffuser bottles since they reminded me of ink bottles.
- Use brand new paint brushes or calligraphy pens (for older kids/adults).
- To serve as a drink, you'll want it looking more like what the Yink drinks. I felt it looked like a vase like this one on Amazon. Pour in the cranberry concentrate and top with 4 cups soda water. For extra flavour, you can also add a squeeze of lime juice.
Other options (not tested) include:
- sugar syrup with pink food dye
- cherry or strawberry syrup
- for adults, a liqueur like Chambord. To turn it into a drink, mix with champagne.
