Really cheap fake blood for under $1

We have various recipes for fake blood on the site but this has to be the cheapest one so far.  The ingredients are pretty simple:


  • 5 packets cherry flavored drink mix
  • one package lemon-lime drink mix
  • 1.5-2 cups of sugar
  • about 15 oz of water


  1. Put the five packets of cherry mix in a bowl and add about 10 oz of water to the mix, stir until dissolved.
  2. Mix in the lemon-lime drink mix until you get the desired color.
  3. Put the mixture in a sauce pan, add 1.5-2 cups of sugar, 5 more oz of water and bring to a boil for a few minutes continuing to stir and it will get thicker.  Once it’s at about the right consistency you can remove it from the heat and let it cool, then you can put it in the refrigerator.
  4. Once it’s cool, you can add more water to get it the consistency you want.
