2/3 cup Corn Syrup

1/3 cup Water

5 Tablespoons Corn Starch

3 to 5 Teaspoons Red Food Coloring

2 or 3 Drops Green Food Coloring

1 Drop Peppermint extract, if desired.


Mix the Corn starch thoroughly with the water. Add the Corn Syrup. Mix well. Add red food coloring into the mixture, using only 3 tsp at first. Then add a couple drops of green food coloring to take the 'pink' edge off the red coloring. If the mixture is too light, add one or two teapoons more red food coloring. Add an extra drop of green food coloring if the mixture gets too pink again (Real blood is slightly on the dark red to reddish brown side, when its not fresh from the heart). Add one drop of Peppermint extract if you wish a fresh minty blood mixture. The concoction tastes quite pleasant, and can be used as makeup or a "Glass of Wine" for your vampire to drink.

I've also been informed that Milk can be added (instead of or with the cornstarch) to keep the blood from being too transparent. White glue was also given as a suggestion, but if you go that route I wouldn't suggest using the mixture on or in your mouth.
