Title: Illuminable containers and method

Abstract: The disposable liquid beverage container of the present invention comprises a first compartment for sealably containing a beverage and a second compartment adjacent the first compartment. A barrier having a translucent portion separates the first and second compartments. A light source and an energy source electrically connected to the light source are disposed in the second compartment. A switch activates the light source such that the light source shines through the translucent portion of the barrier and illuminates the beverage disposed in the first compartment of the container. A holographic image embedded in a film attached to an outside of the container is created within the first compartment when the light source is illuminated. Methods are also provided.
