Both children became incredibly ill, spitting and vomiting blood and were rushed to hospital where they were stabilised.
The children are being treated for severe burns to their throats and mouths.
According to LancasterOnline tests conducted on the juice revealed traces of methanol - an ingredient in methylated spirits that makes it poisonous.
The MirrorOnline spoke with the children’s aunt, Ally Colon, who says the children are improving, but she was horrified to see how sick it had made them.
