Easy-to-Make Red, White and Blue Beverages


Red, White and Blue Layered Beverages

Cheers to the Red, White and Blue!   Bring on some fun with these easy to make Red, White & Blue Layered Beverages.  

Layered Drinks

 When layering drinks no matter what the color combination you want to choose them by varying levels of  sugar content.  The higher the sugar the more the beverage will sink.

For this drink I used 100% Cherry Juice {this contained the highest amount of sugar}, Hawaiian Punch Berry Blue Typhoon {less sugar than the cherry juice but more than the 7 Up} and 7 Up Ten which contains no sugar.  If I had really been thinking I would have spent more time to come up with a combination that was really, Red, White and Blue but I had the kids with me…I was tired, hot and grumpy and after looking at the labels on umpteen beverages I chose this combination.

The trick to layering this is to add your ice cubes to your glass first, then your bottom liquid.  For the next layer you are going to use your ice cubes as a funnel of sorts to GENTLY add your next layer letting it slide gently down the ice cubes {YOU DO NOT want your layers to mingle}.  You final layer is added in the same way, very gently so as not to mingle your layers.

These are fun to make with the kids and as I said, you can customize the colors to just about any occasion.
