Patriotic Punch for 4th of July!

As a military family we enjoying making and serving patriotic dishes throughout the year. However, 4th of July is our favorite our great nation and the men and women who serve. So I have created a few new colorful patriotic drinks and treats to serve up this summer. This family friendly drink that I call Patriotic Punch is fun and fruity and made with just 3 simple ingredients. 
My little patriotic cuties! 
This drink is so simple to make and tastes great.

Ingredients:

  • 20oz Sprite 
  • 32oz red colored Soda {I used Cherry Limeade}
  • 32oz blue Powerade 
  • ice
  • blue food coloring, optional

Directions:


  1. Fill your glass 2/3 full with ice cubes.
  2. Start with the drink that has the most sugar since it is the heaviest.
  3. I used a red colored soda { you could also use fruit punch}. Fill 1/3 full with red soda.
  4. Next add your white or clear drink to another 1/3 of the glass. To get it to sit on top of the red and not fully mix in you need to pour on the back of a spoon or slowly at an angle on the ice.
  5. I added a few drops of blue food coloring to my blue Powerade before adding it to the glass so it would be a brighter color. This is optional.
  6. Finally repeat the slow pouring on the spoon for the blue layer into the glass, all the way to the top.
  7. Add a festive straw and enjoy!
All you need are 3 simple drinks added together for this festive punch!
Fill your glass 2/3 full with ice cubes.
Fill your glass 1/3 full with red soda.
I found these cute plastic 4th of July themed glasses at Walmart.
Next add your white or clear drink to another 1/3 of the glass. To get it to sit on top of the red and not fully mix in you need to pour on the back of a spoon or slowly at an angle on the ice.
Finally repeat the slow pouring on the spoon for the blue layer into the glass, all the way to the top.
Add a festive straw and enjoy!
Happy 4th of July from our patriotic family to yours!
