Patriotic Punch for 4th of July


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


  • Fill your glass 2/3 full with ice cubes.
  • Start with the drink that has the most sugar since it is the heaviest.
  • I used a red colored soda { you could also use fruit punch}. Fill 1/3 full with red soda.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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!
