  • Lots of Ice
  • Red Soda with high sugar content – Red Mountain Dew or Faygo work best
  • Clear Soda such as 7up or Sprite
  • 0 Sugar Blue Gatorade or Powerade (Needs to be Zero Sugar!)

When making this kid-friendly fourth of July Drink you will want to make sure that you are checking how much sugar is in each drink you are buying. No! We are not being health conscious this time! But we are checking to make sure the drink layers right!

You see, sugar always goes to the bottom, so if they all had the same sugar amount then they would all mix, making it a non-layered sparkling drink. Tasty perhaps but not nearly as pretty! So the one with the most sugar goes to the bottom, and the one with no sugar hangs out on the top and the other one hangs out in the middle! Just have fun with all the different drink options, but check the sugar amount before pouring!

How to Make A Red White and Blue Layered Drink

  • You will first want to start by filling each glass all the way to the top with ice. This is important because with the ice cubes all the way to the top it really helps keep your layers exact!

  • Next, pour the Red Soda slowly into the glass, Fill until the glass is ⅓ full. When I do this I like to slightly tilt the glass while pouring in the red drink, this helps to avoid staining ice cubes red!

  • After you have the red soda in your glass rotate the glass, and fill with your Sprite or 7-up until the glass is ⅔ full. As you pour the clear soda in I have found that it works best when you pour it over a large ice cube and as slow as you possibly can manage!
