Classic Patriotic Punch

There are a handful of versions of this recipe that all create beautiful red, blue, and clear layers with non-alcoholic beverages. When you’re making a layered drink, the key is to use drinks with different amounts of sugar. Drinks with more sugar are more dense than those with less sugar, which allows the layers to “stack” on top of each other.

All of these punch recipes use some variation of the following beverages:

  • Red Fruit Punch or Juice (i.e. Cranberry Juice)
  • Blue Gatorade
  • Diet 7-Up, Sprite, or any other clear soda

Please note:  It is important to use a diet or sugar free soda so that at least one of your layers has little or no sugar.   Pour the beverage with the most sugar first (so that it’s on the bottom) and the beverage with the least sugar last (so that it’s on the top).

Pour equal amounts of all of the beverages to create a colorful, layered glass or pitcher.

If you choose to add ice, the best time to add it is after you’ve added the second layer and before you’ve added the third layer.

Not feeling the Big Pitcher, you can use cups as well….

    Good post. I learn something totally new and challenging on websites I stumbleupon everyday.
    It’s always exciting to read content from other authors and use a little
    something from their websites.
