Red, White, and Blue 4th of July drinks are easy to make and perfect for all ages. 


Units Scale
  • Red, white and blue juice or beverage that have 3 different sugar content amounts. Example #1 - Langer's Cranberry Raspberry, V8 Splash Tropical Colada and Powerade Zero. Example 2- White Cranberry Strawberry Juice Cocktail, Blue Typhoon Hawaiian Punch, Sprite Zero.
  • 4-5 cups ice, per pitcher
  • Clear cups
  • Straws


  1. Pour the drink with the highest sugar content in the cup or pitcher first. Add enough ice cubes so that the surface layer is covered.
  2. Pour the next highest sugar content drink in next. Be careful to pour slowly and pour directly onto the ice cubes so that it does not mix with the first layer.
  3. Add ice. Then repeat with the 3rd drink.
  4. Add a straw and sip away.


  • You can use any drink you want in any color. Just make sure the total grams of sugar amount varies drastically in each drink.
