Red, White, and Blue Spritzers!
With July 4th coming up, I thought I’d show you a cute little way to make a layered patriotic colored spritzer that will delight young and old alike – and not take any longer than it does to pour a regular drink!
You’ll need: Blue Gatorade, Sprite Zero or Diet 7-Up and Cranberry Juice Cocktail
A word about substitutions: This is one of the few recipes I have that I ‘m gonna tell you it’s best not to make any substitutions. Why? Because I’ve tried them and they don’t work.
Blue Kool-Aid? Nope, tried it and it didn’t work.
Regular Sprite or 7-Up? Nope, tried it and it didn’t work.
Lower Calorie Cranberry Juice? Nope, tried it and it didn’t work.
And don’t even think about using the new G2 Gatorade. As much as I am a fan of it, it won’t work.
You really need these three things in particular to layer because each of these liquids have a density slightly lighter than the layer beneath it but heaver than the one on top of it.
That is what makes this work so well .
Fill your glasses with ice.
Ice is important here because when we pour our liquids that ice serves as a breakwater to help keep our layers separated.
Add in your first layer, which is cranberry juice cocktail.
Slowly pour the blue gatorade over the ice in each glass.
Now add Diet Sprite or 7-Up
Now drink it!
