Today I’m bringing you a fun and family friendly drink that everyone in my house just loves! Often, when you think of cool and fruity drinks the only ones that come to mind contain alcohol. But there is absolutely no reason why those of us who don’t drink alcohol have to miss out on paper umbrellas and the fun drink experience!
This is a drink that my son and I whipped up and I dubbed it the “Tropical Pink”. It uses three simple ingredients and is always a favorite with kids and adults alike. No blender is needed, just something to stir with and a straw when you’re finished! I even took the ingredients for these to a pool party recently and set us up a little family friendly bar. Ready to sit back with a cool drink in your hands? Let’s go!
You’ll need: Lemon Lime Carbonated “soda” (in Alabama we just call that 7-up or Sprite, despite the brand), Pina Colada Mix, and Grenadine syrup.
You can get all of these ingredients at just about any grocery store. The Pina Colada Mix and Grenadine are found near the alcohol but they do not contain any themselves, they are just mix-ins.
Put some ice in a glass. Add Grenadine….
Then add Pina Colada Mix (exact measurements are at the bottom of this post) and half of your Lemon Lime Soda. Stir just until well combined.
Add in the rest of your soda, pop in a straw, and enjoy!
Simple as that!
Every summer deserves a little tropical drink, so now you have the Tropical Pink!
- ½ Tablespoon Grenadine (a teaspoon and a half)
- 2 Tablespoons liquid Pina Colada Mix
- 12 ounces lemon lime carbonated soda (Sprite, 7-Up, etc)
- Fill a large glass at least halfway with crushed ice.
- Add the grenadine, pina colada mix, and ½ of the sprite. Stir to mix.
- Add the rest of the sprite and stir gently.
- Serve immediately.
