Here is a quick and fun Patriotic Drink perfect for the upcoming 4th of July, but great for any patriotic holiday. If you have a star mold ice cube tray, even better, but it’s not necessary.! Such a simple drink to make and my kiddos were so excited or maybe it was the fact that I let them have soda. That’s usually something they expect from Dad!
What You Need:
- Any lemon-lime soda of choice – chilled ahead of time is best
- Red and Blue drink mixes, like Kool-Aid or Fruit juice
- Ice trays – star shaped is awesome but regular is perfect, too
- People to share it with.
- Enough time to make ice for your gathering
Step 1: Mix drink mixes separately, pour into ice trays and place in freezer to form.
Step 2: Remove new ice from freezer and let them sit out for a few minutes before removing from the trays. They will pop out with very little fuss.
Step 3: My kiddos’ favorite job is to pop the ice out, so we pop it into a separate bowl to save a stick mess.
Step 4: Pour soda into glasses. If it is chilled beforehand, the ice won’t melt as quickly. But we discovered a fun sizzle effect with the warm soda!
The kiddos thought the stars were so neat. I scored some Cool Mom Points with this one!
Step 5: Enjoy! And I quote for my kiddos, “This is the best drink ever!”
