Red, White and Blue Layer Drink



This is a fun drink for adults and children and perfect for celebrating the Fourth of July or Memorial Day!
(This would also be perfect for birthday parties or any other fun get togethers)!!
*Remember to scroll to the bottom for more recipes!  



Red, White and Blue Layered Drink
Ingredients
  • Sobe Pina Colada (25g sugar)
  • Gatorade Fruit Punch (14 g sugar)
  • G2 Blueberry Pomegranate (7g sugar)
Instructions
1. Fill a glass with ice, pour the Sobe Pina Colada to about 1/3 of the glass
2. Add the Gatorade Fruit Punch by carefully pouring through the ice,
3. Fill the last 3rd with the G2 Blueberry Pomegranate.
(make sure the glass is full of ice and be very careful as you add each color by pouring onto the ice very slowly)
Powered by Recipage


 This is almost a science experiment. The secret is the amount of sugar content.  The Sobe Pina Colada has the highest lever of sugar thus making it denser and heavier and the G2 Blueberry Pomegranate has the least amount of sugar allowing it to stay on top.  

Enjoy and Have Fun with These!!

Clay's Apple Seasoned Grilled Ribs

  9. Very cute! I tried making a layered cocktail recently, but it tasted terrible! These ingredients sound much more palatable. I'll give it a try, and thanks for the tip about which one is heavier. Very helpful!

  33. My new favorite is Pina Colada (alcohol, that is). Great idea for the layers. I would never have thought about the sugar levels vs. where the drink leveled off at.
