We have 3 major Patriotic holidays in the U.S.A which are Memorial Day, Independence Day and Veteran’s Day. The largest celebration by far is Independence Day a.k.a. the 4th of July. Many families will celebrate with large cook-outs, pic-nics, pool parties or lake outings! Let’s not forget the parades and the fireworks too! There will be lots of grilling, conversation, laughter and memories made!
Host and hostesses are busy preparing and making Patriotic plans! I’d like to share a simple and easy red, white and blue beverage with you today that you may want to add to your menu!
This is just one of the simple ideas we used with our family celebration in 2012. I would love to hear about your Patriotic ideas!
The red, white and blue layered beverages are all over Pinterest! I’m sure you have seen them. That is where I got the idea from. Unfortunately, it was so long ago, I couldn’t possible remember the original source.
No recipe required!
Simply layer the red, blue and white according to the amount of sugar content. The most sugar content will sink to the bottom, least will rest on top. Therefore use the one with an in between amount in the middle. This is a great teaching moment with the kiddo’s because this beverage succeeds on basic physics!
- cranberry juice on the bottom,
- blue Gatorade in the middle,
- diet lemon lime on top.
Isn’t it easy?!
Please go follow my Red, White and Blue Pinterest board, here for more great Patriotic ideas! I will be adding more Pins all week!
Last year, my husband and I were on vacation at Myrtle Beach during the 4th. We enjoyed a nice hot dog dinner, part of our Hot Dog Tour which you can read about here, and watched the fireworks on the beach. This year we will be celebrating with relatives, eating too much and laughing a lot!
