Want to make something really fun for the holiday? Red, White and Blue for the 4th of July? Or other bright colors for a birthday party? Or school colors for a graduation party? How about striped drinks! They are easy and fun and tasty.
The stripes are all about the sugar. Choose 3 drinks with different amounts of sugar. Read the grams on the ingredients panel. Choose one with high sugar content for the bottom. (about 25 to 35) Choose another drink with a lower number for the middle. (about 15 to 20) Choose a sugar free drink for the top layer.
Start with a glass full of ice. Pour in the highest sugar content drink to fill the glass about 1/3 full. Next, carefully and slowly pour in the middle sugar content drink, being careful to pour it slowly onto an ice cube to keep it from mixing. Then carefully and slowly top off the drink with the sugar free drink, again pouring it slowly on an ice cube. And presto! Striped Drinks! Great way to decorate the table. So festive! So fun!
