Red, White, and Blue Soda

I love the 4th of July, its a great holiday to spend time with family and friends.  I also love watching fireworks.  My husband’s birthday is on July 5, so we get to have celebrations two days in a row.  When I think of the 4th of July, I think of sitting outside with good food and good drinks.  

This is a great way to jazz up a regular soda and make it more festive for the holiday.  This is fun for kids and great for any 4th of July party.  Also, its so easy and the only time needed is to make the ice cubes.  First start with Sierra Mist, Sprite, 7UP, or Ginger ale.  Then add Gatorade or Koolaid flavored blue and red ice cubes to the soda.  The flavors of the ice cubes add great flavor to the soda when they start to melt. This is a great way to jazz up any soda for the holiday.

Red, White, and Blue Soda

1 can of soda, use either Sierra Mist, Sprite, Ginger ale, or 7UP
2 ice cubes of Fruit Punch Gatorade (can also use Kool Aid or any other red drink)
2 ice cubes of Glazier Freeze Gatorade (can also use Kool Aid or any other blue drink)

1.  Pour the can of soda into a glass and add the blue and red ice cubes.  Drink and enjoy!
