Red, White, and Blue Drink Recipe

Kids and adults alike will be wowed when you serve up this red, white, and blue drink recipe on the Fourth of July. The drinks totally deliver on the wow-factor—and even combine a science experiment and a tasty drink into one pretty package.

The best part? They are super simple to make!

Line them up in a row for an impressive patriotic party display, or let your guests make their own and learn the secret to the red, white, and blue layers.

Curious to find out the magic of those three red, white, and blue layers? The trick may surprise you!

Here’s the scoop!

Ingredients and Supplies

  • Clear glasses or Mason jars
  • Ice
  • Straws
  • Strawberry Daiquiri Margarita Mix (This is non-alcoholic) – 43 grams sugar
  • Cool Blue Gatorade (regular, not Gatorade Zero) – 21 grams sugar
  • White Gatorade Zero – 0 grams sugar
  • (Or any red, white, and blue drinks with varying sugar content)

Instructions for Red, White, and Blue Drink Recipe

Red, White, and Blue Drink Recipe
  1. Start by picking up a red drink, blue, drink, and white drink to layer together. The key here is to pick three drinks with varying sugar content. (The drink with the most sugar will sink to the bottom!) For example, the margarita mix has 45 grams of sugar per serving, the blue Gatorade has 21 grams of sugar per serving, and the white Gatorade Zero has 0 grams of sugar per serving.
Add ice

2. Now it’s time to get your glasses (or Mason jars) and fill them 3/4ths of the way full with ice.

Pour Margarita Mix

3. Create the first layer by pouring in the drink with the highest sugar content. (In my case, that was the margarita mix.)

Pour Gatorade

4. Add the next layer by pouring in the drink with the second highest sugar content. (Mine was the blue Gatorade.)

5. Them pour in the drink with the least sugar. (Mine was the white Gatorade Zero.) Top with a straw, and there you have it! Be careful not to mix the drinks or slosh them around too much, or the three colors will start to blend together!
