"Happy birthday, America!"

That's what Amanda greeted me with this morning. We decided to celebrate with a special Red, White & Blue drink, which we saw featured in Family Fun Magazine. Love that magazine, by the way.

::Happy Birthday America Drink::

Cast of characters:

-cranberry juice (I bought the no-sugar added kind)
-blue Powerade
-club soda (the original recipe calls for diet 7up, but I refuse to give my children diet anything - bad stuff)

-pretty glasses filled with ice (the taller the glass, the more dramatic the end result)


Directions:

1. Pour cranberry juice in the bottom of the glass.
2. Carefully and slowly pour the Powerade onto the ice - this will ensure that the colors will not mix.
3. Pour the club soda/diet 7up onto the ice until the glass is filled.

The end result:




The judge's verdict:

"I give it two thumbs up, America!"

thanks for the recipe, my kids would love this. I will definitely try this one out (plus they would do anything to be allowed some soda, I try to stay away from it as a rule) The drink looks fabulous!

That is the prettiest drink I've ever seen! Awesome photos as well!I will definitely have to have my kiddies try it. I totally agree about the whole diet thing. I'd give my kids sugar before I give them artificial sweetners. I actually get headaches from them and I hate the aftertaste!
