Red-White-and-Blue-Beverages

To keep yourself hydrated, be sure there is a highly festive but non-alcoholic libation available.

These would be a really fun and easy addition to any picnic you are attending or hosting for the Fourth of July holiday this weekend. You can layer drinks in any way you like- the secret is in the sugar content. The beverage with the heaviest sugar content goes at the bottom! The other secret to success with layered drinks is plenty of ice. After you add your bottom layer fill the glass to the top with ice and pour the second layer slowly and directly on top of an ice cube. See the recipe below and enjoy dazzling your friends with this festive concoction!
