Fourth of July Drink

Happy 4th of July! On July 4, 1776 America gained it's independence from Britain making today Independence Day. In America, most people celebrate this day with barbecues, watching fireworks, and going to the beach and/or pool. Today, it's very gloomy and rainy out in New York. Usually it's very hot and warm out on this day. Hopefully, I am going to go to the beach tomorrow.

I wanted to show a drink I recreated using the Fourth of July drink that Bethany Mota (macbarbie07) did a video on, last year. Even if you aren't American, you can make this drink.

First you will need three drinks. It's very important you get the right drinks or it won't look as cool.

1. Sprite Zero (The amount of Sugar will keep it from mixing with the other two drinks)
2. Cranberry Juice
3. Gatorade (The dark blue works better, but I use the light blue)

You will also need a glass that can fit the whole drink. I love Mason Jars because they make the drinks look really pretty and hold a lot of volume.

First: Fill up glass 1/3 of the way with ice.

Next: Pour in cranberry juice. 1/3 of the glass should be filled now.

Then: Fill up the rest of the glass with ice.

After: Pour the Sprite in, so 2/3 of the glass is filled.

Lastly: Pour the Gatorade in.

The colors will mix into each other.

I dyed the drinks to emphasize the different layers.

The drink is really sweet but is carbonated because of the soda. I personally like this drink a lot. It doesn't take that much time to make and it's good for parties or get togethers.

Happy 4th of July!
