I saw these drinks a long time ago. I want to say it was on a TV show, but I could totes be wrong.
I know, I'm just as shocked as you are, but it's been known to happen a time or two (or a thousand).
They are SO cool. Iknowright?
Easy and so much fun.
And yes, that is a jar. I love jars for drinks. This tall, skinny jar is from my favorite olives.
Mmmm... I love those things a big gooey lot. So much love.
But enough about those little green gems, on to the drinks!
All ya need is this:
- Clear glasses- the taller, the better (or jars if you like)
- Ice, and lots of it
- drinks with differing sugar contents
You can use more than three, but these were what I had in the house at the time.
Just check the sugar grams on the label.
For these I used:
For these I used:
- Mt Dew - 46 grams of sugar (YOWTCH!)
- V8 Splash- 18 grams of sugar
- Propel- 0 grams of sugar
The Propel is pretty much clear, so I added a dash of blue food coloring.
Then add your ice, allll the way to the top.
Pour in your heaviest (aka most sugary) drink.
Mt Dew for me
Then pour in your second heaviest drink, the V8 Spalsh in my case, slowly, and through the ice.
Here is another I did with a tiny bit of the 2nd liquid it in so you can see the separation
I've found it's easiest to pour from something with a spout. I used a measuring cup.
Then, pour in your lightest drink (Propel here), again, slowly, and through the ice. You can add a little more ice before adding the last color if you need too. Make sure it's all the way to the top.
As I said, you can add more layers, just make sure each color has a significant sugar difference and ending with the 0 sugar drink.
These are great for summer get togethers, parties, holidays, or.. just whenev, ya know.
The Bean thinks I should make these for our Harry Potter party next month. I think I might could do that.
I just found this, it's not where I originally saw these (I'm sure it was on the Food Network), but she has a great video tutorial, so check it out!
