Last night, we had a Part-ay in the house! My mom and my big sis, both have March birthdays, so we celebrated them together. For a fun drink, I made Rainbow Fizzy Drinks! Here’s what I did to make this really fun drink:

Earlier in the day, I made  DIY rainbow ice cubes out of melted Popsicles. This idea was inspired from a rainbow slush I posted in my St. Patrick’s Day roundup. I melted Popsicles and froze each color, one by one, in an ice cube tray. They were so easy to make, and the drink is so awesome. I had no idea that the Popsicle would start oozing into the Sprite, and create this cool effect. Then, the Sprite turned a blushing pink color, until it finally ended with an Ombre of gradual pink to dark purple. 

Here’s What You’ll Need for this fun drink:
(for 1 ice cube tray)

  • 1 double popsicle (twin pops) for each color – red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple
  • lemon-lime soda

    Extra Equipment:

  • measuring spoons
  • ice cube tray

Making the Ice Cubes:

  • I found a box of popsicles, the double popsicle kind at Walmart that had every color of the rainbow (well except indigo…where do you find that?)
  • What you’ll want to do is – for 1 tray of ice cubes – set out one of each color popsicle and let it melt inside the sealed bags
  • Once they are melted, pour each one into a different cup of bowl
  • Starting with purple place 1 teaspoon of melted popsicle into the bottom of the ice tray
  • Freeze the purple for about 30 minutes.
  • Pull the frozen purple out and add the next color – Blue and freeze
  • Repeat with  Green, Orange,  and finally Red

 

To Make the Drinks:

  • Just grab some lemon-lime clear soda and pour some into a cup for the kids
  • Add 1 ice cube per drink
  • The color turns pretty fast, so make sure the guests are ready for their drinks so they can see the fun color changes
  • Plop an ice cube into your soda, and watch it ooze
