Rainbow Fizzy Drinks – A Fun St. Patrick’s Day Drink for Kids
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
- 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
