I’m pulling this one out of the archives for you all to see. This rainbow ice cube drink was so much fun, and it was tasty, too!

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.

  • I have five colors here, but I didn’t start out with 5. I had to add a little food coloring to a couple. I originally had Red, Orange, Green and Purple
  • I added a little blue to a jar of melted green for my blue color. 
  • My red wasn’t as red as I wanted, so I added a little more red coloring to darken it

  • To dispense the colors into my tray, I used one of the kid’s old medicine dispensers. If you’ve ever been to the pharmacy for your kids, you probably have one – If not, go to a pharmacy, and tell them you need one. I’m sure they would gladly give you one. 
  • You could probably also purchase an eye & ear medicine dropper for this
  • For each color, I filled the medicine dropper between 4 and 6 mm. If I had extra color, I just filled the dropper up, and squirted some into each section of the tray
  • I started with purple, popped it into the freezer for 30 minutes, took it out and repeated the process for each color in this pattern – Purple, Blue, Green, Orange, Red
  • Don’t forget to freeze 30 minutes between each additional color
  • Another trick, is to aim the liquid onto the plastic part of the ice cube compartment. I did this so the pressure from the force wouldn’t break through the frozen color I already made

  • I used Sprite – a nice clear soda pop to display my fun rainbow ice cubes
  •  I protected the surface with wax paper, before dumping the ice cubes out onto my surface
  • 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
