I like to be totally festive…but I do NOT like to spend the day in the kitchen –or even hours! So I’ve whipped together a red white and blue drink that only takes minutes cause that’s how I roll!supplies: Sprite or 7-up, koolaid, Some nerds (cause if sonic can do it…so can you) and red vines…The only real prep is you need to make koolaid…and freeze it in an ice cube tray. (I found this star one at the dollar store!)I decorated some straws with red polka dot vinyl stars from expressions vinylThen I had a package or red vines sitting there for my husband…he loves them (I’m a twizzler fan) and I totally thought…”you could use these as straws!” Just snip off the ends.
Then assemble. (you will want to do this right before consumption) Add ice cubes to the cup (clear works best) then pop…then nerds. THe nerds fizz up and it’s super fun to watch! Add straws and enjoy! The longer it sits there…the nerds dissolve…which is why the drink is starting to turn into purpley color!
the red vine straw totally worked!
