Jello Fizzy Drinks

Today, I have a fun, festive, and easy drink that is a definite kid-pleaser.

fizzy jello drinks (16 of 28) I actually posted about it a few years ago HERE as kind of an afterthought. It was a last minute experiment that turned out really fun, so I blogged about it. :)

fizzy jello drinks (1 of 28) Make some Jello jigglers as per the box directions. Cut them out with a small cookie cutter. About 3-4 small shapes per glass is a good amount.

I chose a heart shaped cutter, since we usually make these drinks around Valentine’s day. It would be super fun with lemon jello and stars as well.

Get everything ready…your glasses (tall clear ones work best), your straws (I added simple washi tape flags to ours) and set your jello jigglers aside.

You want to have everything ready in advance because this drink is as much an experience as it is a refreshment, as you’ll see in a minute.

edit 7 up Add your 7 UP. Sprite and store brands are not fizzy enough. You need to use 7 UP and make sure it is a new bottle. After it has been opened more than a few times, it becomes too flat to work for this drink. Any 7 UP will do. As you can see, I used some original and some cherry flavored.

Now, add your jigglers…

edit5-002 Fun, right?! It’s sure to elicit oohs and ahhs from kids and grown-ups alike. 

I have to warn you though, that once the show is over, it’s over. Even if you add more jigglers and/or 7 UP to your drink, it won’t really work again, unless you are starting again with an empty cup.

    This is such a cute idea! Now I am going to have to experiment and see what drinks here have enough fizz in them to make it work! Maybe I can just super pump our water full with carbonation from our soda maker? Its worth an experiment I think the kids would LOVE this! Definitely happening at dinner tomorrow in the Crawford House!

    Thanks for the several tips contributed on this blog. I have realized that many insurers offer clients generous special discounts if they choose
    to insure multiple cars with them. A significant amount of households include
    several motor vehicles these days, particularly those with old teenage children
    still living at home, as well as the savings
    for policies could soon increase. So it is good to look for a good deal.
