Today, I have a fun, festive, and easy drink that is a definite kid-pleaser.
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. 🙂
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.
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.
Where they soften up enough to be slurped up through your straw! 🙂
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.
