Frosty Patriotic Punch

What could be more cute than a layered punch on the 4th of July? These are really simple to make, look adorable and taste great!

The key to making this recipe work is to look at the sugar content on each item you are pouring! You want to go from the highest sugar content on the bottom, to the least sugar on the top in order to keep the layers separate!

When you pour each layer, be sure to pour very slowly over an ice cube or over the back of a spoon. The slower you can pour, the better.

It’s best if these are made just before serving! The layers will stay separated for a bit however the ice will begin to melt.

1. Fill each glass, cup or bottle to the top with ice.

2. Read each of your labels to see which drink has the highest sugar content, this will go in the glass first (mine was cranberry cocktail). Tip the glass to the side and slowly pour your first layer until your glass is ⅓ full.

3. Choose your second highest sugar content and pour very slowly ensuring you are pouring over an ice cube to avoid mixing. Fill to ⅔ full.

4. Repeat with your remaining layer.

5. Serve and enjoy!
