This is a fun, sparkly, kid-friendly drink for your Fourth of July party – with a bit of science involved! This is a stratified drink that is layered with a festive red, white, and blue. The way you achieve this is to play with density and velocity of the three liquids you’ll be adding. The dense Grenadine syrup sits at the bottom of the glass. A careful pour of a soda and sparkle maple mixture sits as the middle layer. Everything is topped off with a blue sports drink for a fun and festive treat!
Note: this drink can be quite sweet, so feel free to substitute plain seltzer or reduce the quantities of Grenadine and Sparkle Syrup to taste. This fun experiment can get a bit messy with little helpers pouring, but it’s a perfect outdoor activity for a July 04th barbecue – and this science experiment comes with a sweet reward!
