Red, White, and Blue Punch

Continuing the festivities, a friend recommended that I make this colorful punch for the 4th of July.  Done!  So simple, and tasty, too.  While I like the layers, I do recommend stirring to serve.  Otherwise, you're just serving one layer at a time, and not a mixture of those tasty flavors.  They do blend nicely. :)

  • Cranberry juice (I used a cranberry/raspberry mixture)
  • Blue Gatorade Frost
  • Diet Sprite (it HAS to be diet to separate to its own layer)
  • Ice
  1. Put ice in bottom of pitcher or beverage dispenser.  Pour cranberry juice on top, filling pitcher about 1/3 of the way.  
  2. Then pour Gatorade, being careful to pour it onto the ice, and not just into the pitcher.  If you pour over the ice, it will not mix in with the cranberry juice- it will make its own layer on top.  Pour until the pitcher is 2/3 full.  
  3. Then pour the Sprite over the ice until the pitcher is full.
