One of my kids’ favorite 4th of July traditions is making red, white and blue ice cubes to decorate a clear cup of 7-up. We don’t drink much soda in our house so 7-up on the 4th of July is a special treat. This beverage is very easy to make.
- Red Gatorade
- Blue Gatorade
- 7-up or other clear soda
Make red & blue ice cubes a day or two ahead of time. You can also make white ice cubes with lemonade, 7-up, or any clear beverage. I didn’t have enough ice cube trays so we just made red & blue ice cubes this year.
Now, here’s the tricky part, finding a spot in the freezer to put the tray and getting it in there without spilling!
Success! Now you also get a little peek inside the freezer. Looks like we’ve got homemade frozen pops in several flavors, a bag of chopped onion, pesto, store bought popsicles, soy ice cream, frozen zucchini slices, and a mystery soup of some kind.
🥶 What’s in your freezer?
When the ice cubes are frozen you can quickly assemble the festive drinks immediately before serving.
I found an older post with one of our other favorite 4th of July traditions, reading holiday themed picture books:
