Red, White, Blue, & Icy Cold Drink Recipe

Keep cool by the pool with these cute 4th of July themed drinks! This is a great summertime treat to make with the kids. It only requires a few ingredients, a few minutes to make, and minimal cleanup!

We like using our WeeSprout silicone freezer tray for this recipe because it’s super easy to pop ice cubes out when they’re ready and the lid prevents messy spills in the freezer, but any ice cube tray will do. Our ice cubes only took around 30-45 minutes to freeze.

Check out these 3 Variations of our Red, White, & Blue recipe for an icy cold drink to beat the heat at 4th of July pool parties, BBQs, and picnics!
