Mermaid Water Mocktail: A Refreshing Kid-Friendly Drink!
I remember when I was a kid and the simplest things used to make me happy. Who remembers the excitement of drinking a fancy kid-friendly drink? Now that you’re the mom, you get to create those happy memories! This sweet mocktail is the perfect beverage to have by the pool. It even has a fun ombre effect that kids will love! Here’s how you can make your own Mermaid Water Drink.
● Pineapple Juice
● Gatorade Zero Sugar, Berry Flavored
● Gatorade Frost, Glacier Freeze
● Tall Glass
● Ice Cubes
Ombre Mermaid Water Drink Recipe:
- Start by filling your glass completely to the top with ice cubes. If you would like to use a straw, it’s best to insert your straw in the glass before pouring your liquids, otherwise the straw will disturb the layering process.
- Pour the pineapple juice over the ice, filling the glass a little over a third full. Next, very slowly pour the Gatorade Zero Berry over the pineapple juice, filling the glass about ¾ full. If the Gatorade begins pouring too quickly it will mix into the pineapple juice. A trick to help pour slowly is to hold a spoon with the backside facing up across the glass, and pour the Gatorade over the back side of the spoon. It will slowly trickle into the glass, and keep it from mixing with the pineapple juice.
- Lastly, pour the Gatorade Frost Glacier Freeze slowly over the Gatorade Zero Berry. The two will slightly mix together, and create an ombre effect, while still separating from the pineapple juice.
That’s it! Now it’s time to enjoy your yummy drink! Want to kick it up a notch for the adults? Add a splash of rum! This will be your go-to summertime beverage. It’s perfect for parties and get-togethers. Serve up a little summer fun!
