America's most patriotic party weekend is upon us. If you're looking to wow guests at a festivity you are hosting or attending, try making a layered drink. The creative concoction is the stuff of Pinterest dreams, and it can be anything from a mixology masterpiece to a lighter, summer refreshment.
We're going with the second option.
In honor of this weekend's jamboree, we designed a red, white and blue layered drink for spirited sipping. Fair warning: Making these drinks can be frustrating — one of our attempts to make a layered punch resulted in a purple liquid more apt for a Prince Memorial Party. The key is to pick liquids with different densities, specifically measurable by the amount of sugar in the drink.
