Add this fun drink to your 4th of July Menu.

What to Buy:

For the non-alcoholic version all you need is Sprite or your favorite lemon-lime soda and a package of bomb pops!

Then it’s as easy as filling your cups with ice and swirling in an original bomb pop.

The flavors of cherry, lime, and blue raspberry will blend with the sprite to create the perfect thirst-quenching summer drink.

Spiked Bomb Pop Cocktail Instructions

To make a boozy version of this drink, start with a simple gin and tonic recipe.

I like about 1.5 ounces of gin added over ice with a squeeze of lime. Then top with lime sparkling water and stir in the bomb pop.

If you want a sweeter version, use sprite instead of sparkling water and that’s it! You can also use vodka instead of gin if you prefer.

Everyone loves a little festive fun during the holidays and it doesn’t get much easier than this!
