Ombre Drinks for a Summer Party by Pixiebear

Ombre Drinks always look so impressive on the party table. They add a nice color pop and make a great conversation topic. Your guest will wowed by the professional look and would be curious to know how you made these. You’d be surprised how simple these are to make!

The idea is to mix a lighter drink (like juice) with a heavier drink (like syrup) and the secret is in how you pour them together.

For these non-alcoholic Ombre Drinks you will need:

Orange Juice

How To Make Ombre Party Drinks:

1. Fill about 2/3 of the glass with Orange Juice.

2. Slowly pour Grenadine into the glass. It will sink to the bottom creating a nice gradient effect along the way. You may need to practice a bit (It took me a few tries to get it right), but you’ll get the hang of it. Just remember to pour slowly. If you do it too fast the Grenadine and Orange Juice might stir together and the ombre effect will be lost.

3. Gently add a little bit of Sprite.

4. Don’t forget to add decorated straws! I used striped straws which I cut in half so they’d fit the glass. Since these drinks were used for a Summer Party, I added beach-themed straw flags, but these drinks can work for other party themes as well!
