I’m kind of obsessed with the rainbow frozen drink. Makes me wanna chill with Care Bears and My Little Ponies all day. If I include the liquor in this giant drink, it’s only a matter of time before my hopes become rainbow hallucinations. Of course this frozen drink is topped with candy and sprinkles galore. Because food porn, people. Want to make this for kids? Just leave out the liquor! Super easy.

 

The secret to this drink is to use POPSICLES. In order to keep cost down, I purchased a giant BudgetSaver bag with a variety of colors.

Begin making your layered rainbow frozen drink by picking out a large glass. I used an 18-ounce size. Pour clear corn syrup into a dish with edges. Pour rainbow sprinkles into a bowl. Line a piece of parchment paper on a plate and place in freezer. Dip the rim of your glass into corn syrup. Allow excess corn syrup to drip off then dip into sprinkles. Place on parchment paper-lined plate in freezer and allow to set firmly.

Once sprinkle rim is frozen on, create your rainbow layers. For each layer, I used about 2 popsicles (for the bottom blue layer and top pink layer I used 3 popsicles instead). Once you remove popsicles from freezer, work quickly to prevent melting.

 

Cut popsicles off of popsicle sticks and drop into blender. Add about 1 ounce of liquid. If you want al alcohol drink, water works. If you want alcoholic, mix a little liquor with the water into an ounce. Keep in mind when deciding alcohol ratio, that there will be an ounce of liquid for each layer.

 

Blend popsicles and liquid. It should still look fairly dry. Scoop into glass so that it is even across bottom. Leave glass in freezer.

 

Continue with each color. I used blue, green, yellow, orange, then pink piled on top. I made sure the drink layers were a little too frozen so that next layer would sit on top.

 

If you want a rainbow on top of your rainbow frozen drink, cut rainbow Twizzlers to shorten them. I then blended white popsicles from the tropic twin pops bag. Spoon two white piles on each side on top of the pink layer. Allow to freeze a little so that when you stick Twizzlers in, they stay upright. Freeze to set in place. Add a pile of mixed rainbow candy in front of rainbow.

Tips:

-Work quickly when layering popsicles. If they melt, and form any liquid, they will not layer well.

– Leave glass in freezer as much as possible. Only remove when necessary.

-It’s helpful to freeze the rainbow frozen drink so that it is a little too firm, then right before serving, let it sit down to melt for drinking.
