Don’t forget the kids when celebrating this summer! Instead whip up this super easy kids drink recipe so everyone can have fun.

Don't forget the kids when celebrating this summer! This easy kids drink recipe is perfect for summer parties.

Over Memorial Day weekend, I made a fun white wine red, white, and blue sangria recipe to go with our shrimp boil.  Just a little hello, summer drink.  My kids were fascinated.

After answering questions all weekend long as to why they couldn’t have any, I decided to just make them their own version.

This isn’t really a “recipe.” It’s basically sparkling apple juice with berries in it. That’s it.  But boy were my kids happy about it.

Sparkling juice in a cup with strawberries and blueberries

I had intended to make this easy kids drink recipe with white grape juice to mimic the wine and then add a splash of orange juice in place of Triple Sec.  But in looking around for the grape juice, I found sparkling apple juice on the shelf at the store.

My kids love that stuff and it provides a little bubbly, which makes every kids drink more fun.  I also picked up OJ to splash in.

For the first round, I filled the cups with berries, added the sparking apple juice and then put in some orange juice.

But the OJ made the entire kids drink turn orange.  Total bummer. I wanted it to look clear like our sangria did.

So for the next try, I left out the orange juice. No one cared but me but I felt like the drink looked more like sangria with just the apple juice in it.

Peach juice or white grape juice would be a fun addition.  Or go red with some cranberry juice. Any way you make it, the kids are sure to love having their own special drink recipe for the summer.
