How to make a Cherry Fun Dip Drink
Even though this isn’t a cocktail, a cocktail shaker means that you can chill this non-alcoholic drink quickly and ensure the candy dissolves easily.
Add a packet of Cherry Fun Dip to the cocktail shaker.
Then add the grenadine and lemon juice.
Add ice, then shake well.
The outside of the shaker will get chilled and so will the fruity drink ingredients inside.
Add the Sprite and use a bar spoon to stir.
You do not want to add soda to a cocktail shaker and shake it. It will explode.
And that’s just a huge mess.
Grab a small glass and fill with ice.
Then pour the ingredients in the cocktail shaker over the ice.
Garnish with a Lik-a-Stix.
If you don’t have grenadine, you can also use the liquid in a jar of maraschino cherries.
