How to make a Fun Dip Drink for kids
I love how places like Sonic and Dylan’s candy bar use candy in their drinks.
It’s a super easy way to put a smile on someone’s face, because let’s face it. Most people like candy.

- Cherry Fun Dip
You can probably use a different flavor of Fun Dip but Cherry is my forever favorite.
Plus, with the grenadine, it’s easy to get that sweet faux cherry flavor.
I don’t even know where I would start if I wanted this to taste like the blue flavor which is a combination of green apple and raspberry.
And if you want to make this drink a little more adult-friendly you can try my Sweet and Sour Cherry Fun Dip Mixed Drink.
The flavor is a little bit different than this non-alcoholic version but still super sweet and tasty.
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.
Also, you can use any lemon lime soda to get those bubbles and flavor. I just happened to have Sprite.
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.
This drink is full of sugar. It’s not something I would make my kids often. But it is one of those fun things to make to create a little mom magic.
My sister is usually the one my kids think of as the “fun aunt”. At least when I serve this Fun Dip drink recipe I win the fun contest for a minute.
