The ultimate DIY mixed drink, because you know a hard day of being a revolutionary makes you thirsty.  Suitable for all ages.  You can never be too young to start being a rebel.

Well, I named this partly as homage to Instructables member Lemonie because you don't know what is canned up in this guy.  You you might as well make a toast or be toast.  When his comments crack open, they may be highly volatile or subtlely engaging, always refreshing.

Step 1: Common Things Found Around the House...

What you will need:

Large glass jar with lid or suitable glass bottle with tapered neck
ice cubes or crushed ice
lemonade, any citrusy ade will work like orangeade
ginger ale

clean rag or napkin
drinking straw
electrical tape

can opener or leatherman or ka-bar knife or pointy screwdriver and hammer

Ensure that the container you use will be suitable for use in human consumption.
Please, there should be no contaminants of oil, grease, petrol or other chemicals.

Step 2: Peephole

Cut a small hole in the lid by any means necessary.

If you are using a long-neck bottle, skip this step unless you want to use the cap that is on your bottle.

This hole is for the drinking straw.

Step 3: Is It 1/3rd Full or 2/3rds Empty?

Fill the bottom third of your container with lemonade.

I used pink lemonade so it looks like you just siphoned some stuff from the tractor.

This is the classic recipe but you can alter the proportions according to your taste.

Step 4: Chill, Baby...

Fill it up with ice until the liquid level gets to 2/3rds full.

Step 5: Mix Wet Ingredients, or Is That Dry?

Fill up the rest of the way with ginger ale.

Try to gently pour and float the ginger ale on top of the lemonade so you have separate layers of different liquids.

Step 6: Cap It Off...

Replace the cap or lid on top of the jar.

Insert drinking straw in the hole in the cap or lid.

Try not to disturb the liquids to keep the presentation of the layered drink.

Step 7: Tie One On...

Attach your rag to the cap or lid of the jar.

Use electrical tape to seal around the opening with the straw.


Do not use as a projectile of any sort.
Do not set the rag ablaze.  It is used for wiping your mouth after a delicious drink.
Can be consumed when pregnant or nursing but not when hormones are imbalanced.
Enjoy responsibly and in moderation.

Oh thank you! This is exactly what I was looking for. We are hosting a Bonfire Night party and will be serving Irish Car Bombs (Cuz we are multi-cultural that way) but I wanted another drink that maybe the kids could partake of (since I won't let them drink the kool-aid) This will be perfect.<br><br><br>
look alot better in one of those big ol' russian vodka bottles, like stoli or absolut put a red star on the rag for a full affect.
im a optimist i think its 1/3 full !&nbsp;!<br />
I'm an engineer, the glass is 2/3rds bigger than it needs to be. :D<br />
im an angry person, and imma gonna kill the jerk who drank2/3 my mocktail!!! &gt;:( Or... the glass would be 100% full of air, but it cant be because it is 1/3 full of mocktail...
is that from the playue and a platapus book?<br />
&nbsp;exactly :D Engineers are dah bomb<br /> <br />
I thought molotovs were served in beer bottles :P<br />
Yup, be sure to use a straw.<br />
Thank you! The phrase &quot;you don't know what is canned up in this guy&quot; is quite fitting.<br /> <br /> L<br />
yup have to agree.never know what youre going to say next.<br /> &nbsp;and congrats not many of us have a drink/bomb named after us.<br />
No, it was a suprise, but <strong>caitlin's</strong> likes to do this... You posted some good stuff, it's nice to see/read you again.<br /> <br /> L<br />
You have become a drink, destroyer of thirst.<br />
I <em>was</em> wondering where you'd gone - holiday?<br /> <br /> L<br />
adding a bit of chocolate nesquik is good too
I love it!<br />
LOL this is awesome! I think replacing the electrical tape with duct tape would finish it off though! Definitely five stars*****!<br />
Ha ha. Good work. ^.^<br />
sic)<br />

Drink this cocktail, or be first against the wall when Lemonie's revolution comes! You have been warned.
Oh, this is classic.<br /> <br /> Well done, that closet anarchist!<br />
&nbsp;This is so funny!
Viva la revolucion!<br />
