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
clean rag or napkin
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.
