Prep Time5 mins

  • Place 2 cups of ice in a blender and add grenadine. Use an ice-crushing setting to blend into a slush. Pour into 4 separate glasses.

  • Quickly rinse blender. Add 2 more cups of ice, and light lemonade. Blend into a slush and carefully spoon mixture into glasses.
    Serve immediately.

Notes

The soda you use must be full-sugar and not a light or diet soda. The lemonade must be a light or diet lemonade, and not a full-sugar variety.
These melt quickly, so have ingredients and glasses prepared ahead of time, and serve immediately.
I had trouble getting the lemonade to mix into the ice, so I had to use a spoon to mix it in the blender before spooning into glasses.
The layers will mix a little bit, don't be too worried. It gives the layers a seamless, ombre look. I have found that these are best enjoyed in small to medium sized servings.
