Top Kids Party Drinks Tips and Ideas
Kids party drinks will really be dictated by the age group you're catering for. Very small children will not be needing fizzy pop. Juice in a sports top type bottle are usually best to prevent spillage for tiny guests.
It's generally best to steer clear of lots of fizzy drinks unless you want a crowd of hyper children on your hands. Although some of the ideas below do contain fizz, there are plenty of healthy choice ideas also. Substitute fizzy drinks with fruit juice or cordial combined with fizzy water or soda.
Sparking five a day Mix sparkling mineral water or soda water with orange juice. This is a really good way of getting one of their 5 a day inside them. Instead of orange juice you could use cherry, apple, red or white grape juice.
Lemonade Float. I used to spend every summer at my Gran's in Wales. She made these drinks which I thought were really special, and so refreshing on a hot day. Just add a scoop of ice cream to a glass of lemonade and fruit juice. The fizz and the icecream combined makes a fizzy froth. Add a couple of straws and a cocktail umbrella.

Fruit Smoothies – for a healthy party drink blend 2 banana's, 500ml apple juice, tablespoon of oats, 1 tub of yogurt. This makes a lovely tasty smoothie. If you want it sweeter add some honey. Add more juice if it's too thick. Blend well until all the lumps have gone.
