Red and yellow mixed drinks are easy to make at home, and they’re refreshing and simple. A few common ingredients that you probably already have in the kitchen or bar are all you need to make this cocktail. With its semi-sweet, effervescent, and inexpensive price, this is a great cocktail to entertain or serve to guests last minute. A light rum or lemon-lime soda (like 7-Up or any other light soda) serves as the base for this cocktail, while grenadine adds a subtle sweetness and colors it. A splash of lime juice adds a bright citrusy touch. I love the simplicity and the way it is so pleasant. Even though it’s stronger than just a glass of wine, the red and yellow isn’t as light as you might expect.
