Sue L--These were absolutely smashing. I served these for Zaar Cookathon/4th of July cook-out. Total hit. Not only did they taste delicious, they looked so festive and patriotic. I had 3 blenders set up at our bar. We had a lot of guests so this made things easier. Great idea :)

I made these for my parents and their friends yesterday (the Fourth of July) and they said they were delicious! They were not exactly what I pictured; the colors were not as bright as I thought they would be, and they didn't form perfect layers when I poured them on top of one another. Instead, they made a sort of marbley effect. Still very cool, everyone loved them - thanks for such a neat idea!
