Red, White & Blue Layered Drink

Happy 4th of July!  We had a BBQ and made these layered drinks for fun.  They were a hit.  How it works: drinks with more sugar are heavier, and they stay on the bottom.  Cranberry juice is on the bottom, then blue Gatorade (not sugar-free), then diet 7-Up (or Sprite Zero).  You also need lots of ice for these.

Cranberry Juice, chilled
Blue Gatorade (not sugar-free), chilled
Sprite Zero or Diet 7-Up, chilled

1.  Fill each glass with ice. Pour the cranberry juice into the glass, filling about 1/3 of the way. Slowly pour the blue Gatorade on top of the ice (if you pour it around the sides of the glass and it hits the cranberry juice directly without filtering over the ice, it won’t create separate layers) and let it flow down until it fills the cup another 1/3 of the way (so now the glass should be 2/3 full). Finally, slowly pour the Sprite Zero or Diet 7-Up on the ice and let it slowly flow down to create the final layer. Serve immediately.
