Patriotic Drink for Kids

Ice cubes
Cranberry juice
Wild Berry flavor Gatorade Fierce
Diet 7-Up

1. Fill a clear glass with ice cubes to the top. Pour the drink with the most sugar (check the nutrition label) into the glass. For our red, white, and blue recipe, start with the cranberry juice.
2. Very slowly add a beverage that contains less sugar — in this case, the Gatorade. Be careful to pour it onto an ice cube — not directly into the other drink — to keep them from mixing.
3. Use the same technique to add a layer of Diet 7-Up.
