This layered Fourth of July drink will wow and amaze your guests. It is a festive drink that kids will love to help make! It will even teach them a little bit about science.

The drink is made by layering drinks with different amounts of sugar. The bottom layer must have the most sugar and the final layer the least. We found Sobe Pina Colada made a great first layer, Sunny D Orange Strawberry the next and end with low calorie Gatorade G2. When deciding on the drinks make sure you are comparing the same amount of grams.

layered drink ingredients

Fill glass with ice, slowly pour the Sobe Pina Colada to fill the glass about 1/3 full. Slowly pour the Sunny D over the ice creating a nice red layer. Finish off with the low calorie Gatorade.
