  • Add ice to glasses.
  • Fill with grape juice until about a 1/3 full.
  • Make sure ice is floating on top and above the juice if not add a few cubes, this prevents the next liquid from mixing.
  • Slooowly, pour the Orange drink onto the ice and fill to desired level.
  • The key to this is the sugar content of the drinks. More sugar on bottom less sugar on top. Theoretically, you could do more layers of color as long as you work your layers most to least sugar bottom to top.
