Instructions

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 the desired level. You really need to keep in mind the amount of sugar content in the drinks.

The formula is – more sugar on the bottom and less sugar on top. Theoretically, you could do more layers of color as long as you work your layers working it as lowest sugar starting at the bottom and then building up to the top.
