Ollie's Folly

A few years ago we were in a restaurant and had a wonderfully refreshing drink made of Sprite, Orjange Juice and Cranberry Juice. It looked pretty too, each layer was separate in the glass when served so there was a band of orange, white and red. As usual when we got home I began experimenting until I figured out how to create the drink so the bands of liquid stayed separated. I was never very good at Science so it took me quite awhile to figure out that to stop the liquids from mixing you have to pour them on to the ice and not into the other liquids!

Pour in equal amounts of Sprite, Orange Juice and Cranberry Juice over a tall glass filled with ice cubes. Be sure to pour the liquids in the following order (Cranberry Juice, Orange Juice then Sprite), making sure that each liquid pours over the ice and not directly into the liquid below it. Each band of liquid will remain separated, offering a very pretty drink to serve.

Garnish with a slice of orange on the side of the glass. Serve with a straw and allow guests to stir their own if they wish. Very refreshing on a hot summer day.
