Excellent drink! It is certainly appropriate for our election night celebration! However, I did not use sugar free soda and it turned out fine. I did have to switch the gatorade and soda around due to sugar content.

We loved this drink! Even the adults! It really tasted like cranberry juice & 7up, which we mix & drink all the time. I was worried about the Gatorade, but it didn't have a negative effect on the flavor. My photo isn't quite as beautiful as NCMS', so I'll post it in the photo forum instead. But I wanted to warn everyone that I accidentally bought regular 7up & that's why it started to sink & mix with the Gatorade. Also, there are two kinds of blue Gatorade at my grocery store. One that has a name like "Frosty Blue", "Ice Blue" or something like that & then the original dark blue with no specific name. I used the dark blue. Thanks for posting Pam! I can't wait til next year to make it again!

My kids had so much fun making these for the Fourth of July! They tasted really good, too. We used fruit punch and Cool Blue Gatorade.

Loved the science and look of this drink but kids nor myself cared for the taste. Used a spoon to drizzle the blue in-basically to help the liquid "float" Use ingredients as stated because the weight of each ingredients is what keeps it from mixing. Thanks so much for posting.

It consists of a sports drink so kids do not recommend drinking it

This did not work for us. Not sure what I did wrong so any advice would be helpful. All the liquids blended together. Please let me know so I can try again.
