The Handled Mason Jar Mugs and Star Themed Paper Straws are from Fillmore Container. To make the drinks, you’ll need diet lemon lime soda, blue Gatorade (believe it or not, there is more than one shade of blue Gatorade that would work for this) and Cranberry Juice. You’ll also want to have some ice cubes on hand.

Add some ice to the mugs and then pour some cranberry juice over them.

Next S-L-O-W-L-Y add the Gatorade. I mean slooowly. If you do it too fast, the colors will muddle together. Finish with a splash of that diet soda.
