Candy Corn Punch
1/3 part Crush orange soda
1/3 part yellow Gatorade

Fill your cup/pitcher/whatever you are using up to the very top with ice.
Pour the orange soda in first until you’ve filled about 1/3 of your glass.
Next, slowly pour the Gatorade directly on top of the ice and let it trickle down on top of the orange soda until it fills 2/3 of your glass.
Finally, slowly pour the lemonade on top of the ice and let it trickle down on top of the Gatorade.
*Note: Take care not to stir this drink or it won’t work.
