We've always called these drinks "Fancy Drinks." I wish a had a better name but it's what we called them the first time I made them eight years ago and the name stuck. Simple. Direct. Comprehensive.
The whole trick is to mix orange juice or grapefruit juice with lemon-lime soda in equal amounts. A cup of 7-up with a cup of orange juice for example. Fill a glass with the mixture then gently and carefully pour a couple tablespoons of grenadine (cherry syrup) into the bottom.
The grenadine sinks making a beautiful two-tone drink guaranteed to impress any child and most adults. In the picture I used lemonade because I was out of orange juice but you get the idea. Orange juice really works better and looks prettier--just a little advice.
