Sobe Pina Colada
Gatorade Fruit Punch
G2 Gatorade Blueberry-Pomegranate
1 Part Whipped Cream Vodka

Start by filling glasses to the brim with ice then pour the drink with the highest sugar content into the cups (Sobe Pina Colada) and fill them approximately one third full. For the second layer pour the second drink with the lower sugar content slowly (Gatorade Fruit Punch) through the ice to fill approximately the second third of the glasses. Finish with the sugar-free drink (G2 Gatorade Blueberry-Pomegranate) and top each glass with vodka. The vodka will sit on top of the creation. Be careful, this drink can be very strong!

Adams also served as lawyer for Hancock, who got into a kerfuffle in 1768 when the British seized his sloop, the Liberty, in Boston Harbor, claiming - charges that didn't stick - that Hancock had avoided paying duties on most of his shipment of Madeira, a fortified wine.
