Vampire's Blood for Halloween

I am not a Halloween person but this year I have done a few crafts for this holiday and decided that I wanted to make a drink.  I first want to make something with candy corn as that is my favorite Halloween candy but I couldn't figure out how to make the colours to stay layered.
So I decided to make some blood with congealed blood too.  

Vampire's Blood

Sanpellegrino Sparkling Pomegranate & Orange
Lemon Lime Soda
Orange Juice
Cherry Jello*
Ice Cube
Candy blood (optional)

Add ice cubes to glass or jar - about 1/2 of the container.
Pour in Sanpellegrino so that the jar or glass is filled 2/3 full.
Add a good splash of orange juice.
Add 1 tbsp of Cherry Jello, it is ok if it breaks into small pieces or stays in one blob.
Top the drink with Lemon Lime Soda.
Optional:  I found candy blood and dripped it around the lid and down the side.

*Cook's Note:  You can either make your own jello or buy prepared jello.  I used a prepared jello and used one container.
