The 2014 FIFA World Cup will see the U.S. go up against Belgium in an effort to stay in the hunt for the world cup.

The competition has been stiff, but the U.S. has handled the game play with grace.

What better way to show grace and elegance than to display the beautiful colors of the American flag? This time you can do it in your glass.

Gaming at home? The Food Network has a new daiquiri cocktail recipe and just in time for kick off.

Ingredients

Blue:
2 cups ice cubes
1/3 cup blue passion fruit liqueur, such as Hpnotiq or Alize
1/4 cup fresh lime juice (about 4 limes)
2 tablespoons blue curacao liqueur
2 tablespoons white rum
2 tablespoons sugar

Red:
1 cup frozen strawberries
1 cup watermelon chunks, frozen
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice (about 2 limes)
2 tablespoons white rum
1 tablespoon sugar
1 cup ice cubes

White:
1 cup coconut sorbet
1/4 cup rum
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice (about 2 limes)
1 cup ice cubes

Directions
Begin by making the blue layer: Put 1 1/2 cups of the ice cubes in the carafe of a blender. Add the passion fruit liqueur, lime juice, blue curacao, rum and sugar. Blend until slushy and there are no chunks of ice left, adding the remaining 1/2 cup of ice if needed. Transfer to a large measuring cup or small bowl and place in the freezer while you make the next layer.
For the red layer: Rinse out the blender and then add the frozen strawberries, watermelon, lime juice, rum and sugar. Blend until slushy and there are no chunks of fruit. With the motor running, add the ice, a few cubes a time, until thick and smooth. Stir in 1 to 2 tablespoons water if the consistency is too thick. Transfer to another small bowl and place in the freezer while making the final layer.

For the white layer: Rinse out the blender and add the coconut sorbet, rum and lime juice. Blend until smooth and thick. With the motor running, add the ice, a few cubes at a time, and continue to blend until thick and no bits of ice remain.

Pour the red layer into the bottom of six 8-ounce glasses, about 1/3 cup each. Gently spoon 1/3 cup of the blue layer over the red layer so they stay separate. Finish by spooning 1/3 cup of the white layer over the second layer in each glass.
