Mixing instructions:Add the Gletscher Eis, blue curacao and lemon juice to a Collins glass filled about ¾ with ice. Top almost till full with the lemon-lime soda so that approximately half an inch remains unfilled at the top. Give the drink a quick stir so that the liqueurs and soda mix. Add the crème de framboise by slowly pouring down the inside of the glass so as to create a layer at the bottom of the glass. Add the limoncello by pouring it fairly quickly in circles over the top of the drink/ice floating on the top so it forms a layer at the top of the drink.
