Lemonade Twist

It goes without saying that most of us have grown up on Kool-Aid, how many of us actually admit that we still enjoy this powdered drink mix as adults? Not to mention who would actually serve Kool-Aid at an event? I would, but not in its original form. As much as I enjoyed Kool-Aid as a child, it’s not a first choice unless I’m really strapped for cash. So, check out this delicious recipe and try it out at your next event!

This punch is a great combination between fresh squeezed lemonade and ice blue raspberry lemonade Kool-Aid.

Lemonade

9 Lemons, freshly squeezed

1 c Sugar

12 c Cold Water

Mix freshly squeezed lemon juice, sugar, and water. Stir and add more sugar or water to reach desired taste

Ice Blue Raspberry Lemonade (follow instructions on packet)

1 envelope Kool-Aid mix (keep about 4 packs on hand for this whole process)

1 c Sugar

4 c Cold Water

Mix Kool-Aid mix, sugar, and water until blended well.

You may need to double your Kool-Aid mix and water to match the amount of lemonade made.

Do not add more sugar at this time.

Okay so now you have your Lemonade and your Kool-Aid.

In a large mixing bowl or punch bowl, combine each together slowly.

Add additional sugar and water to taste. For optimal color, add an additional envelope of Kool-Aid mix.

Add a few lemon wedges for a decorative cocktail flair!

Tip: For an added treat, pour mixture into ice cube trays to prevent it from being watered down during your event instead of using regular ice.

Try one of Kool-Aid’s other flavors to match your event’s special colors!
