38 What are some good non-alcoholic Kool-Aid mixes?

Blood Kool-Aid: Amy Mundhenk (amundhen@Phoenix.kent.edu)

1 Package Cherry Sugar-Free
1 Package regular grape
1 cup sugar
1 Dr. Pepper
Water to make 1 Gallon

Mix the Kool-Aid and sugar with the Dr.Pepper. Add water. The results
look remarkably like blood and taste like killer pixy sticks. This
recipe was invented by my friend D.M. who is one of those "more vampyric
than thou" types.

Kool Milk Shakes: Russell Hansen (rhansen@powerup.com.au)

First select your favorite Kool-Aid flavor. Take 1/4 tsp of Kool-Aid
powder, 300mls of milk, and 4-5 scoops of ice-cream. It makes a
wonderful treat...

Kool Koffee: Mats Fjellner (d94-mfj@nada.kth.se)

1 red Philips Cafe DUO coffee machine with built-in re-usable filter.
1 packet of Oh-Yeah Orange Pineapple.
Lofbergs Lila (Swedish brand) coffee

Step 1: Pour a small amount of coffee into the filter, and pour a very
thin layer of Kool-Aid on the coffee.
Step 2: Repeat step 1, until you've used the whole packet of Kool-Aid.
Step 3: Turn on the coffee machine.
Step 4: Wait anxiously.

Well, what can I say about the taste? I can imagine this is what the
coffee they serve in hell must taste like. I guess this is the reason
you never hear about people mixing Kool-Aid with coffee. If anyone's
done it before me, they probably freaked out & got locked up in a
cuckoo's nest somewhere. DON'T TRY THIS AT HOME KIDS! Unless you're an
experienced Kool-Aid user & you know what you're doing.

Lemonade with an Orange: Mark Atkins

Use one orange for each packet of lemonade KA. Make KA as usual. Fill
container about halfway. Slice orange, and place slices in KA. Since
the ends of the orange will be mostly peel, I squeeze that to get the
juice into the KA, then toss the peel. Fill container to top, then place
in the cooler. It needs to sit awhile to let everything mix. I let it
set overnight. After you drink your KA, you have tasty oranges to eat.


2 packets UNsweetened red Koolaid mix
2 2-liter bottles soda
1 can frozen lemonade concentrate
1 can frozen pineapple juice concentrate
sugar, as needed

Make up the koolaid ahead of time, by dissolving in a small amount on
water (as little as possible). Don't add sugar! Cool this mixture.
With everything cold, mix it all together, just before the party. You
can add sherbert to keep it cold, or make ice cubes, or an ice cube
ring, using the koolaid mixture. You probably won't need to add any
sugar to this, as the soda, lemonade, and pineapple juice should
contain plenty.

Super Kool-Aid: Brian O'Shea (bwoshea@uiuc.edu)

Here's the Recipe for Brian O'Shea's Super Kool-Aid!
"So good it crunches!" Still legal in 13 states - and Puerto Rico!
(Approval pending in Canada)

12 oz pre-mixed Fruit Punch Kool-Aid (the stuff with the sugar already
in it)
2 packages unsweetened Kool-Aid (I recommend Pink Lemonade and Cherry)
2 1/2 pounds sugar (approx. 1 kilogram) Note: Better more than less!

Put the sugar, sweetened, and unsweetened Kool-Aid packages into a
two-quart container. Add lots of ice, add water to two-quart line, and
shake. Serve! For more entertaining results, add one dose of a
commercial caffeine supplement such as Vivarin per 8-oz serving and
shake until fully dissolved.

Notes: This is best taken when you don't have to get up early -
hyperactivity is a common side-effect.

Santa's Punch: (santaklaus.com)

1 pkg (2 qt) lime Kool-Aid

add sherbet by spoonfuls. Add ginger ale. For red punch, use raspberry
Kool-Aid and sherbet.

Ghoulish Kool-Aid Punch:

Combine 1 envelope unsweetened grape Kool-Aid, 1 envelope
unsweetened orange Kool-Aid, 2 cups sugar and 3 quarts ice water. To
Serve: Stir in 1 liter chilled ginger ale. To make a truly scary
punch, fill a clean, food-safe rubber glove full of water and freeze
carefully. Peel once frozen and float the ice in the punch.

Goblin-Gulp Punch Showcase: (The Kraft Homepage)

1 envelope of KOOL-AID Cherry Flavor Unsweetened
1 envelope of KOOL-AID Grape Flavor Unsweetened
1 envelope KOOL-AID Raspberry Flavor Unsweetened
2 3/4 cups sugar
4 1/2 quarts cold water
Ice cubes

Dishwasher Punch: (amarufre@aol.com)
1 can pineapple juice
1/2 QT. apple juice
1 pack grape Kool-Aid
2 packs grape berry punch Kool-Aid
1 pack Tropical Punch Kool-Aid
1 1/2 packs Strawberry Kool-Aid
11 QTS water
1 red food coloring

Make sure all Kool-Aid is pre-sweetened (or add appropriate sugar.)
Mix all dry together. Add water and juices. Stir well. Add food
coloring until it looks drinkable. Without food coloring, it should
look like it's name.

Grape Ice Cream - 1962: Jaguar (jbaker@inreach.com)
1 package grape Kool Aid
2/3 cup sugar
1 can evaporated milk

Put everything in a bowl, add mixer beaters to the bowl, and put in
freezer until ice crystals start to form around the edges. Put beaters
in mixer and mix on high speed until mixture is very thick--kind of
like whip cream. Put bowl back in freezer (sans beaters) until frozen.
Eat. I've tried other flavors, but grape just seems to be the best.

Kids Summer Punch: Jaguar (jbaker@inreach.com)
1 can frozen lemonade
1 package Kool Aid (usually red)
1 cup sugar
2 quarts plus four juice cans water

Mix everything together. Make sure some of it spills on the floor so
you get that proper summery feel when you walk across the floor
barefoot. If it isn't too awfully hot this will last 3 kids one day.
