Kool-Aid for Recipe Friday

It’s been a crazy week, and I haven’t done much cooking (as in I’ve only cooked once and it’s a recipe I’ve already posted). So I asked my son what I should post for my Friday recipe. He suggested Kool-Aid. (When I typed that while he watched, he inserted: “LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL”.)

Anyway, the recipe for Kool-Aid is about as creative as I get this week. It actually cracks me up that my son likes Kool-Aid because it was what I drank all the time growing up. We even had Kool-Aid stands instead of lemonade stands. I think the reason we drank this a lot was because it was so cheap. So here it is, the incredibly complex recipe for Kook-Aid.


1 packet of your favorite Kool-Aid flavor
¾ to 1 cup of sugar
2 quarts water


Add sugar to 2 quart pitcher. If you like your Kool-Aid very sweet, use 1 cup of sugar. But if you like it a little less sweet, use ¾ cup. Pour in Kool-Aid packet. Fill packet with water and pour into pitcher to get all of the flavoring out. Add remaining water and stir. Refrigerate before serving.

    Thank you, Linda

    Great recipe that I found late!! I had a whole bunch of tiny feet running through the house this week. They’re all gone now and my feet are tired as ever.:-)

    Would have been great to find this while they were here.I have not had Kool Aid in moons. This would have been so much easier than what I did but I didn’t get much computer time while they were here.

    I’ll know what to do next time 🙂

    Blessings much,

    Hi Linda,
    Sounds Delicious, I grew up drinking the stuff too. You did forget that it must be poured into a clear crystal pitcher with a smiling face on the side. We actually had one of those when I was growing up.
    I am sugarless these days, but it still sounds great. I am actually having to resubscribe, for some reason, I no longer get emails when you post. Have a great weekend, God Bless-Jim

    • Jim, My son has been making it in a Belle Plaine, MN Bar-B-Q Days pitcher, and we always used a plastic pitcher when I was a kid. No fancy glass one with the smiley face for us. 🙂
      I noticed I lost a subscriber the other day, but didn’t realize it was you. But I did have to approve a pending comment of yours, which I thought was odd. Anyway, you have a great weekend, too. On Sunday I’ll be down in Texas in the kind of heat you’ve been having. It will be a nice change for me. Peace, Linda

    There are so many cool flavors of Kool-Aid too! 🙂 I love this and it is perfect for my last 2 weeks of not being able to cook much either.
    God bless you and keep you!

    LOL, we don’t get KoolAid in the UK, but some friends kindly sent me some. I don’t drink it – the unsweetened variety is perfect for dyeing silk and wool.

    Have a great weekend.

    • Sounds like a good use of Kool-Aid to me! I don’t drink it any more either, except when my son is persistent that I try some that he has just made. 🙂 Peace, Linda
