Kool Aid Ice drink recipe is perfectly festive for the kids to enjoy at a party or get together!
This may sound silly, but my kids absolutely LOVE it when I take an extra minute or two to make them something special to eat or drink. Even if it’s adding food coloring to the pancake mix – they LOVE it! We do this a ton for holidays and special occasions, but sometimes it’s fun to do “just because”.
Today, I’m sharing a really fun recipe for a Kool Aid Ice that I know your kids will love. Not only does it taste AWESOME, but the kids love it because it changes their drink colors and makes a regular drink like Sprite taste even better (not to mention more fun to drink too!)
If you’re looking for a fun drink to make for a party or “just because” I know these punch ice cubes will be a hit! It’s also known as the Magic Potion drink, so I’m sure your kids will get a kick out of that. 😉 I will warn the Sprite usually turns a little bit of a funky color based on the color of the cubes, but that’s what my kids love most about it. To them it’s so cool (and magical) to watch it change colors. 😉
Making Kool Aid Ice
MIX. Pour one pouch of Hawaiian Punch singles into a almost full water bottle. Shake
FREEZE. Carefully Pour drink into an ice tray. One water bottle fills one ice tray. Freeze overnight.
SERVE. Enjoy with your choice of beverage. Sprite, Punch, Sparkling water, etc.
Tips + Variations
Smokey Cauldron: One of my favorite things about Halloween drinks is when it has the smoky effect. Dry ice is used, however do not mix it directly into the punch.
- Fill the bottom of a large black cauldron or bowl with water.
- Add the punch to a slightly smaller bowl and place it inside the cauldron.
- When you’re ready, drop pieces of dry ice into the water. It will begin smoking.
- Add fruit to the ice cubes for another fun twist
- Substitute Gatorade for the prepared Hawaiian Punch
- Use Kool-Aid for the ice cubes
Make ahead of time: You can mix up the ginger ale and pineapple juice a few hours ahead of time. Keep it covered and stored in the fridge. The carbonation will keep until you add the sherbet and serve it.
Popsicles: If you want to mix the sherbet into any leftover punch you can do so. Once it’s all creamy pour the mixture into a popsicle mold and freeze. It makes a delicious treat. Freeze gummy worms inside the popsicles.
STORE leftover cubes for up to a week in the fridge. The carbonation will eventually fade, but it will still be safe to drink.
