Make Yummy Kool Aid Slurpees...

I'm a kid from the 1970's.
Back then...Kool Aid was cool. It really was.
There was no gatorade, powerade or  red bulls.
It was simply a package of Kool Aid for kids for a special treat.
And if you went to a birthday party, it was usually Kool Aid or Pop Shoppe Pop that was served.
I remember drinking Kool Aid even when I was in University...and having a discussion about favourite flavours with my roomies.
I miss those days!
We had packages of Kool Aid kicking around the house, and while I was surfing the net for something else, I came across a recipe for Kool Aid Slurpees.
My kids love slurpees and so does my husband...but they usually buy them from the local corner store.
I decided to whip up some slurpees to enjoy at home...and bring back an old fav...Kool Aid.
 For this drink, you will need:
1 Kool Aid package, any flavour
1/2 cup sugar
A bottle of club soda {or ginger ale would work too!}
Fruit for garnish, if you like
In blender, combine Kool Aid package with 1/2 cup sugar and a cup of club soda.
 Blend together until mixed and foamy.
 Add lots of ice and blend.
{I used the ice crush button on my blender and it worked great!}
 Pour the icy mixture into glasses and add a little more club soda to finish off. 
Garnish with fresh fruit and add a straw.
{This recipe made 4 full size mason jars [2 cup size]}
I made adorable little straw flags by using the template and instructions at this beautiful blog found here.
You know me....I am all about the cute & pretty!
{If you are looking for striped straws and other sweet party accessories, please visit this Canadian company which carries a terrific assortment: Green Munch}
 I think this drink would be great for not only a hot summer day, but for a special dinner at home or a kids' birthday party.
You could also add a little nippy nip of something else for an adult drink.{wink}
And there we have it folks.....a Kool Aid slurpee for just pennies a glass!
