Celebrating Summer with Kool-Aid Fruit Drink

This summer seems to be flying by. I remember my mom telling me “time flies the older you get” and thinking she was crazy. Time moved so slowly when I was a kid. I had no idea how right she would be! I feel like the days go by faster and faster. When I was in Walmart the other day I saw the Kool-Aid Fruit Drink display and had an idea!
I grabbed a 96 oz bottle of Kool-Aid Fruit Drink and then found the aisle with the Kool-Aid drink powder packets.
I remember getting so excited for the 4th of July and all the festivities when I was a child. My small town here in Iowa goes big on the 4th too with parades, bean bag tourneys, horse shoe tourneys, live bands, fire works and more. We would always dress in red, white, and blue growing up. As I was reflecting I was feeling a bit patriotic and figured why stop with just the red, white, and blue clothing? Why not dye my hair?!
I totally did dye my hair! I separated the underneath strands and dyed half red and half blue. It’s so simple to do too! Just boil some water. Mix Kool-Aid powder packets in 3/4 cup of boiling water. For the red I used 2 cherry packets and 2 watermelon packets. For the blue I used 4 Blue Raspberry Lemonade Packets and 1 Grape Packet. I held my hair in the mix for 10 minutes then let my hair dry.
While I was letting my hair dry and getting ready for the night’s festivities, I enjoyed drinking my Watermelon Kool-Aid Fruit Drink. It’s so refreshing and definitely brings back childhood memories. It’s a great way to #KoolOff
I can hardly wait for the Fireworks show! Here is a shot from this year’s firework show in Northwood.
And this is how fireworks make me feel.
I was having so much fun with my Kool-Aid that I decided to make a Kool-Aid Slushie too! Yes, the outside temp has been in the 50’s the last few days, but the sun is shining and it’s summer so a slushie seemed like a good idea and it was really easy to make.
Doesn’t that look refreshing?!
- 1 Kool-Aid powder packet (flavor of choice)
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 cup of club soda
- lots of ice
Mix the powder, sugar, and club soda in a blender. Then add the ice.
