Today’s guest post was written by my friend Meaghan from Cook. Craft. Love. I’m not the world’s greatest cook (in fact I can’t cook at all) but have come to love Meaghan’s blog. She’s got easy recipes that I can handle, as well as more advanced stuff for all the Julia Childs out there. I know you guys will LOVE this recipe. If you are interested in submitting a guest post, here is how.
Ok, so I know that Erin doesn’t post many recipes for y’all. And I know that you’d probably rather read something side crampingly funny about her life. But I promise that I’m about to wow you with a limeade so out of this world…ok maybe not that out of this world. Since it only has two ingredients and really isn’t that good for you. But as far as fun, festive drinks go this one is pretty awesome.
See? And even though it looks like that glowing green juice the Ninja Turtles drank it doesn’t have the same turtle-y affect. At least not that we’ve noticed. Yet. And if it DOES turn your kids into little green crime fighting turtles then at least they won’t get pinched on St. Patrick’s Day! Cause really that’s what we’re all worried about. We’d hate for our kids to get bullied on the playground for not wearing green on the greenest day of the whole year!
Not much into St. Patrick’s Day? That’s ok! You can take this day-glow, crazy easy drink, slap another name on it, and call it something else! Crazy Christmas Punch, anyone? Or better yet swap out the kool-aide flavor and tailor make this bad boy for any holiday your little heart desires! Kool-aide + sugar + sprite = the easiest festive drink you ever made. Stick a cute straw in it and you’re one step closer to mom of the year!
Or you know…add some booze to it and call it an adult beverage your kids can’t get their grubby mitts on. It’s totally up to you!
1 packet of lemon lime kool-aide
1/2 cup sugar
4 cups cold water
1 1/2 liters of sprite (or 7-up)
1) Mix kool-aid, sugar, and water together until sugar and kool-aid mix is dissolved.
2) Add sprite and serve chilled
Optional: To make some nifty lime green ice cubes using some of the kool-aid just add another cup (or two depending on how many ice cubes you need) of water and pour kool-aide mixture into ice cube trays before adding sprite.
