Lennie, this is really good stuff! Thanks for posting the recipe. I'm not a big koolaid fan anymore, but I've always had it around for the kids. I really like it this way - you don't feel like you just swallowed a mouthful of syrup. This is our new recipe.

Very great idea! I can drink a two liter of Kool-aid by myself in an hour here on a hot afternoon in Florida. This is very tasty, although I will be adding more sweetener next time, but not much more. I did use Splenda instead of sugar, so perhaps that was why it was a little too tart (I have diabetes, so sugar is out for me :( ). All in all, a very refreshing take on a traditional favorite!

Turned out fabulous! Have used washed-out milk containers and a funnel, and have had great success! Won't ever make Kool-aid the "other" way again.

Thank you for this "new koolaide" My son tells his friends it Mom's Famous Koolaide. Don't worry I give you the credit.He loves making it his self. (I love that part) We use a funnel.

This is just the right combination of sweet & tart. It does not have a water downed taste. It is great for large gatherings. My family likes it.

This recipe changed my life! All these years putting 1 cup of sugar per packet! I had no idea that I could deviate with creative independence by not following what was on the packet. What a great way to stick it to the man! One cup per packet? Ha! One cup per packet my patootie! My days of required sweetener oppression are over. I am in your eternal debt!

I've made it like this for a few years ... Seem's like in the late 90's the packets lost some flavor.... Tropical punch is great with 3 packets ...

Nope, nope, nope. I know everyone's entitled to their own way of making Kool-Aid, but this is how it was done in my house:<br/><br/>2 packages of your favorite Kool-Aid<br/>1 cup of sugar<br/>1 gallon of water<br/><br/>In an empty, clean milk jug, add 1/4 gallon of the water to the jug. In a Pyrex measuring cup, mix Kool-Aid in with the sugar so it doesn't stain anything. Add to the jug, put the cap on and shake like mad. Add the rest of the water and shake until the sugar is completely dissolved. Enjoy.
