Posted in response to a request for pastel blue punch on the boards a long while back, I figured I should probably go ahead and post this one officially so the recipe wouldn't get lost. Pink punch is easy enough to make, for little girls, but blue is a bit more elusive. :)

Ingredients

Nutrition
  • 7.08 g package unsweetened Kool-Aid powdered drink mix, powder (amount in package varies on the type used, could be anywhere between .15 to .25 ounce)
  • 1 sugar
  • water, according to Kool-Aid directions
  • 283.49 g can frozen Pina Colada mix (thawed)
  • 2000.0 ml bottle 7-Up soda (to taste) or 2000.0 ml bottle Sprite (to taste)
  • 473.19 ml vanilla ice cream

Directions

  1. Mix together the Kool-aid, water, and sugar according to the package directions.
  2. In a punchbowl, combine the prepared Kool-aid, thawed Pina Colada mix, and 7-Up or Sprite.
  3. Add scoops of vanilla ice cream.
  4. Serve and enjoy!
  5. Note #1: the Kool-aid company changes it's flavors and colors all the time, so you'll need to investigate what is available when you're making your punch; past flavors/color combinations that worked were Berry Blue and Raspberry Reaction.
  6. Note #2: if you make up some ahead of time, you can also freeze a ring of prepared Kool-aid and put it in the punch bowl, or make ice cubes with it and add them into the punch.
  7. Note #3: folks have asked me what the Pina Colada mix is for, so I thought I should add it to the recipe. :) It's to make the punch a pastel color, rather than bright blue. It's up to you whether or not you use it, but I think it's tasty!
