Sometimes you don't have the fridge space for a full pitcher, but a small bottle (or several small bottles) can fit in the door!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 (3 -6 g) envelopes unsweetened Kool-Aid powdered drink mix
  • 2 cups sugar (or less if you like)
  • 1 cup water


  1. Stir the Kool-Aid and sugar together in a small saucepan.
  2. Add the water and stir to get it down through the sugar.
  3. Warm over low heat until the water warms up enough to dissolve the sugar, stirring constantly. Don't let it get too hot.
  4. Once the sugar is dissolved, pour the syrup into a clean bottle - old Coffee Mate bottles work well.
  5. Store in the refrigerator.
  6. To use, add syrup to taste to a glass of cold water.

I love this recipe. I used cherry & lemonade as my kool-aid. Made for PAC Fall 09

Hot tap water is enough to melt the sugar. Just give the bottle a shake before you put it in the fridge.

This is a great recipe. There are times I want a glass of kool-aid but I don't want to make a pitcher of it. It takes too long to go thru a whole pitcher. I have made this twice. Both times I made two different flavors. That way I have two flavors to choose from. Thanks for a great recipe that will be made over and over again. .
