Pinned It, Did It – Kool-Aid Ice Cubes

NOW HOW COME MY PARENTS DIDNT DO THIS FOR ME WHEN I WAS A KID??  KoolAid ices cubes in sprite. The drink changes flavor as the ice melts!   IM TOTALLY GOING TO DO THIS NOW!

When putting together a Pinterest To Do list this week, this kiddy cocktail idea looked so easy, it was a no-brainer to add it to my list.

It seemed like a great idea, but to tell you the truth, mine didn’t turn out as vibrant as the original pin.  The idea was to freeze different colored Kool-Aid in ice cube trays and then use the ice in a glass of Sprite.  The Sprite picks up the flavor of the Kool-Aid as it is sipped.

My ice cubes were a little slushy because of all the sugar I suppose, and they melted fast and turned the Sprite red.  Then there wasn’t much contrast between the drink and the ice.  It did do a stellar job of flavoring the Sprite, and my children were delighted to have soda with dinner, so it was still a success in their eyes.

I do think I will do this again for a special occasion like a child’s birthday party, but I’ll chill the Sprite first and hope the ice takes longer to melt.  Perhaps using less sugar would allow the ice to freeze more solidly.  Come to think of it, this would be a great activity to do if we have a color of the week.   Yay Pinterest!
