Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: Supplies

Grab your supplies of...

1 cup of sugar
2 quarts of water (8 cups of water)
2 quart Pitcher or container of your choice
Big spoon
Brita filter (optional)
Cup (optional)
Straw (optional)
Ice (optional)
Need for a good drink (Not optional)
And most importantly

A packet of your favorite type of Koolaid.

Step 2: Getting Started

Pour your sugar into the pitcher, until desired amount of sugar occupies pitcher.

Step 3: Apply Your Drink Mix

After you are done pouring your sugar, take your drink mix packet and tear open the top.

If you tear open the bottom...
1. It will burst into a Flaming Fireball. Or,
2. You will not get all of the drink mix in the pitcher and you will have a pitcher of nastiness.

Step 4: Most Pouring in Instructables History.

Actually, i need clearance from one of the staff to say that.. But, once you are done with pouring your drink mix, Start pouring the water from the Brita pitcher to the Koolaid Pitcher. Or stick the pitcher under the sink for a while to get sand, dirt, bugs, skittles, sound cards, toyotas and back hoe's into your pitcher of deliciousness.

... It will be like fruitcake.

Step 5: Stir It Up..

C'mon and stir it up, oh darlin' stir it up. Well, what Bob Marley said..

This is probably the most important step, if you don't stir it enough it will not taste good, and you will end up with a Really sour, nasty drink. Shaking works too but make sure the seal on the container is good enough by filling it with water and holding it upside down over the sink.

Step 6: Clean Up and Drink!

Rinse off your spoon (if you used one) and put it in the dish drainer. Put a lid on your Container. Add ice to your cup, pour some drink into your cup and Enjoy!

    Aren't these instructions on the back of every koolaide packet? And what about the packets that have the sugar already pre-mixed?

    the premixed packets fail i bought the orange one and tasted ok but its better when(omg sandboxmod finally downloaded)you add ur own sugar and lol i didnt think youd need instructions for kool-aid i thought it was common knowledge.

    I make mine by the gallon, but instead of just 2 packets, I use 3. I hope that doesn't blow anyones mind, but it tastes way better.

    I mix cherry and lemonade flavor and only 3/4 as much water as needed. it's AWESOME! I always find myself using more mix for all those flavored drinks. the suggested amount tastes way watered down.. and just a little more sugar so it won't be so tart. but some people like the tartness. also remember those sour candy spray bottles? you can re fill them with just plain kool aid powder, no sugar (or just a tiny bit), and water. it does clog up the sprayer.. but that's gotta happen eventually.

    I kinda make a variation of that sometimes, when i make a 2 liter, i double and a half the recipe, take it to bon-fires and texas hold em' things and it blows everyone's mind.

    I find that if you use 1 cup or more of hot water first, the sugar dissolves much better, making for a less gritty beverage

    "1. It will burst into a Flaming Fireball." I believe it. Awesome job on this one.
