Your kids will love making these treats at home. Make one for yourself too, they’re that good!
This recipe makes one 32-ounce drink:
2 cups club soda – cold!
1/2 cup granulated white sugar
1/4 tsp. + 1 good pinch cherry-flavored unsweetened Kool-Aid
1/2 tsp. cherry extract – (baking section of grocery store)
Using a blender, put 1 cup of the club soda in. Add sugar, Kool-Aid and cherry extract. Blend this until all the sugar is dissolved – will take about 1 minute. Add the crushed ice and blend on high until it becomes a smooth, slushy consistency but there are no chunks of ice left. Add the rest of the club soda and blend this very briefly, just until mixed. Stopping the blender to mix will probably be a good idea at this point, so you can stir up the contents from the bottom of blender.
