Summer Kool-Aid Float Recipe

Ice-Cream floats are the perfect cool summer drink to pass the time with little kids. Psssst, you can add vodka too.  Go ahead, try it at home and share your thoughts with me!


1 package of unsweetened Kool-Aid drink mix, any flavor
2 cups of water
1/2-1/3 cup of sugar
4 cups of ice
1-2 scoops of vanilla ice cream

In a blender, combine Kool-Aid, water, sugar, and ice.  Blend.  Pour into two large glasses and add a scoop of vanilla ice cream.  

PS. You can infuse vodka with Jolly Ranchers, much like Skittles or Starbursts candies.  Put your favorite flavor in the vodka for about 8-12 hours without shaking, and then put it in the freezer to chill for a few hours.
