DIY Kool-Aid Drink Station - colorful & delicious!

Here comes a fun DIY drink station, perfect for your next party or casual gathering.  It is colorful.  It is kid-friendly.  And it is delicious!  Made with Kool-Aid Easy Mix and little preparation, this do-it-yourself drink bar will be a fun treat for your family and friends.  Your guests will enjoy creating fantastic combinations of flavors, drinks and fresh fruit drop-ins.  It is a refreshing way to celebrate Spring!

The drink station is very simple to put together.  Kool-Aid Easy Mix comes in three flavors:  Cherry, Tropical Punch and Grape.  I wanted to have all three for my family and friends to try.  The mixes are very inexpensive (only $2.78 at Walmart) and I was pumped at how simple they were to use.  They are liquid and the bottle gives measurements for a single glass or a pitcher.  (It makes 6 quarts or 3 pitchers)  Easy, right?  And perfect for my drink station!

I also picked up Sparkling Mineral Water, Club Soda and assorted fresh fruit (strawberries, grapes, raspberries, blueberries and clementines).  For those who don’t want the fizz of sparkling water or club soda, I included regular ice water on the table too.  Be sure to chill your sparkling water and club soda before your friends arrive.

Instructions for your DIY Kool-Aid Easy Mix Bar:

1.  Pick your Kool-Aid Easy Mix flavor.

2.  Measure out and pour 3 tablespoons into a glass.

The Kool-Aid Easy Mix directions call for 1.5 tablespoons for 8 ounces of water.  Because my glasses were tall, I instructed friends to pour 3 tablespoons in their glass.

3.  Add water, sparkling water or club soda.  

I had pre-measured to see what 16 ounces looked like in my glasses.  This way I could help others.

I loved the way the fruit looked in the drinks!
