Kid Friendly Vampire Drink

MogoBlog MogoLicious Tasty Tip of the Day: This Vampire Drink is one of the most fun drinks, ever!  I’m telling you the kids went crazy over this drink. It’s not just cool looking, it’s really good, too! It might be kid friendly, but it’s delicious enough for the adults to dig in! Just 2 yummy ingredients, spooky looking, and fun, fun, fun!


    • 2 Liters of Clear Lemon Lime Flavored Soda, such as Sprite
    • Cherry Kool-Aid liquid (the concentrated stuff) – they sell little squeeze bottles of Kool-Aid
    • Ice Cubes – lots!


    1. Either pour the entire 2 liters of soda into a pitcher or even more lemon lime soda into a punch bowl with plenty of floating ice
    2. *Make sure you pack the container – glass or pitcher full of ice. The stacked ice really forces the Kool-Aid into the crevices and makes a cool effect
    3. Then place your vampire fangs on top of the ice, or drape them over the side of the container
    4. Just before guests get ready to drink…squeeze some cherry liquid Kool-Aid into the soda for a very cool blood effect
    5. Watch as the Kool-Aid makes is way down to the bottom in a bloody trail through the ice  and then just kind of hangs there suspended in the soda!


    6. Pour soda into individual glasses that are full of  ice
    7. Place fangs on top of the ice, or drape them over the side of the cup
    8. Then squeeze the liquid Kool-Aid into the glasses of soda
    9. You just need 1 squeeze for 8 oz. of soda – the Kool-Aid will make it’s way down through the crevices of the stacked ice giving a very bloody effect
    10. Bam! You’re Done! Don’t you love the easy stuff?!
    11. Don’t forget to again, watch as the Kool-Aid makes a bloody trail through the ice and then hangs suspended in the soda!


    • A good way to judge how much Kool-Aid you’ll need for a larger container is 1 squeeze per 8 oz. of soda
    • *Eventually, after seeing your cool drink transform before your eyes, most of the Kool-Aid will spread throughout the soda and the soda will take on a layered look. Amazingly, some of the soda will still stay separated from the Kool-Aid. The top half will probably turn a blush color, then red, then clear. The drink starts to combine as you move it around.  If you let the drink sit, it will happen more gradually. I timed my drink that was sitting on the counter,  for about 1/2 hour and it was still not mixed entirely. That cool definition was still there. The Kool-Aid and soda mixed together tastes delicious  – kind of like a Shirley Temple.
