Recipe Monday: Drinks


It's hot (relatively) in both Waco and Minnesota right now. That calls for some cold drinks. Here is a personal favorite. Please feel free to add your own in the comments section below.

Kool-Aid Disaster Punch

Ingredients:

1 packet strawberry kool-aid
2 cups sugar
6 ounces frozen orange juice concentrate

Um... that punch needs some pep.
 
My "Drink" (I don't have a goofy name for it)

They still sell Kool Aid?

What beverage would taste best with Baba Ganoush?
 
This blog is stupid. Kool-Ade was invented a lont time after Benjamin Franklin was alive. You need to WAKE uP and write about something good and not try to fool people with lies about Kool-Ade.

Also, if you actually think that Prof. Osler hand-illustrates all the things on this blog, you may want to check out this fly-by-night operation called "Google Images".
 
Actually, I do hand-illustrate everything on this blog, and will vouch for the historical accuracy of this encounter between Ben Franklin and Kool-Ade Man.

Postscript: That encounter ended badly.
 
It's true. I was there and saw it.
Franklin had a rep for being a real jerk before that incident, and let's just say that day did nothing to dispel that notion.
And you should have seen him-- all red-lipped and still trying to deny any knowledge of Kool-Aid's whereabouts.
Ben freaking Franklin-- don't trust him farther than you can kick him.

...electricity... yeah, right.... as if
 
Yes, Ben Franklin wanted to make Kool Ade the official beverage of the original 13 colonies.
 
Well, 12 colonies. NJ adopted "booze" as its official beverage in 1774.
 
Just one pitcher of Kool-Aid was not enough for Benjamin Franklin. And the biggest pitcher on earth was standing there, taunting him...

You can hardly blame the guy. If a giant pitcher of Kool-Aid was standing there, lecturing you about how great it tasted, when all you really wanted was a drink, what would you do?
