Kool-Aid Ice Cubes In Sprite Or Water

Our easy Kool-Aid Ice Cube recipe takes only 5 minutes to make by dissolving sugar and powdered drink mix in water and then freezing the liquid into colored ice cubes.

These colorful ice cubes taste great with water, Sprite, white grape juice, or your favorite Kool Aid flavor – it’s always fun to watch translucent drinks turn tinted when the ice melts and blends into the beverage.

Pop a few different flavors together in one glass to make a fruit punch mixture or keep your kool aid cubes separate as a single color – kids will love to splash flavored ice cubes in sprite and sip on a sweetened soda.

Who knew that a frozen cube could bring bright color to a clear beverage and make it even better? The perfect drink cubes for parties or even to eat as a cool snack.

Tips For Making Kool-Aid Ice Cubes

  • I like to place my ice cube trays on a flat, firm, moveable surface like a tray or cookie sheet. This makes transportation to the freezer a lot easier. 
  • Use a drink pitcher with a pour spout. 
  • The colors will run slightly when you add the cubes to a beverage. But they won’t mix or blend together right away. 
  • You can’t taste the Kool-Aid flavoring immediately but you can taste it over several minutes! However, it is mild. 
  • You can mix different flavors of cubes together in one glass or keep them separate.

How to Store Kool-Aid Ice Cubes

  • To Store: Store your ice cubes in a freezer-safe bag in the freezer for a few months.
