Kool-Aid Cocktails

aka Crunk Juice. Enjoy yourselves with this non-virgin kiddie-cocktail. Perfect for Memorial Day:

The Tropical Storm

2 oz Tropical Punch Kool-Aid syrup
.75 oz fresh-squeezed lemon juice
1.5 oz dark rum

To make the Kool-Aid syrup: Prepare a package of (unsweetened) Kool-Aid according to the directions, but add half as much water as the package calls for. (That is, one quart.)

To make a whole pitcher* of Tropical Storms (c'mon, you know you want to):
1 package Tropical Punch Kool-Aid
1 cup sugar
1 quart water
1.5 cups fresh-squeezed lemon juice
1 bottle (750 ml) dark rum

*Word to the wise: make sure your pitcher is big enough before you start adding stuff. This version will make about 16 servings, so also make sure you have lots of friends.
