So, I made some Kool-Aid the other day. Not because I have a kid, but because I rather like Kool-Aid. It's cheaper than soda, I can cut the amount of sugar I add to it, and it can be a nice change from plain old boring water. Sometimes, Ab drinks it, too.
I mixed up some Black Cherry flavor. As I was stirring it, I thought it would be nice if it tasted a bit more like Black Cherry Creme Soda. I added about a half teaspoon of vanilla extract. It smelled great.
I tasted it. It tasted exactly like cough medicine.
So much for experimentation.
Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there, and especially to my mom who made us a whole lot more than Kool-Aid!
