What exactly is bug juice you ask? It’s a slang term for sweet juice drink made from powdered mixes, such as Kool-Aid, which are often served at summer camps. You can also buy the drink bug juice from the store but why buy it when you can make your own… and add cute little bugs!
• Kool-Aid or Single Pack Drink Mix (in a variety of colors and flavors)
• Sugar (optional)
• Gummy Worms
1. Mix the Kool-Aid or Drink mix as directed on package. If you are mixing in a water bottle (like
I did) use less mix or a single pack drink mix.
2. Add sugar if needed.
3. Add gummy worms to your drink.
4. Garnish with gummy worms, serve and enjoy!
Note: Gummy worms will soak up the water. You can place the gummy worms in the drink right before serving to avoid that.
This is a much healthier way of serving up Bug Juice to kids because you can control the amount of sugar (if any) they receive. Plus since it’s made mostly of water, it could make a great drink for those hot summer days!
