Cowboy Kool-Aid Drink Recipe
Serving size: 250 mL (1 cup)
- 1 pint (190 proof) Everclear
- 1 can Frozen Limeade Concentrate (Minute Maid)
- 6 cans Mountain Dew
- 1 Cup Water
How to Make It
Take a clean, empty, plastic gallon jug. Pour in the smallest can of frozen limeade you can find, about 6 oz. Add all six cans of ice-cold Mountain Dew. Pour the entire pint of 190 proof Everclear into the jug. Add enough cold water to bring the brew close to the top of the jug (about a cup or so.) Now shake it very, very gently with the lid on the jug. It'll fizz, so don't shake it hard!
Pour into mason jars (or sip right from the jug if you're so inclined) and enjoy.

This is a recipe created in 1980 by some cowboys I knew, and I've since passed it down to my son and his friends. Keep the tradition going!
