Here’s something you probably didn’t know about me. I’m a drinker.
Not alcohol, mind you, just… beverages in general. I’ve actually never even tasted alcohol, but I do love drinking. I’ve often said if I was told I could never eat again, but was always promised something to drink, I would be absolutely fine with that.
So, since I don’t drink alcohol (not old enough, and really not too interested), I like to experiment and mix my own drinks. Here’s one I recently created.
- Hawaiian Punch (or any punch flavored) single-serving drink powder
- Room-Temperature Coca-Cola (Diet doesn’t work as well)
- Mio Drink Enhancer (Punch) (Optional)
First, in your glass, pour in your powder. I’m talking about those single serving packs you can buy for water bottles and whatnot.
Next, you’ll want 4/5 of the glass full of water. Filtered water tastes so much better than tap (first world problems), but whatever. Add the water slowly to the glass so when it’s filling up, it’s distributing the powder, cutting out the need for stirring later.
Then, you’ll want to add your room-temperature Coca-cola in the remaining 1/5 of the glass. It doesn’t have to be room temperature, but I’ve found it gives it more kick if it’s not as cold as the water.
Then, as an optional step, you can give a quick squirt of Mio drink enhancer to it, for an extra boost of flavor.
Then, it’s ready! It’s a tangy punch-flavored drink that has a bit of an odd ting to it from the coke. Enjoy!
