I found this recipe three years ago and you can't tell the difference. I took it to work, had my boss try it and he thought is was the real thing! My kids love it and with summer coming i'll be making it again thank you so much!
Very good tea. The only problem is it does not last very long. This tea is also good with other flavors of kool aid.

I love this recipe because when I made it, it's just like having the store bought. I make it by the gallon and so it's 6 teabags, 1cup + 3/4cup + 1/8cup of sugar, and 1 packet of koolaid. Also for the store look, I have empty lipton 20oz bottles that I wash and re-use so I don't have 1 pitcher in the fridge but 8 or more portable bottles. Good for travel.

I'm diabetic so use 20 packets of Sweet-N-Low instead of sugar and about 1 tsp of lemonaide mix. My family loves this tea.

My kids love this.. I won't tell them what the secret recipe is!
I made this recipe using only 3/4 cup of sugar and about 3/4 teaspoon of lemonade kool aid. It came out so close to the original, I make it all the time now!! Even my mother-in-law liked it..WOW!!
We love both the can/dry mixed Lipton so had to give this a try at least once..instantly hooked the family..used 1/2 the sugar version...had to make a mad dash out for some more Koolaid as it's not a normal thing I keep..thanks so much for saving us a bundle!

WE'RE HOOKED! I also reduce the sugar a bit, and use the Lipton decaffinated tea bags. YUMMY! What a money saver for our family. We make at least 4 quarts a week. (Hint) Stick with the Kool-Aid brand Lemonade concentrate...I tried a knockoff and it was terrible. Happy Brewing!

I LOVE this recipe. I cut the sugar about half and I love it even more!! It's simple to make, cheap, and incredibly delicious.
