A fun experiment that shows how secondary colors are created from primary colors.
Magic Potion Drinks • 1 pack of red unsweetened drink mix (kool-aid) • 1 pack of yellow unsweetened drink mix (kool-aid) • 1 pack of blue unsweetened drink mix (kool-aid) • Lemon-lime flavored carbonated soda
NOTES: Instead of kool-aid, red, yellow and blue drinks such as gatoraid, lemonaid, cranberry juice will also work, but the colors may not be as vibrant .
Can you see the difference?
Directions for Magic Potion Drinks 1. Mix the kool-aid according to directions (adding sugar is optional since the carbonated soda may be sweet enough.) 2. Pour each color/flavor into a different ice cube tray and freeze solid. 3. To serve, pour the soda into clear glasses. Put 1-2 flavored ice cubes into each glass.
NOTES: If the soda is too cold, the ice will not have a chance to melt and change the drinks color.
4. As the ice cubes dissolve, the drink will magically change color and flavor.
