A quick and easy combination of flavors and juices to form the one and only Ecto Cooler
  • 2 cups of Orange/Tangerine Juice (Ocean Spray Carries it: )
  • 1 Packet of Orange Flavor-Aid or Kool-Aid
  • 1 packet Tangerine Flavor-Aid or Kool-Aid
  • Juice of one fresh lemon or a tablespoon of your favorite Lemonade mix
  • 2 cups of sugar
  • 2 cups of water
  • Blue and Green Food Coloring
  • Water to fill the Jug
  1. The first thing I did was make a simple syrup...just add 2 cups of water with 2 cups of sugar...bring to a boil...remove from the heat and allow to cool.
  2. Once the syrup is cool add all the ingredients into a Gallon Container
  3. The simple syrup makes it easy to combine the sugar... you can add the sugar as is if you would like
  4. Stir well
  5. Now add water to fill up the rest of the gallon
  6. Add your green food coloring till you get close to a greenish color ...it won't get totally green until you add a few drops of blue...trust me on this...you have to use the blue...start with 2 drops...stir...they add drop by drop to achieve the color you are looking for. The blue works magic!
