  Bug Juice
Preparation Method: Mix in water
Serves: Refer to package for serving size.
Non-Food Items Needed: Large Pitcher or larger jug
large serving spoon
Food Items Needed: One package of powdered, non-sweetened drink mix per girl. (Kool-aid) Leader can bring the sugar and refer to your packages for quantity needed.
At Home Prep: None
In Camp Prep/
Cooking Instructions:
Combine packages of drink mix and sugar in large pitcher or several gallon jug. Size of group will determine container size. You should get around 4 servings for each quart or liter.
Serving Suggestions: The colder the better.
Comments: Combinations of 2-3 flavors give that gross glorious "by product of bugs" look to the finished concoction. We sometimes used sticks to stir with if we were out on a trail somewhere, so tiny pieces of bark floating around looked like bugs, too.

Although I have used this recipe, I was reminded of it by an article in our Oakland Press. Published in the fall of 1996, Mary Bauer of Clarkston, Michigan wrote in to recommend this recipe, which is from an old Junior Girl Scout Handbook.
