Is it me or does spring and summer mean more fruit drinks are consumed in your house? Something about the heat and juice drinks go hand in hand.



So the other day when I was strolling wrangling a toddler in the fruit juice aisle at Walmart, I spotted the new ready to drink 96oz Kool-Aid bottles and knew that... 1) I had the perfect recipe stored away in my noggin for these and 2) I needed to keep a couple of these on hand for those hot summer days. Hello convenience! I may have bought one of each flavor... tropical punch, watermelon and grape.
So about that recipe: After a long cold winter, a fruit juice flavored cookie is just what I need. Although, I could make a case for a fruit juice cookie pretty much anytime of the year. And what is better than just a cookie? A frosted cookie! And what is better than a frosted cookie? Well not much. Can you tell I am hungry while writing this?
The recipe makes a small batch of about 24 cookies (depending on your cookie cutter size).  But don't expect the batch to be around long.  With the perfect ratio of fruit juice flavor and cookie to lemonade frosting, they will be gobbled up in no time... leaving you yearning for another taste of summer.
