Tart & tasty, pickles are already a refreshing Summer treat. But why not make them fun & fluorescent, too? All you need is one-gallon jar of pickles, a packet of unsweetened Kool-Aid and a pound of sugar. Drain the pickle juice into mixing bowl, add other ingredients, wait until it’s dissolved then pour the liquid back in the jar with your dill. Refrigerate for a week and Voilà!
