The phrase “drinking from the Kool Aid” is a strange one. Originating from a cult mass suicide, it’s also used to describe belief in perspective. I still can’t decide whether I’m a fan of the term or not, but that’s neither here nor there.
Either way, if I was to drink from the Kool Aid and share with you, here are ten bottles of Kool Aid that would fill your creative juice needs anytime. I hope you enjoy.
