Drink of the Day: Jungle Juice Cocktail

January 27, 2015 | By | 2 Comments

Here is a drink recipe that seems to be different everywhere you go.  Is this the original Jungle Juice Cocktail Recipe?  I am not sure.  All I know is that this is my favorite one to date and I would like to share it with you today.  There are many renditions of drinks also called Jungle Juice.  With this version, there is an abundance of fruit juices to go along with the liquor, so you will have a hard time even tasting the booze.  This is perfect for those wanting to mask the liquor completely.

This may be one of those cocktails you may want to wait the weekend to try out for yourself.  In fact, this is a perfect cocktail that you can share during your Super Bowl party.  If you have ever had punch-type cocktails, you will be familiar with this variety of beverage.  Just remember to take your time to enjoy the many flavors you will get out of this one drink or you may not make halftime.  This is more potent than it tastes, so drink responsibly.

 

Enjoy your day and stay warm.  Here’s a tropical beverage that will kick the wintertime blues to the curb.  Cheers!
