How To Make Jungle Juice

By Edited Apr 30, 2016 0 0

What Is Jungle Juice?

The Basics

Jungle Juice is a really tasty party drink commonly found at frat houses and Halloween parties. With mixed drinks, you can commonly be forced to make a decision- do I use more alcohol to make it strong, or do I use more mixer so it will taste good? Jungle Juice is one of the strongest drinks you'll find but it tastes like there is no alcohol at all. 

If you're holding a party, there is no better way to provide for your guests than Jungle Juice. It is equally enjoyed by the manliest men and the sweetest of women. You can make large amounts for relatively low cost. You can store it, transport it, and best of all afford it. Using different combinations of drinks found at your local grocery store you can make all different kinds of Jungle Juices in under thirty minutes.

The Container

So what kind of container do you need for Jungle Juice? When making this decision, the two factors you want to consider are size and servings. In other words, how many people are going to be at your party and how to do you want to serve them their Jungle Juice?

If you are serving ten people or less, you can use a large punchbowl to serve your guests. If this is the case, you probably want to use a large jug or bucket to mix and store your beverage.

If you are serving more than ten people, you can use things like a 5 gallon bucket or ice chest. My personal favorite is using the big Gatorade coolers that football teams use. It has a removable top to easily pour in and mix your ingredients, and it has a push and dispense outlet at the bottom for easy serving.I cannot stress enough how much easier it is to use a container with a push to dispense option instead of using a ladle to serve guests. 

Fruity Jungle Juice Recipe

This recipe has a great fruity taste. It's my personal favorite.

  • Mixer
  1. 1 gallon of Orange Juice
  2. 1 gallon of Sprite(about 4 Liters)
  3. 1/2 gallon of Cranberry Juice
  4. 1 Gallon of Hawaiian Punch
  5. 2 packages of Jolly Ranchers(Optional)
  • Alcohol
  1. 3-4 liters of Vodka
  2. 1.75 liters Malibu Rum(Optional)

 

Mix all of your ingredients together in your container. Be sure to add the alcohol first and continually stir as you add each ingredient. Once everything is nice and mixed together, put it in the fridge or on ice to get nice and cool. Then it is ready to serve.

Tips and Tricks

It's a lot better if you use orange juice with no pulp. Most guests don't want to see little things floating in a drink made by a friend.

Jolly Ranchers are my favorite optional ingredient. I like to buy two big packages. One I crush into tiny pieces and add to my mixture. The other package I will put out with the Jungle Juice for guests to drop one in their drink. Highly recommended.

For the Malibu Rum, try to pick a fruity flavor like Mango. It really adds to the fruity kick in the drink.

If you really want to go all out, try adding fruit to this recipe. You can add oranges, apples, or limes into your container once everything is mixed. Let them soak for at least three hours, the longer the better. The fruit juices will mix into your drink, and the fruits will soak up alcohol. You can serve alcoholic fruit slices along with your Jungle Juice!

Tips and Tricks

If you can get it, Everclear is a great addition to this drink in place of the Malibu.

When choosing fruit punches, don't over think it. Just pick something you think would mix well with the vodka.

If you want you can substitute the fruit punch for two liters of prepared Kool-Aid.

The Ultimate Jungle Juice Recipe

If you really want to go all out, then I recommend the Ultimate Jungle Juice Recipe. This recipe is the most exotic recipe, living up to the Jungle Juice name. The ingredients are as follows:

  1. 8-10 Liters of Sprite
  2. 1 Liter of Sunny Delight or other orange juice
  3. 5 liters of Hawaiian Punch

  • Alcohol
  1. (3)1.75 Liter bottles of vodka
  2. 1 bottle Bacardi 151 Rum
  3. 1 bottle Apple Schnapps
  4. 1 bottle Peach Schnapps
  5. 1 bottle Sour Apple Schnapps

Mix all of your ingredients together in your container. Be sure to add the alcohol first and continually stir as you add each ingredient. Once everything is nice and mixed together, put it in the fridge or on ice to get nice and cool. Then it is ready to serve.

Tips and Tricks


For the Jolly Ranchers I like to buy two big packages. One I crush into tiny pieces and add to my mixture. The other package I will put out with the Jungle Juice for guests to drop one in their drink. Highly recommended.

If you don't want all the schnapps, you can substitute with Everclear or another drink of your choice.

Sprite is the key factor in the mixers. Feel free to change the other ingredients for ones you prefer, but the Sprite is the most effective at offsetting the mass amounts of alcohol in this recipe.
