GTL. Fist-pumping. The Smush Room.
If you're familiar with these things, then it's likely you're a fan of the Guidos and Guidettes that make up the Jersey Shore gang. Snooki, The Situation and the rest of the Shore kids have amped up our Jerzdays for the better part of three years now, whether you like it or not.
Their greatest contribution (besides the importance of tanning)? The delicious drink Ron Ron Juice.
"Ron Ron Juice, it messes you up," Snooki told David Letterman in 2010. "It's vodka, watermelon, blueberry, cherries and maybe some [Jägermeister]. You have to [get drunk before you go out]. You can't go to a club sober."
That's right – roommate Ronnie Ortiz-Magro started making this delicious concoction during the second season of "Jersey Shore" and it's gained in popularity every season since.
"We start drinking Ron Ron Juice around 8 o'clock," Snooki added. You don't have to start that early, but the fruity combo does make going out that much more fun.
Ron Ron Juice Recipe
- 8 cups – Seedless watermelon, cubed. Watermelon juice will also work if the fruit is not in-season.
- 12 ounces – Cranberry Juice
- 1.5 cups – Blueberries
- 1 jar – Marichino Cherries
- 1.5 cups – Vodka
- Jägermeister (optional)
Combine all ingredients in a blender and whip until smooth. Pour into red solo cups and get ready for your night at Karma (or other club of choice.)
Other Jersey Shore-Inspired Cocktails
Is Ron Ron Juice too fruity for your tastes? There are always other options when it comes to pre-club drinking. For example, the Long Island Iced Tea is great for those girls who like to drink a whole bunch of different alcohols at once (like Snooks and JWoww.)
Self-proclaimed "Blast in a Glass" Deena Nicole would appreciate the Jersey Turnpike – a drink that gets you dancing (with or without underwear) and helps you hook up with the gorilla juicehead of your choice.
Jersey Turnpike Recipe
The Jersey Turnpike is actually a really simple drink to make – it's even simple if you're already one or two drinks in at the club.
- 1 pint – Light beer
- 1 shot glass – Rumpleminz
Drop the shot in the pint glass of beer, slam it down and get ready to dance your Rumpleminz off.
Of course, there's always the time-tested Sex on the Beach cocktail. Pauly D and Vinny can attest that it works quite well with the ladies.
