A jungle juice cocktail is all about fun, and there are no rules. A concoction of flavored liqueurs, fruit juices, and hard liquor, the best jungle juice is most definitely stiff, but fruity. It’s practically a staple at big, raging parties. This 4-gallon recipe is tropical and blue.

Fruits

  • 10 apples, cubed
  • 10 oranges, sliced
  • 1 large watermelon, seeded and chopped

Liqueurs and Liquor

  • 1 1/2 gallons vodka
  • 1/2 gallon white rum
  • 1 quart tequila
  • 1 quart triple sec
  • 1 quart peach schnapps

Fruit Juices

  • 1/2 gallon tropical juice (any mixed fruit drink)
  • 1/2 gallon Hawaiian Punch
  • 1/2 gallon Sprite

Coloring

  • 1 bottle blue curaçao

Add the fruits to a 5-gallon cooler followed by the liquors and liqueurs, except for the blue curaçao. Let the fruits absorb the alcohol for 4 hours.

Add the fruit juices. Stir the jungle juice while slowly pouring in the blue curaçao until you get your desired shade of blue.

Tips

  • Adding ice to the mix eventually waters down the jungle juice. Instead, keep ice nearby to add to individual serving glasses.
  • Use a cooler with a lid and spout to reduce the chances of drink spiking.
  • Plan ahead and let the jungle juice sit overnight before serving.
