Editor’s Note: Let’s face it. When you’re hosting a big party, you may not want to spend time mixing a drink for each guest. What’s a busy host or hostess to do? Serve this Jungle Juice recipe, of course! This alcoholic drink recipe is super easy to make (it only has four steps!) and can be mixed up in no time. All you need to do is serve the Jungle Juice in an elegant punch bowl that is complete with pretty slices of fresh fruit on top, and you’re ready for the party. Jungle Juice can be served year-round, but it is especially refreshing in summer. If you’ve always wanted to learn how to make Jungle Juice, then this recipe makes it easy to put it all together.
Parties are a great time to try new drink recipes. When my friend Drew turned twenty-one, I wanted to throw him a surprise party. He insisted that he didn’t want anything special and that it wasn’t that important to him. I brainstormed with one of Drew’s close friends-we decided to have it at Billy’s house on a weekday that wasn’t Drew’s actual birthday so Drew wouldn’t suspect anything.
That night about ten friends came over and started to prepare. About nine p.m., Billy called Drew and invited him to come over and hang out. Nearly an hour later, Drew arrived at Billy’s darkened living room. We turned on the lights and everyone jumped up, shouting, “Happy birthday!”
For the cake decoration, I chose an album cover from one of Drew’s favorite hip-hop groups, Souls of Mischief. He was overjoyed. For drinks, we made Jungle Juice, a mixture of assorted juices and vodka. Before the party, we poured the vodka in the punchbowl and then filled the empty vodka bottles with water and froze them. When the party started, we put the entire frozen bottles of water into the punchbowl, using them as large ice cubes. The punchbowl looked colorful and creative.
