Our Halloween jungle juice recipe may not be spooky, but it makes a fantastic themed punch for you to enjoy with friends.
This is a sequel to our jungle juice saga using fresh fruits and juice. Before we start, here are some interesting facts about today’s drink:
Is Halloween Jungle Juice Healthy?
Although our Halloween jungle juice recipe does contain fresh fruits and juice, it also has alcoholic spirits in it. For this reason, we can’t label the drink “healthy”.
We can say, however, that it is a healthier take than most other recipes out there, as we design every alcoholic beverage recipe according to USDA’s dietary guidelines.
This Halloween jungle juice contains 1 fl oz of 80 proof alcohol per serving. This amount of alcohol is lower than what USDA recommends — 1.5 fl oz for women and 3 fl oz for men.
In addition, we also paid close attention to the amount of sugar in each serving to ensure it doesn’t exceed your daily limit. In the end, this recipe contains only 1 tablespoon of sugar per four servings.
What’s in a Halloween Jungle Juice Recipe?
1. What Exactly Is a Jungle Juice?
Jungle juice is typically a cocktail mixed with an assortment of alcoholic spirits and fresh fruits. Variations of the drinks depend on the imagination of the maker, so have fun with it!
That being said, we don’t encourage you to go overboard with the drink. Jungle juice is best to drink in moderation, as it often contains hard liquor such as gin, vodka, tequila, etc.
Jungle juice is often made in large batches and served in a sizable tub for a crowd at parties. However, today we’re going to turn it into a family-sized drink, enough for a small gathering at home.
2. Ingredients to Our Halloween Jungle Juice Recipe
