Can You Get Drunk Off Jungle Juice

And if your tolerance levels are low then this could really hurt! Eat some food first so that it doesn’t have an effect on YOU.

Make sure you have plenty on hand because even though it may seem like an easy sipper – alcohol can sneak up on us fast when drinking fruity cocktails like these ones.

Is Harry Buffalo the Same Jungle Juice

Jungle juice has many names and all have common ingredients. It’s also known as Harry Buffalo, Hunch Punch, and Trashcan punch, which all share the same jungle juice concepts.

Why Is It Called Jungle Juice

Jungle juice is a type of alcohol that’s been around since World War II when Americans and Australians started drinking this fun drink together for a great time.

The name comes from the town where these soldiers would trade recipes with each other, during their tours in the mid-1940s.

The drinks were invented as a way to get pretty tipsy quickly and without spending too much money.

You may know it from your college parties; these popularized cocktail mixers like juice or other ingredients they had on hand except the kitchen sink, with the cheapest available booze.

Best Halloween Jungle Juice Recipe

Halloween is the perfect time to break out the Jungle Juice. This potent punch is usually made with a mix of hard alcohol and sugary mixers, made in large batches, and it’s not for the faint of heart.

But if you’re looking for a big party drink that packs a punch, Jungle Juice is the way to go.

What Juice Goes In Jungle Juice Variations

There are no strict rules when it comes to making Jungle Juice, so feel free to experiment with different types of liquor and mixers.

And if you really want to give your guests a scare, try adding some spooky decorations to your punch bowl.

Just be sure to have plenty of snacks on hand, as Jungle Juice can quickly lead to a gnarly hangover.

How to Get a Smoky Effect with Dry Ice

Rather than placing the dry ice directly inside the liquid, you can achieve a smoky effect by placing a large punch bowl inside of a larger bowl and placing small pieces of dry ice in between the layers.

The smaller pieces will be easier to fit in between. I like to crush the dry ice cubes with a rolling pin. (A word of caution. Do not use bare hands with dry ice! Always wear gloves.)

Light Alcohol and Non Alcoholic Alternative

For a more moderate amount of alcohol, mix 1 part alcohol with 3 parts juice. And for a non-alcoholic version, simply omit the alcohol.

Halloween is the one time of year when you can really let your creativity shine through in your food and drink choices.

While some prefer classic Halloween staples like candy corn and pumpkin pie, others like to get a little more inventive with their Halloween fare.

The sky’s the limit for the combination of juices you can use, so have fun experimenting!

Halloween wouldn’t be complete without a delicious punch, so make sure to try this jungle juice recipe at your next Halloween party.
