Jungle Juice! What a unique name for a juice! Wait, let me correct you; it is not a juice but a cocktail. Jungle juice is a cocktail made with rum, vodka, and a dash of fresh fruits. Fruit juice is added to suppress the flavor of liquor and give it a more sweet taste and you will taste less of alcohol. But be responsible while drinking it as you can consume it too much because of the less flavor of alcohol in it.
It is said that American soldiers invented jungle juice during World War II as they used a combination of the commonly available ingredients in the forest for the process of fermentation, distillation and flavoring.
Jungle juice is the best party drink as it is easy to make in huge quantities and can be made budget-friendly by using the alcohol of the price range that suits you the most. This drink also contains fresh fruits that get infused by the taste of liquor and gives a great punch to them. But there are many other drink recipes that we’ve covered in our blog.
