Fish Bowl Drink Ingredients
- Pineapple Rum: Pineapple rum is exactly like it sounds. It is a traditional rum that is flavored with pineapple. It is a little, sweet and not as harsh as a traditional rum. I used Barcardi in this recipe.
- Blue Curacao: Blue Curacao is a popular liqueur that is blue in color and citrusy in flavor. The flavor of this liqueur comes from Laraha citrus fruit and the blue color comes from food dye. It has a fruity flavor and is often compared to Triple Sec.
- Pineapple Peach Limeade: I used the brand Calypso found at Walmart. If you can’t find this regular limeade may be used instead.
- Pineapple Juice: Look for this in the juice aisle near the other bottled beverages.
- Sprite: Any lemon lime soda can be used here such as Sierra Mist or 7 Up.
How To Make A Fish Bowl Drink
- In a cocktail shaker or mason jar, combine juices and liquors.
- Fill bowl with ice and garnishes.
- Top off with Sprite. Enjoy responsibly!
