What is the best jungle juice recipe? A good recipe includes a mix of vodka, rum, and fruit juices. The fruit juices are key because they will help mask the taste of the liquor. Very simple!

What is Jungle Juice?

It’s a great punch to serve for a special occasion, party, or event because you can easily make 2 gallons or even 5 gallons of punch for a group, and most people will love the punch!

I have always had the juice at parties or gatherings. The great thing about it is, you can’t taste the alcohol. This can be dangerous, if you consume too much, so always drink responsibly.

The punch is a combination of fruit juices, vodka, rum, and fresh fruit.

Why is it Called Jungle Juice?

The name is linked to the South West Pacific and World War II. American soldiers used available materials in the jungle for fermentation and flavoring for their concoctions. You can read more about Why It Is Called Jungle Juice here.

How Much Alcohol is in Jungle Juice

Alcohol accounts for 20% of the punch.

How to Make the Drink on a Budget (Cheap)

If you are looking for a cheap way to make the punch, stick to low-cost vodka and rum. Jungle juice is great for college parties and events, so if you need to save on cash stick to something like Smirnoff or Tito’s Vodka.

I love Tito’s because it’s affordable and is quality vodka. Bacardi rum is also a great budget-friendly rum option. If Everclear is your thing you can use that, too.

How to Make Jungle Juice Not Too Strong

If you are looking for a punch that isn’t strong you can always add more juice. You can also use less alcohol.

How Long Do You Let Jungle Juice Sit

I prefer to make a punch this size the night before, especially if you want the fruit to soak in the alcohol. Storing it in the fridge overnight will allow that to happen.

One of the best parts of serving punch with fresh fruit is eating the liquor-soaked fruit from the punch. They can serve as mini-shots!

How to Save Remaining Jungle Juice

I use glass mason jars. You can freeze it, too!

Looks really good! Was wondering how much of the alcohol we pour into the container? In the video it shows she only pours about 2 cups of Rum and then the entire Vodka bottle?
