Get Groovy With Hippie Juice: Cocktail Recipes for Spring

Cocktail Recipes

One of the Mama Kat prompts this week involves cocktail recipes:

Refreshments anyone? Prepare a drink for us and share the recipe!

Since I aim to please (and because I had all the ingredients since I made this recipe for a party in April), I bring you: Hippie Juice!

I discovered Hippie Juice on Pinterest and read about different variations on this blog. It’s perfect for a spring get-together or a beach outing. Here’s what you’ll need:

  • A clean “Simply” brand juice container
  • Country Time Pink Lemonade powder mix
  • 1 cup Smirnoff Watermelon Vodka
  • 1/3 cup Triple Sec
  • 1/3 cup Malibu Coconut Rum
  • 4 strawberries

Measure out enough lemonade powder mix for two quarts (the lid of the container has a line for two quarts). Add the vodka, the triple sec, and the coconut rum. Mix it all together and put it in the Simply container. Add cold water to the neck of the Simply container.

Rinse the strawberries and cut straight across with a knife to remove the stem. Then place the strawberries upside down on the cutting board and slice evenly into 4 pieces using two motions forming a cross.

Drop the strawberries into the drink mixture, add water to the top, cap and shake gently to mix. Refrigerate.

Enjoy!

  2. You want to add 4 cups of water to the bottle.

    A used/empty Tropicana bottle works just as well as a Simply Orange bottle.

    You can use a tube of Crystal Light if you are wanting to use a sugar-free drink mix instead. This lowers the amount of sugar in the drink and makes it easier to use instead of measuring the sugared drink mix in the drink mix container lid.

    I like to make this ahead of time and store it in the fridge until I’m ready to drink it. I skip the strawberries because they tend to get slimy after a while. The strawberries seem to be more of a garnish to me anyways.

    The only issue that I have with storing it in the fridge is that the aspartame part of the Crystal Light tends to settle in the bottle causing a white cloudy look to the bottom of the bottle. I just shake the bottle up again to mix the aspartame back into the drink.
