The Hippie Juice that’s plastered all over social media lately is both a fun and fruity cocktail that’s an amazing sweet summer treat. This specialty drink is a citrus concoction for any social event. Hippie Juice cocktails are combined from watermelon vodka, triple sec, coconut rum, pink lemonade, lemon slices, strawberry halves, and raspberries. This fruity cocktail also looks amazing when served in a Hipster style mason jar!
– Watermelon Vodka (choose your favorite)
– Triple Sec
– Malibu Coconut Rum
– Pink Lemonade (liquid or mix)
– A Lemon
– Handful of Strawberries
– Handful of Raspberries
To conjure up your own Hippie Juice, all you’ll need to do is combine 1.5 parts watermelon vodka, 1 part Triple Sec, 1 part coconut rum, and the pink lemonade and fruits to your liking. Feel free to add your own tiki themed touches when serving at a summer night in like paper umbrellas and flower petals.
When drinking Hippie Juice around children, you can offer them some cups of pink lemonade with strawberries to keep them from consuming alcohol out of curiosity. Always keep children supervised around alcohol.
Users on Tumblr are blowing the internet up over this little cocktail. Tumblr user, Kelly expressed her thoughts and feelings when she posted on her blogging stating:
“This cocktail is fruity and sweet and will knock your socks off if you aren’t careful! With all the flavors combined in there you can barely taste the alcohol so make sure you are with friends you trust!”
Looking for another way to spice up your new Hippie Juice cocktail? Try adding some new glass salts or spices into your drink. Spices, you ask? Yes, ma’am! A very slight touch of cinnamon, vanilla, lime or mint can help change-up the flavor of the drink entirely. If lemonade is too common for you, change it up with some limeade or maybe orangeade to help switch up the occasion. If you feel extra daring in your bartender extraordinaire mindset, you can always change-up the fruits that you add to the drink; experience = mind-blowing.
If you haven’t heard about this mystifying drink until now, you’ve totally been missing out haven’t you? This amazing summer drink isn’t only for Hippies and Hipsters; anyone who enjoys sipping on some pink lemonade should be falling in love with this one. Some recipes of the cocktail include slushed ice or cold water to keep it cool and light, but anyone is welcome to make the drink how he/she pleases. Always remember to stay safe when drinking alcohol and stay cool and hip this summer.
