As college girls, we may have encountered a fish bowl or two… and hopefully remembered the tale. But regardless, fish bowls make the perfect summer drink because they’re refreshingly sweet and can be shared with friends on a hot summer night. And the great thing about fish bowls you make yourself? The amount of alcohol you put in is completely up to you. We may have learned a thing or two from that past experience.
What you need
- 5 ounces of vodka
- 5 ounces of Malibu rum
- 3 ounces of blue Curacao
- 6 ounces of sweet-and-sour mix
- A handful of gummy Swedish fish
- 1/2 cup of Nerds candy
- 3 slices of lime
- 3 slices of lemon
- 3 slices of orange
- 16 ounces of Sprite
- 16 ounces of pineapple juice
- First, sprinkle the Nerds candy at the bottom of the bowl. This makes the “gravel” for your fish! Note: when you insert the straws, make sure to not press them into the gravel
- Fill the bowl with ice to about one inch or two below the rim, adding in the Swedish fish as you go
- Add all of the above ingredients, stick in several 18-inch straws
Note that the amount of alcohol is completely adjustable, simply play with the amounts. If you decide to forgo a few ounces of alcohol, simply add in more Sprite.
