12 Top Everclear Recipes
Everclear is by far one of the strongest liquors out there with a high proof of 190 percent! It's extremely potent and you can actually cook with it (shake and bake) Do not drink this neat or on ice. It's mainly used as a base or a floater for incredible recipes. If you are having a huge party, breakout the Everclear and get creative with some great recipes. Please know it will put a HOLE in your ASS!! YES! It's potent! Let's get into some craziness!
You ever go to a fraternity party or a college party and wonder why the punch tastes a bit strong? Well, Everclear is the absolute answer to your question. You can pretty much make Jungle Juice how you want with using Everclear as the base liquor without any other liquors and it's still potent. Red is a color normally associated with Jungle Juice because of the additive of Hawaiian Fruit Punch when mixing. With a liquor as strong as Everclear, you want to use a lot of mixers such as actual fruits, fruit juices, and sodas for added carbonation and freshness to hide the powerful alcoholic burn. However, there is a legitimate recipe for Jungle Juice, which goes as follows:
A full handle of Everclear Grain Alcohol
Vodka (3 bottles recommended)
Peach Schnapps (Peachtree)
A 151 overproof rum (Bacardi or Gosling)
99 Apples (1 Bottle)
10 bottles of Sprite
Triple sec (1 Liter bottle)
Gin (1.75 of Seagrams, New Amsterdam)
Sour Apple Pucker (1 Liter)
Boone's Farm Strawberry wine (good sweetener)
Hawaiian Fruit Punch (a few gallons adds the color)
Orange Juice Concentrate (optional; not required)
Fruits : oranges, pineapples, apples, etc
Of course, you can cut the cost of your recipe by getting store brand mixers. It's recommended to put the ice in first then your alcohol and mixers overnight to let all of the fruits soak in the liquor. When the Jungle Juice runs out, you'll have strong shots leftover from the liquor soaked into the fruits. Also, use the soda right before or during your actual event. This way you'll Jungle Juice will stay properly carbonated throughout the event. This is simply a classic recipe for any party and everyone knows exactly what it is due to the color of the punch!
Jungle Juice is not the only recipe for your Everclear because there are tons of other ones out there if you like to keep things simple:
