So if you’re hosting game night or Friday night cocktails, try one of these fun fish bowl drink recipes. You won’t regret it!
10 Easy Fish Bowl Cocktails To Try This Weekend
1. Fish Bowl Cocktail
This fish bowl cocktail is the ultimate in oversized drinks.
Blue Curacao ensures the cocktail looks like water. And you’ll even add Swedish Fish into the bowl!
The drink itself has a bright, slightly tart taste, and the lemon-lime soda and pineapple juice are a phenomenal combination.
They make the drink fizzy, tropical, and tremendously tasty. It’s like a blue, boozy punch that’s big enough for all your party guests to share.
Feel free to serve this in a pitcher for easy pouring.
2. Fish Bowl Drink (with Coconut Rum)
Do you prefer the blue-green waters of the Maldives? If so, this fish bowl drink may be more aesthetically pleasing to you.
Its lovely, light aqua color is beautiful and very realistic.
Topping it with club soda gives it lots of exciting bubbles, too. Add in the Swedish Fish, ice, and fruit, and it’s genuinely stunning.
It’s also a potent drink made with four different kinds of alcohol, plus pineapple juice and Blue Curacao. So, it’s sweet, tangy, and just plain fun.
Just be sure to keep it away from the kids! When they see those little fish, they’ll want some too.
3. Strawberry Lemonade Fish Bowl Drink Cocktail
This red, fruit-filled drink doesn’t look like water in a fishbowl. However, it’s still a spectacularly cool drink that’ll impress everyone who sees it.
It’s bright, sweet, and just a tiny bit tart. Basically, it’s a boozy strawberry lemonade, and I’m 100% here for it.
Even without the bottle of Seagrams sticking in the top, it’s a fantastic cocktail. It tastes incredible, looks lovely, and isn’t too sweet or strong.
That extra Seagrams bottle certainly jazzes up its overall look, though. It has “Let’s Get This Party Started!” written all over it.
4. Jamaican Me Happy Mojito Fish Bowl
Like the idea of a bottle of Seagrams in your cocktail? Here’s another exciting recipe utilizing that same trick.
Only this one isn’t nearly as strawberry-heavy.
It does feature the distinctive taste of strawberries. However, it’s also sweet, minty, and a little tropical.
It’s like a daiquiri, piña colada, and mojito all rolled into one.
The taste is delicious and unique but a little hard to describe. Still, you’ll love it if you want something light, bright, and invigorating.
5. Kid-Friendly Fish Bowl Punch
Besides being big, these fish bowl recipes also have some other things in common.
They’re colorful, fun, and look out-of-this-world yummy.
So, it’s no wonder that every kid who sees them wants to try them. In most cases, though, they can’t.
However, this kid-friendly mocktail is the exception.
It features the same gorgeous blue color and Swedish Fish. And the Nerds at the bottom add a nice ‘aquarium rocks’ touch.
Unlike the cocktails above, this one is 100% alcohol-free. Honestly, it’s just a big bowl of Sprite (or another clear soda) with blue food coloring.
Of course, you could jazz it up with fruit juices or blue Hawaiian Punch. Either way, it’s an excellent option for birthday parties and other kid’s events.
6. Ocean Water Punch
This sweet, coconutty drink is another alcohol-free option the whole family can enjoy.
It combines raspberry and coconut syrups for a sweet and tangy taste.
It’s refreshing, crisp, and delightfully bubbly. And its brilliant blue color is almost too blue to look like actual ocean water.
Still, that’s okay because it tastes far better than ocean water.
7. Crown Royal Peach Whiskey Fish Bowl Drink
This scrumptious, peachy drink is a must-make this summer. Especially if you’re in the mood for something strong and sweet.
It’s a southern cocktail at its finest, featuring a belly-warming peach whiskey base and brighter notes of lemonade.
Pour it into a fish bowl, add lots of peach rings, and it’s ready to go.
It’s an easy-to-make, two-ingredient drink (plus ice and garnishes), but it tastes absolutely divine.
Simplicity has never tasted this good.
8. Fizzy Fish Bowl Cocktails
Are you the kind of person who can never get enough fruit? If so, these fizzy fish bowl cocktails are perfect for you.
They’re rum-based tropical drinks that taste like ambrosia on your tongue.
A bit like sangria, they’re also overflowing with fruit! I’m talking blueberries, raspberries, pineapple, lemon, lime, and more!
And the longer you let them soak, the boozier each piece will be. Plus, the fruit juices and syrup completely mask the alcohol flavor.
You’ll love this cocktail if you like to drink without tasting alcohol.
9. Bay of Islands Fish Bowl
This simple drink combines vodka and sparkling wine with pineapple and cranberry juices.
That’s it; that’s all you’ll need (besides the garnishes, of course).
Despite its large size, it takes mere moments to prepare. That said, you’ll want to make it in advance to give the flavors time to mingle and chill.
A couple of hours should suffice.
Once it’s ready, top it up with sparkling wine, add ice and garnishes, and serve. It doesn’t get much simpler than that.
10. Cotton Candy Fish Bowl
This colorful, slushy drink looks a bit like cotton candy. It also has a sweet, fruity taste that features real cotton candy!
Keep in mind: this one is relatively strong. While there’s cotton candy and ice in the base, everything else has alcohol in it.
You’ll mix triple sec, raspberry vodka, and strawberry vodka. It’s a potent – but tasty – combination.
