Last Summer, I started a new series on my blog called "Lazy Hazy Crazy Days of Summer" where my intention was to post summer themed things. Unfortunately, working in baseball makes my summer's very hectic and I only was able to make a couple posts. Here is my second attempt at doing this. My first post for the Summer of 2013 will be "Welcome to the Fishbowl." A play on Kenny Chesney's album, my friend and I made these delicious Fishbowl drinks while tailgating at the Kenny Chesney concert on Memorial Day weekend. The original recipe I found called for Malibu Rum but we of course opted for Kenny's own Blue Chair Bay Coconut Rum.
THE BEST FISH BOWL Ingredients:
½ cup Nerds candy
½ gallon goldfish bowl
5 oz. vodka
5 oz. Blue Chair Bay Coconut Rum
3 oz. blue Curacao
6 oz. sweet-and-sour mix
16 oz. pineapple juice
16 oz. Sprite
3 slices each: lemon, lime, orange 4 Swedish gummy fish
Step 1: Sprinkle Nerds on bottom of bowl as “gravel.”
Step 2: Fill bowl with ice.
Step 3: Add remaining ingredients. Serve with 18-inch party straws.
This bowl made a ridiculously huge and delicious drink! We each tried to drink our own however I think we only finished half of one in the multiple hours of tailgating. This fishbowl definitely packs enough punch for 2-3 people to share comfortably and is great for a summer tailgate, pool party, a day at the beach or whatever summer activity you prefer!
Stay tuned for more Lazy Crazy Hazy Days of Summer posts...
