More About This Recipe

  • What’s more fun than a giant, yummy, candy-filled drink with a whole lotta straws? This big-batch cocktail recipe is basically a modified Blue Hawaiian, and it's easy to adapt to your tastes by swapping out the coconut rum, or the vodka, or using a fruit-flavored vodka. If you want to make a non-alcoholic version to serve the kids, just substitute more soda for the alcohol. No need to visit a pet store: You can find fishbowls in the floral supply section of craft stores. The Nerds™ candy make adorable faux “gravel,” but their colorful coatings will melt quickly. This could make your Fishbowl Punch appear a little murky, so these are best served immediately.
