The holidays are upon us and so are the twenty pounds it brings along with it via all the tasty treats we prepare and stuff our pie holes in to celebrate. So why not make it count with a nostalgic treat that I concocted myself to bring a little extra flair to the holiday spread table! It’s easy, tasty, and sure to be a hit at your Thanksgiving or Christmas get-together; and I’m sharing it with you guys today! The ever-so-wonderful Sparkling Ecto-Cooler Drink Recipe!
Grant it, there are a TON of copycat Ecto Cooler recipes out there. However, none are quite like this and I tweaked it with my own flair to give it a little extra punch especially if you, like myself, like a bit of fizzy in your beverage. So here’s what you’re gonna need to make this nostalgic nectar of the Gods:
- 1 1/2 CUPS OF ORANGE JUICE (PULP FREE)
- ONE BOTTLE OF IZZE CLEMINTINE SPARKLING JUICE
- 1 TBSP COUNTRY TIME LEMONADE
- 2 TBSP’S TANG
- 1 TBSP SUGAR
- WATER TO TASTE
- GREEN FOOD COLORING
After mixing both juices, sugar, lemonade, and Tang mix, grab a water bottle and slowly pour to dilute it some to your own desired taste. Drop in a few splashes of green food coloring and presto- a holiday drink fit for the most gluttonous of ghosts! Bonus points if you have a McDonald’s Batman mug from the 90s’ to serve it in.
If you want to get saucy, add a shot of Vodka to really get into that holiday spirit. Enjoy my nostalgic nuggets! Let me know in the comments if you used this recipe and tell me what you think!
