Everyone knows jungle juice is just a mix of whatever you have on hand. Well, believe it or not, jungle juice does have a history, and it Is made with whatever you have on hand. The name jungle juice was created during World War II by the American soldiers fighting in the pacific. There was no guarantee when your next supply shipment would come on these dense, heavily forested Islands or what would be in them. So they made do with whatever booze they got and whatever mixers (mostly fruit) they had around. Thus jungle juice was created. So it is correct that there is no official jungle juice recipe and an actual jungle juice is whatever you got mixed. I have provided here a fancy fruit juice recipe with booze, but you can do whatever the hell you want. If you don’t have any idea of what you wish to then hopefully, this recipe helps give you an idea.

Again, you can technically use whatever you want, but this is a fantastic recipe. Everyone I know who has had this is blown back by it, and then when I explain the whole jungle juice history are left very impressed. It is a lot of ingredients, but they all go together very well in the amounts I have listed.
