Bullfrog Drink Cocktail

Is the Bullfrog drink a perfect summer cocktail? Absolutely.

Why? Simple. Refreshing. Only two ingredients. No blender.

I’m a big fan of simple vodka cocktails, particularly in the summer, because of the light cool tastes. Even better when a refreshing mixed drink is in hand quickly, with no complicated recipe or the need to scrub a blender afterward.

Plus, there’s just something about the lime flavor in a Bullfrog drink that reminds me of my favorite vacation destination, Key West.

Limeade or Lemonade?

For such an easy mixed drink, there are quite a few variations and much more complicated concoctions. Maybe we’ve run out of clever names for cocktails?

Some recipes add Mountain Dew or 7Up, Blue Curacao and even Red Bull. I’d normally say “don’t mess with a classic drink” but I’m guilty of changing it up too. I definitely recommend deviating from the official recipe, but only slightly.

The Bullfrog cocktail recipe published in the 1988 Mr. Boston Official Bartender’s Guide calls for lemonade, but I think it’s a much better drink when using Limeade. The added tart from the lime juice keeps this cocktail from becoming ultra sweet.

Of course, you may prefer the traditional and sweeter Bullfrog cocktail. In that case, simply substitute Minute Maid Frozen Lemonade for the Limeade in the below recipe.

Here’s how to make the (almost classic) Bullfrog Cocktail:

Bullfrog Drink Recipe:

Ingredients for a Pitcher:

  • 1 (12oz) Can Minute Maid Frozen Limeade  (or 1 bottle of the pre-made Limeade)
  • 12-14 Vodka shots
  • Lime for garnish (optional)

Mixing Directions:

  1.  Mix Frozen Limeade with 4 1/3 cup of water and stir until mixed – or use the already mixed Limeade
  2.  Add 12-14 shots of your choice of Vodka
  3.  Stir
  4.  Pour over ice in a highball glass
  5.  Serve with a wedge of lime

Recipe Tips:

If your drink tastes too much of lime, simply add a little more water to the mixture (or Vodka, but you didn’t hear that from me!).

Also, If you want to dress it up a little, slice 2 limes into lime wheels and add to the pitcher. The lime wheels do add to a prettier presentation.
