Crack Open These Boozy Nutcrackers in a Little Hug Barrel

Seeing a Little Hugs juice barrel brings us a wave of nostalgia, so how 'bout we bring along a wave of booze to go with it? Mix up this Nutcracker with two types of rum, blue curaçao, Hpnotiq, lemon lime soda, and of course, some juice from the Little Hugs. 

Nutcracker in a Little Hug

  • ⅓ cup 151 proof rum
  • ⅓ cup gold rum
  • ⅓ cup spiced whiskey 
  • ½ bottle Hpnotiq
  • ¼ cup blue curaçao
  • 7 Little Hugs (we used blue & green)
  • 1 liter lemon lime soda
  • Remove aluminum lid and pour out Little Hug liquid into a punch bowl filled with ice.
  • Add the remaining liquids to the punch bowl and mix well.
  • Ladle Nutcracker into the saved Little Hug bottles and place the aluminum cap back on. You can also choose to freeze the Little Hugs for a frozen slush version.
