Unless you’re an alligator, swamp water is probably not your idea of a good time. Luckily for you, the Swamp Water Cocktail is not made for alligators but for thirsty land-based party animals instead. This classic and mostly forgotten-about cocktail became popular in the golden years of the Rusty Nail and Harvey Wallbanger and will be a great addition to your Halloween cocktail ideas.
So, if it’s not murky water infested with gators and other creepy-crawlies, what is Swamp Water exactly? Turns out, this gruesome-green cocktail is actually delicious. The Swamp Water drink recipe is made by shaking together green Chartreuse, pineapple juice, and lime with ice and then straining it into a Collins glass over more ice.
If you’re having a Halloween party, this is a great cocktail easily made with just three ingredients and is ideal for serving in a batch to keep those party animals at bay.
