Riot Punch Cocktail Recipe

Actually yes, there really is a recipe for Riot Punch.

The drink is a centrepiece on It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, something the gang imbibe with enthusiasm before (and during) the big game. It is traditionally mixed in an empty milk jug so that it can be easily passed around at a large gathering – Game or riot, your choice.

Everclear is a 151-proof grain alcohol made from distilled corn. It is so potentially toxic that the sale of Everclear is banned in at least eight states in the US. Basically, you’re drinking pure ethanol. This does tend to give you a rather sobering reminder of what being “blind drunk” really means.

If you’re still raring to give it a try, you need to make a hard decision about your Gatorade. Purple or blue. Anything else just looks like Jungle Juice, and you really want that electric colour to glow through the jug.

Finally, stay away from the Kool-aid. Some people try to pour the powder down the neck of the jug and just end up getting it everywhere except where they want it to go. Stick to Gatorade. It mixes more easily and, if anything possibly could, drowns out some of the Everclear “chemical cleaner” taste.

Here’s what you need:


  • 1 Bottle of Everclear/Grain Alcohol
  • 3 bottles (minimum) of Gatorade


  1. Pour the Everclear into an empty milk jug.
  2. Pour in at least 3 bottles of Gatorade. More if you want to feel your lips when you’re drinking.
  3. Shake.
  4. Garnish – Just kidding.


  • Empty Milk Jug
