This boozy Fish Bowl Cocktail is made with blue Hawaiian punch, coconut rum and fish candies served in fish bowl drink glasses. Perfect party drink for adults!
If you haven’t sipped a cocktail from a fish bowl, are you truly living? It’s a trend that’s taken the world by storm, especially among adults, but don’t worry, I’ve got a non-alcoholic version for the kids to join in on the fun too!
Traditionally, fish bowl drinks are meant to be shared among friends, however, for a more personal experience, we serve them in smaller fish bowls, perfect for individuals. If you’re in a sharing mood, just double the recipe and serve it in a larger fish bowl with multiple straws.
Whether you’re hosting a summer party or simply want to treat yourself to something special, the fish bowl cocktail is guaranteed to make a splash.

Best Fish Bowl Glasses for Drinks
There are several fish bowl cocktail glasses you can use for this drink. Here are a few of our favorites.
- Glass Fish Bowl: These can usually be found in any store for less but may not be ideal as they are breakable.
- Plastic Fish Bowl: The traditional way to serve a fish bowl drink in and perfect for transporting to the beach, boat or pool and won’t break. You can find a large fish bowl glass for sharing or small fish bowl glasses for individual servings. They also have ones with lids and straws built in.
- Punch Bowl: Serving a crowd? Try a traditional punch bowl style where everyone can fill their own fish bowl. Set up a station with fish bowl punch, fish bowl glass, straws and Swedish fish on the side for everyone to create their own.
While it’s usually served in a fish bowl, doesn’t mean that you have to. A tall or wide glass would also work for this drink.
Fish bowl cocktails are usually strong as they contain multiple types of alcohol, however, this particular recipe is not as it is for an individual and not sharing.
Absolutely! Fishbowl drinks are totally customizable with your favorite fruit juices, spirits, mixers and more.
While it’s best to serve fishbowl cocktails fresh, you could make this in advance and store in fridge. Mix well and add garnishes and candy before serving.
