“The drink was like water, indeed very like the taste of the draughts they had drunk from the Entwash near the borders of the forest…”
So my boyfriend (the obvious LOTR fanatic here) actually found this recipe one day when he was looking up unique, fun drinks we could make one night when some friends were coming over. It turned out to be REALLY good and quickly became a staple for us! Not to mention it is SUPER easy to make!
Just 4 ingredients and that’s IT! Not to mention, the fruity, refreshing taste and frothy, foamy appearance makes it a fun and perfect drink to have while hanging out with friends on a hot, summer night!
Now, I know what you’re probably thinking… “The ent-draught Merry and Pippin drank in the movie was clearrrrrrrr.”
YOU’RE RIGHT all you wonderful LOTR experts you!! BUT think of this version as more of a tribute to the flavor and feeling they got from the drink.
“The effect of the draught began at the toes, and rose steadily through every limb, bringing refreshment and vigor as it coursed upwards, right to the tips of the hair…”
Did JRR Tolkien know what he was talking about or WHAT in “The Two Towers?!” Mighty fine writing. We applaud you sir, we applaud you.
Here’s how to make it:
2 ½ shots Coconut Rum
2 shots Melon Schnapps
½ shot Raspberry Schnapps
Pineapple Juice to fill up glass
1. Pour all 3 liquors into a pint glass.
*Instead of a pint glass, check out this cool LotR beer mug on Etsy! I got this one (pictured) for Jordan for Christmas and he LOVED it!*
2. Add pineapple juice to fill up the glass.
3. Shake well. *We just put the lid back on the jar we used for this, but you can also transfer to a shaker!*
4. Pour back into glass (it will be foamy on top!) and enjoy!
Here’s to Merry and Pippin! *Clink!*
