Juicy Juice Orange Tangerine Ecto Cooler
This juice orange tangerine ecto cooler is the ideal way to toast Ghostbusters: Afterlife’s release! This recipe calls for orange and tangerine juices as well as lemonade mix, all strained to remove pulp before sweetening with lemonade concentrate.
This juice cocktail looks almost exactly like the classic Ecto Cooler. Its green hue and citrusy-tart flavor will have you thinking of Ectoplasm, the substance left behind when characters from Ghostbusters die (or ghosts in general).
Making homemade fruity cocktails is much simpler than you might think and will have your entire family enjoying this refreshing beverage in no time! All you need are some basic ingredients which can easily be found at any grocery store.
How to Prepare It:
Begin by filling a 1-gallon pitcher with orange and tangerine juices – about an ounce each. Next, add in some lemonade concentrate (this will make the drink tart and give it that zesty kick).
You can buy this recipe in packs of four or eight bottles, making it a breeze to get started! For those with more time on their hands and interested in DIYing, mash up some fresh tangerines and oranges to use as the base.
Why You Should Try It:
Juicy orange tangerine ecto cooler was created by Hi-C as a product tie-in to the cartoon series The Real Ghostbusters, based on the 1984 film Ghostbusters. This popular beverage became a favorite among kids and was produced for more than ten years after the show’s final episode in 1991.
The juice cocktail became an instant hit due to its neon green color and featured Slimer from the series on its packaging. Rebranding an older Hi-C beverage called Citrus Cooler that had been around for over a decade made this successful campaign last longer than anticipated, though not quite as long as its animated show counterpart did.
