Interesting facts about Gator Piss

  • Despite its off-putting name, Gator Piss is a delicious, fruity cocktail.
  • The cocktail's name is a playful nod to its origin in the alligator-filled regions of the southern United States.
  • The 151 proof rum gives the Gator Piss its potent kick.


Peach Schnapps

Peach schnapps brings a fruity sweetness that makes Gator Piss approachable, despite the strong alcohol content. It's the touch of Southern comfort in a swirl of spirituous rigor. Go less, and you'll miss the peachy keen; go more, and you'll think you're biting into a boozy fruit salad.

Pineapple Juice

Adding a tropical twist, pineapple juice balances the sweetness with some tartness. It's the middleman between spirit and taste buds; neglect it, and the drink tilts into a heavyweight punch. It's also a sneaky hydrator amidst the potency.

Emma Rose

Southern Comfort

Smooth and with a whiskey foundation, Southern Comfort infuses warmth and a hint of spice to the mix. It's the blanket in the cocktail, wrapping all ingredients in a cozy embrace. Miss it out? The chill of absence will be felt, leaving a gap where mellow meets strong.

151 Proof Rum

The big bouncer of the drink, 151 proof rum brings the fire. It's what turns the cocktail from a mild mannered drink to 'Gator Piss.' Omit it, and you've got a kitten instead of a gator. For a milder kick, dial it down and substitute with a lower proof rum—you'll keep the party polite.

In case you forgot basics how to make Gator Piss

Add your ingredients to the shaker first, then ice. Fill it up to ¾ of its capacity to ensure enough space for shaking. Hold the shaker with both hands (one on the top and one on the bottom) and shake vigorously. The shake should come from your shoulders, not your wrists.

Learn everything on how to shake

Place your chosen strainer on top of the shaker or mixing glass, ensuring a secure fit. Pour the cocktail into a glass through the strainer, which will catch solid ingredients and ice. If double straining, hold the fine mesh strainer between the shaker and the glass.
