You have a few different options for how to serve this fun party drink.
What To Serve A Fish Bowl Cocktail In
- Traditional Fish Bowl: This is how the drink is normally served up: huge bowl with a bunch of straws and everybody shares.
- Individual Fish Bowl: Sharing with a bunch of friends, not your style? It’s not mine either, so I recommend grabbing some individual fish bowls. I get mine at Dollar Tree in the vase aisle.
- Plastic Fish Bowl: These are great for pool days because they won’t break AND they come with a lid and built-in straw hole.
- Classic Punch Bowl: Don’t want to share but want to mix up a big batch for a party? Serve it in a traditional punch bowl with a ladle and keep ice and Swedish fish on the side for guests to add their own!
