Did you know that 1st July is International joke day? In recognition of this important event, we’ve put together a list of cocktails that were made for the occasion. Drink enough of them, and even the lamest joke might seem a little funnier to you!

Funny Banana

Why don’t bananas ever get lonely?

Because they hang out in bunches!

And let’s be honest, bananas must be the most popular fruits around. Which is why we know
you’ll love this fruity cocktail. Made with vodka, orange juice, coconut cream,
and lemonade, this drink is shaken with crushed ice and a banana to make for a
surprisingly tasty combination. You’ll go bananas for it!


How long does it take the Joker to hatch an evil plan?

Jester minute!

He may be the villain, but the Joker can be funny too. And this cocktail dedicated to him is bloody lovely! A tasty blend of vodka, Cointreau, advocaat, lemonade, and fizzy orange, it adds fizz to the cream, cutting through nicely with sharp spirit. Sounds just like the Joker to us!

Snickers Shot

I swapped the wrappers around on my wife’s Halloween candy.

Now she’s got her Snickers in a Twix over it!

Everyone loves a good snicker, and this shot is the very best one! Toast to good health
and better jokes before downing this delight, made up of Kahlua, salt, and
Frangelico. Then let the fun begin!

Giggling Sunset

What do you call twin brothers?

A sunset!

This cocktail sounds like a dream, combining two of our favourite things – giggling and sunsets! It tastes delicious too, with an impressive ingredients list. In this drink, you’ll find Malibu, Cointreau, vodka,  cane rum, crème de banana, orange juice, grenadine, and passion fruit syrup. Bliss!

Chucks Combo

When Chuck Norris does a push-up, he isn’t pushing himself up. He's pushing the earth down.

Fans of Chuck Norris will adore this cocktail combination. They all know just how tough the martial art master is, and they know that all Chuck Norris jokes have an element of truth – but they’re still funny! This drink is simply Barcardi O and Mountain Dew, and it will have you believing you can do things Chuck Norris can do. And you will laugh. A lot!

There is nothing more soothing to the soul than a good giggle, so celebrate International Joke Day every year. Preferably with one of these cocktails.

Bartender's top tip

A well-chosen garnish can enhance both the flavor and appearance of your cocktail. Beyond the visual appeal, garnishes like citrus twists, olives, or cocktail onions can subtly influence the overall taste profile of your drink. Practice techniques like expressing a citrus peel to release the aromatic oils over the drink, enhancing its aroma and flavor.
