Spike Your Juice Product Review & Giveaway

Back in the day, my husband's grandma used to make her own hooch. She'd assemble a bunch of ingredients, toss it all together and put a balloon on the top. When the balloon was inflated, the juice was ready to drink. It took weeks, sometimes a month!

My husband and I were very excited to try Spike Your Juice. It's something we can do together and then share with our friends and family. It's pretty cool to share and take pride (and show off a little) that we made that yummy beverage.

It's very easy to use. Purchase a 64oz bottle of juice, preferably Welch's or Oceanspray. Our first bottle was Welch's Blackberry Grape Juice. Pour in a packet of Spike Your Juice, put the supplied top on and wait 48 hours. We enjoyed checking our juice every few hours to see how the process was working. By the end of the second day, the Airlock was full and we knew it was ready to taste.

Sweet and bubbly, yum! For a drier, more tart taste let it ferment a bit longer. Just make sure you don't put the cap on, use a rubber stopper. Otherwise, the bottle will burst. It's a lot of fun to make and it's pretty economical. The box of Spike Your Juice comes with six packets, six bottle labels, one airlock, and one rubber stopper and fun recipes.

Good to know: The US Federal law permits adults over the age of 21 to make 100 gallons of beer or wine per year for personal use and not for resale. This particular box of six packets makes three gallons.

You can make it the way you like it, have fun, show off and save money! Easy, easy! We love it!!

One lucky winner will win their own box of Spike Your Juice!

Contest ends October 24th.  USA Only.  Winner has 48 hours to respond to email or a new winner will be selected.  Prize shipped direct from sponsor.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

  1. This looks so cool! My mom used to make her own "hooch" too ! I've done a bit, especially experimenting with sangria!

  2. Hi! This looks fun to try out...wonder how it would taste with apple cider...hmm.

  3. Count me in for the "hooch-making"! :-)


The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.

Thank you for taking time out of your day to leave a comment. It's appreciated.
