Fountain of Youth? Try a DIY Vodka Cocktail Fountain Instead!

Fountain of Youth? …. More like “Fountain of Fun”!

The Fountain of Youth may just be a Want to serve a signature mixed drink at your next party? 

My fiance & I did! However, we didn’t like the idea of pitchers or punch bowl of the drink sitting on the table where only a few people will venture away from the traditional beer and wine. So we got creative! 

We made a cocktail fountain! That’s right a flowing fountain of a delicious, easy to drink cocktail! 


Personally, one of my all time favorite cocktails is a Tom Collins with my family’s recipe. Here is the recipe! 

Tom Collins Recipe –

½ Fresh Lemon Juice 

2 oz. Gin (substitute Vodka if you aren’t a Gin fan) 

1 oz. Simple Syrup 

2 Leaves of Mint 

2 Dash of bitters 

Shake in Cocktail Shaker with Ice until the shaker becomes frosted. 

Strain and pour into glass, add Ice 

4 oz. of Chilled Club Soda 

Garnish with Mint Spring and/or Maraschino Cherry 


That drink is delicious when it’s a small group relaxing together on a warm summer day.. Not exactly easy to replicate on a grand scale for a party. Correct! So here is my Party Tom Collins Recipe! 


Our Tom Collins for Fountains Recipe –

Please adjust & measure to your fountain server’s volume. 

2 Parts Vodka 

*Arguably the most accessible Spirit in the world. Your guests will appreciate switching to Vodka 

2 Parts Lemonade 

*I strongly recommend selecting a lemonade made not from concentrate, to get the freshest taste. My go to for fresh tasting, premade lemonade is Simply here in the U.S. Trust the brands you know. 

* Want to mix it up? Select Simply’s Strawberry Lemonade, Raspberry Lemonade, Mango Lemonade or Blueberry Lemonade. All very delicious. (https://www.simplyorangejuice.com/products)

Pour these into your fabulous drink fountain (or Punch Bowl or Pitchers)! 

Garnish & Special Touches for Your Cocktail Fountain Drinks –

In bowls beside the fountain, have fresh mint and cherries available for your guests to garnish their drinks. 

Finally, set up an ice bucket with a bottle of Club Soda beside the fountain with a measuring jigger so guests can add a bit of sparkle to their drinks!
