Lilo and Stitch Inspired Cocktail for all those families we make on our own, just like Stitch says “This is my family. I found it all on my own. It’s little and broken, but still good.“

This isn’t my first Disney’s Lilo and Stitch inspired creation. The first one was inspired after Experiment 626 himself and is perfect for kids. You can find that Lilo and Stitch Inspired Mocktail recipe here. But there is something special and unique about the original Lilo and Stitch that made its debut back in 2002. So much so, that I felt we needed a new experiment, this time inspired by Lilo. Enter a Lilo and Stitch inspired cocktail.
Lilo holds a special place in my heart because she reminds me so much of my own daughter. She dances to the beat of her own drum. And I love that so much about her. She gets in trouble, a lot of trouble. Again, just like my daughter. But she creates her own path, finds her own village and stays happy despite having gone through some of the most traumatic of experiences. And at the end of the day, being happy is what I wish most for my kids in life.
Lets find the positives, stay happy and learn to make a Lilo & Stitch Inspired cocktail to share with our own little family we find, even if it’s a little broken.

Fruit Juicy Red Hawaiian Punch is a fruit juice with tropical flavors and a bright red color. Perfect for Lilo who lives in Hawaii and wears an iconic red dress
Pineapple Juice adds a hint of tropical flavors and fits perfect for a drink inspired by a girl who lives in Hawaii!
