Cocktails + Mocktails

How to Host a Baller VMA Party

Over the years many iconic moments in pop culture have happened at the MTV Video Music Awards. Who can forget the passionate smooch shared by Madonna and Britney or last year’s foam finger debacle. To make sure you don’t miss out on the fresh scuttlebut that’s sure to come out of this year’s awards why not throw a little bash for you and your pals?


We’ve concocted a custom cocktail & mocktail based off the infamous “Moonman” for your VMA viewing enjoyment. First up, for a stellar party, forget the classic punch bowl and instead drink your libations out of something that looks like an astronaut’s helmet. Behold, Molokai Moonjuice. A punch that packs a punch.
