Ingredients Needed

The Fat Frog Cocktail is a mix of familiar ingredients, each playing a crucial role in creating its unique taste and appearance.

Soda or beer provides refreshing fizziness and a slightly tangy edge, balancing the sweetness from the popsicles. The choice between soda and beer can vary depending on personal preference, with soda offering a sweeter profile and beer a more bitter touch.
