As far as this Cactus Cooler mixed drink recipe is concerned, it calls for mandarin vodka, energy drink (i.e. Red Bull), a splash of orange juice, and, of course, Peach Schnapps. And while it’s unclear where this drink was first made or who deserves the credit for making it, the one thing we’re sure of is that it doesn’t actually contain any Cactus Cooler.

According to the Cactus Cooler wikipedia page, it’s “[a drink] distinguished by its orange, yellow, and green label with saguaro cacti, is an orange-pineapple soft drink sold in the United States, mainly in the Southern California area and surrounding Southwestern United States.” Does this have anything to do with the Cactus Cooler cocktail recipe?
