Terrible
This tastes like an alcoholics dream. If you want a hard liquor disaster this is it. This is nothing close to a hand grenade. You can't even taste the melon. Whoever came up with this concoction needs help if they aren't already dead.

my oppion on the hand grenade drink
ok, so i was on berbon st. last weekend and i had about 4 hand granades and when i asked around what was in it, everyone gave me the same awnser, i dont know but it tastes amazing and it gets the job done. however, one thing that everyone said was in it as one of the main forms of booze was everclear, and even the bartenders backed this up. so you might want to revise this recipe. thnx

Greg said on 2010-05-30 23:11:54.090
duhhh
grain alcohol is everclear. and this drink isn't straight alcohol there are other ingredients not listed here which is why someone is trying to get you to goto tropicalisle.com to get the mix which contains no alcohol.

grain alcohol
JASON, everclear is grain alcohol. ...

Ashley said on 2010-08-22 00:20:30.950

"grain alcohol" IS everclear... but I still don't know if this is right because this concoction looks like something that would taste absolutely DIGUSTING and I have had the hand grenade multiple times and it tastes just like koolaid. There has to be some sort of trick behind it. It gets you drunk really fast although it does not taste like alcohol at all!

jeseca said on 2010-09-01 13:23:45.647
alcohol
The grain alcohol that it calls for is everclear.

said on 2010-11-02 16:20:37.487
it'll get you toasted :)
how many people does it take to explain that everclear is grain alcohol? it's been a couple years since i've had one, but i seem to remember a sour apple taste and even being told it contains something like sour apple schnapps...

Try adding green monster energy drink ;)

JL said on 2010-12-10 10:47:14.713
IT IS HORRIBLE
i had the real thing on bourbon st, all you can taste is the melon liquor. and i hate melon liquor.

eric said on 2010-12-13 18:05:37.937

a bartender at tropical isle told me to add this recipe to 5 gallons of pineapple juice and i cant remember if you add sweet and sour or lime juice i was a little drunk thanks to the hand grenade 3 litres vodka 3 litres melon liqeuor 2 litres everclear 5 cups sugar pineappe juice concentrate

K-dot said on 2011-02-12 22:23:13.863
Add mixer ;)
Get ready to breathe fire if you don't add mixers! Otherwise I added some Sierra Mist Natural (throw back Sprite would work too), a pinch of sugar and a little more Midori and... The little lady says it kind of tastes like the real thing! We were there at tropical isle last weekend :)

facts
Can somebody please tell me how to properly make either the hand grenade drink from tropical isle or the turtle drink from turtle bay since both are the same? I am not trying to do anything commercial with it nor am I trying to spread it on the internet. I am trying to find it to enjoy this drink in the privacy of my own home and until I get it I will continue to post on a daily basis what I know all over the internet. I will be more than happy with either version, the one using the grenade mix (it is this commercial mix that holds the trademark which tropical isle uses) or the original hand grenade mix version (which turtle bay (operated by ex-tropical isle employees) stole and is using and is not trademarked by tropical isle because the trademark was moved to their commercial mix however both are the same thing). Please if you can help send recipe to handgrenaderecipe@yahoo.com I would prefer it not be posted that way I can see and get it bofore or just in case it gets deleted from a posting reply. Please feel free to create a fake email to send recipe, although you do have my word ALL information will remain anonymous and private Drink Info (all info pretty much applies to both versions of the recipe) 1- For full strength drink they add an additional 2.5-3oz (thinking 3oz) of liquor prior to dispensing drink (this is done at both topical isle and turtle bay) NOT DONE ON WEEKENDS 2- The additional 2.5-3oz added contains rum (assuming rum and everclear mix) this could possibly have simple syrup added to it (tropical itch alcohol mix) 3- Weekend version has only about 3oz of alcohol and is a mixture of vodka and everclear (horny gator alcohol mix) so don’t waste your money at either place 4- Something else is added (not sure this is where I need help besides vodka, water, rum, everclear, and mix what is missing) that gives it a little flavor of orange (thinking orgeat or triple sec) and maybe lemon lime sour mix and a simple syrup 5- Tropical isles Grenade mix is a mixture of pineapple juice (kind dispensed from bars in bag in box) melon flavoring (assuming honey dew melon snow ball syrup) and some kind of lime (possibly lime snow ball syrup as well) original recipe (the one used by turtle bay) is probably made the same except instead of lime syrup they might use lime crystals (lasco, ready rabbit, etc…) not sure. Although they could use lime syrup and maybe even use a daiquiri base mix 6- Mix comes from national fruit flavor company (above listed syrups can be found on their website as well) (national fruit flavor does not sell to individuals but you can buy through their distributors) 7- Full strength version has 5 oz. of alcohol (some sites say this drink is equal to about 4.5 standard drinks, a standard drink contains 1.5 oz. of alcohol. If you do the math and work the numbers it would be equal to about 1 oz. everclear 190 Proof and 4 oz. of other 80 proof liquor) 8- When they make this drink they use about a 2:1 ratio (water/alcohol: grenade mix) this is with the vodka, everclear, water mix (about 1oz of water per oz. of grenade mix you can add to taste) (this ratio probably also applies to the horny gator and the tropical itch) 9- I know when they are really busy they (tropical isle) make it in a jug and sell it out of a window. when they make it they (they double this recipe to make more) use 1 gallon of their grenade mix and I saw on a website (however not sure if correct but seems about right but it came from a recipe that was at one time correct using the mix but it had been altered to take out the grenade mix) This recipe stated it contained 3 liters vodka, 3 liters rum, 2 liters everclear, and it called for 5 cups of something not sure what, it was altered before seeing it or if there was something else that may have been deleted 10- Using the above info it breaks down to for tropical itch recipe .75oz rum to .25 oz. everclear. 11- For horny gator it is the same as above .75oz vodka to .25 oz. everclear 12- When making grenade drink per 20 glass filled with ice (low alcohol content) its 3oz a

Please feel free to create a fake email to send recipe, although you do have my word ALL information will remain anonymous and private Drink Info 1- I know when they are really busy they (tropical isle) make it in a jug and sell it out of a window. On a website it said when they make it (they double this recipe to make more) they use 1 gallon of their grenade mix, I believe 5 cups of water,3 liters vodka, 3 liters (not sure but think triple sec ,finest call. This is the ingredient I need help with), 2 liters everclear, The water can be adjusted to taste 2- For full strength drink they add an additional 2.5-3oz (thinking 3oz) of liquor prior to dispensing drink THIS IS NOT DONE ON WEEKENDS 3- The additional 2.5-3oz added contains rum (rum and everclear mix) this could possibly have simple syrup added to it (tropical itch alcohol mix) 4- Weekend version has 4 oz of alcohol and is a mixture of vodka, everclear, and Believe triple sec (finest call) 5- Tropical isles Grenade mix is a mixture of pineapple juice (kind dispensed from bars in bag in box) melon flavoring (assuming honey dew melon snow ball syrup) and some kind of lime (possibly lime snow ball syrup as well) original recipe (the one used by turtle bay) is probably made the same except instead of lime syrup they might use lime crystals (lasco, ready rabbit, etc…) not sure. Although they could use lime syrup and maybe even use a daiquiri base mix. All syrup mixes come from national fruit flavor company (above listed syrups can be found on the national fruit flavor website as well) (national fruit flavor does not sell to individuals but you can buy through their distributors) 6- to make their shark attack it is 3 full 1 oz shot galss (they pour generous) so its about 3.5 oz vodka, 1 oz sour mix, 1 oz lemon lime soda, and 1 oz grenadine

This drink is weak
I was in N.O. a few weeks ago and had this drink at Tropical Isle. It did absolutely nothing for or to me. It was weak and I will not be getting another one any time soon. A real let down.

Kelly said on 2012-06-26 00:04:15.350
Turtle ROCKS
You are crazy if you think that the hand grenade is the same as the turtle. The turtle is wonderful and taste 100 times better than the hand grenade. The hand grenade is weak and noting special the turtle is killer!! Love it

Turtle rocks hard
I totally agree with u kelly 100%. That is one of the main reasons why I wanna go back is for that turtle drink it was the bomb baby.. ups to u Louisana cause I dont even like mixed drinks. But when I tasted that turtle I was hooked. I would go back every nite the weekend I was there,just for the drink. I was there on a bus tour in 2012. I was very satisfied...hats off to u guys and everyone was so friendly and nice. Had a blast
