Pink Drinks

Here are some drinks that would be perfect for your valentine’s date night, your gal-entine’s dinner, or your personal netflix binge watching this weekend.

The recipes are delicious and I might be biased (okay completely biased), but they are seriously worth you ordering two.* Plus, drinks just taste better when they’re pink right? 

Some of my favorite pink drinks: 


Pink Gin Fizz

2 ounces orange juice
1 1/4 ounces gin
1 tablespoon simple syrup
4 ounces fresh pink grapefruit juice
Seltzer

In a glass, pour orange juice over ice. Combine gin, simple syrup, and pink grapefruit juice; slowly pour over orange juice. Top with seltzer.

This drink doesn’t look pink in this picture but that was because I didn’t pour it slowly over the OJ. I was too excited!

Kir Royale

1 oz Creme de Cassis
Champagne

Pour Creme de Cassis in the glass and tilt the glass and fill it with your champagne or sparkling wine.

The Paloma

¼ cup tequila
¼ cup club soda
¼ cup fresh grapefruit juice
1 tbsp fresh lime juice
1 tsp sugar
Small plate with sugar
Grapefruit wedge

In your cocktail glass combine grapefruit juice, lime juice, and sugar, mixing until sugar dissolves. Add tequila, club soda, and ice.

Also if for some reason you happen to end up at the Four Seasons (especially in Austin) you need to try the Pretty in Pink. It’s fantastically delicious and how could it not be? It’s pink, has alcohol, and it’s named after a John Hughes movie. Amazing combo. 


Is your go-to drink pink?
