Pretty in Pink Cocktail

Let's face it: Spring is the best season to feel fresh and pretty!

Something about the weather, the feeling of newness, the soft sunshine and the feel in the air always makes me feel my most feminine and pretty.

But there's more to Spring than meets the eye. It's a season of amazing change, strength, growth, rainstorms and cold snaps. 

If the seasons had genders, Spring is as powerfully feminine as you get.

Spring is a complex season that is both soft and strong, so in running with that theme I've come up with a new spring cocktail based on a movie that GETS spring, femininity and strength: Pretty in Pink.

One part sweet, one part spunky, this cocktail is the dichotomy of being a woman all rolled up into one beverage.

Plus it's pretty and pink!

Spring is my favourite time to experiment with new cocktail recipes, especially girlie ones. 

With Wedding season and showers about to launch into high gear there is ALWAYS a need for a new cocktail that will delight a room of women.

So why not mix up a cocktail that is sweet, sour, and oh so very pink?

The Pretty in Pink Cocktail 


  • 1 tsp cherry juice from maraschino cherry jar
  • 3 dashes blackcurrant bitters*
  • 1 oz vodka
  • 3 oz pink lemonade**
  • top up with sparkling wine
  • garnish with a maraschino cherry!
*If you can't find blackcurrant bitters, use a small dash of blackcurrant cordial

**look, you can buy fancy pink lemonade, but I think the best one to use is the from-concentrate frozen McCain Pink Lemonade! It gives the drink more spunk!

Directions: Pour into a class over ice, mix it up and enjoy!

So here are my questions for you! Do you have a favourite cocktail that you like to bust out for spring? How do you feel about spring? What's your favourite thing about being powerfully feminine (or about the powerfully feminine woman in your life!)
