Do you celebrate Galentine’s Day? My daughters and I have celebrated a version of a girls’ Day since they were little. So when our Idol Leslie Knope from Parks and Recreation coined the term Galentine’s Day in an episode, we were all, After all, what’s not to love about celebrating female friendship!
Speaking of friendships, today I am participating in a blog hop organized by my friend Pasha Accardi from Pasha at Home. Everyone shares their favorite ways of celebrating Valentine’s/Gale tine’s Day. If you are popping over from my fellow Michigander Kim @ Cottage in the Mitten, a warm wintery welcome!
Our previous Galentine celebrations have ranged from elaborate to quick meet-ups. The one thing they always have in common is a pretty cocktail. In fact, we have two rules for our Galentine’s Day cocktails. They need to be pretty, and they need to be PINK!
Today, I am sharing a couple of our favorite Galentine’s Day Cocktails:
This cocktail is very easy, and since I like Vodka, one we make for several occasions. Mix this cocktail in the glass.
Using a High Ball glass, rim the edge with colored sugar. I used a festive pink here.
Add the Ice and Vodka
Next, pour in the Sparkling Limeade.
Top off with the Grenadine, add garnish (optional), and stir.
This is perfect for brunch, baby showers, and even a book club.
Add 1 1/2 oz of Tart Cherry Juice for a Cherry Vodka High Ball- garnish with lime and a cherry.
For a more tropical version, use mango-flavored Vodka and 1 oz of orange liqueur.
Mix the ingredients together and serve cold. Serves 8.
I believe pretty cocktails should be served in a beautiful glass! Shop some of my favorites here.
I hope you try the recipes, and if you do, let me know what you think. Are you ready to see more inspiration? Make sure you stop by and see what everyone is sharing today. Next up on the hop is Melanie from My Sweet Savannah and her beautiful DIY Vintage Valentine’s Letter.
