Three pretty and pink cocktail recipes- perfect for celebrating love! - A Life Unfolding

Three pretty and pink cocktail recipes- perfect for celebrating love!

Since February is the month we celebrate love, and I love a pretty cocktail for just about any occasion, I thought I’d share my three favorite pretty and pink cocktails that are the perfect festive touch for your Valentine’s celebration.

My idea of a wonderful cocktail recipe is simple.

One, it must be pretty, and two, it must taste delicious!

Add bonus points if they are easy to make!

Giggle Juice Cocktail-Pretty and Pink

Fresh Strawberries and Lemon slices are yummy and very pretty!

First Up: Giggle Juice

Ingredients

  • 750 ML bottle of Champagne

  • 3 cups of Pink Lemonade

  • 1 cup of Lemon-Lime soda

  • 1 cup of vodka

  • 2 cups of sliced strawberries

  • Large Lemon, sliced into half-moons

  • Ice

  • Sugar for rimming the glasses

Pretty and Pink! Fresh Strawberries and Lemon Slices in a Pretty Pink Cocktail called Giggle Juice

Directions

  • Rim a pretty glass with a lemon wedge and dip in sugar.
  • In a large pitcher, pour Champagne, Pink Lemonade, soda, and Vodka and stir.
  • Add sliced fruit and ice and stir.

Please note- they do not call this recipe Giggle Juice for nothing!

Don’t skip the sugar on the rim, and It’s simply too pretty to miss.

Makes eight servings.

  • 1 cup silver tequila

  • 1/2 cup Triple Sec

  • 750 ML bottle of Pink Champagne

  • Lime Wedges for rim

  • Coarse salt for rim

Okay, in the spirit of 100% disclosure, this cocktail is a very light pink -I don’t want to steer you wrong.

The color comes from using pink Champagne.

You could substitute a Moscato for a darker pink.

That’s it for my three pretty and pink cocktails recipes- you have to admit they are perfect for celebrating love!

If you are looking for more fancy cocktails, one of my very favorite sights to find cocktail recipes is Delish.

My hubby is a huge fan of their recipes, but I peruse the cocktail recipes instead since I am a terrible cook!

Hey, I say go with what you love!
