Pink Cocktails with Vodka
Since vodka is a clear, mostly flavorless alcohol, it's a popular choice for making a pink drink with a punch. This section also includes drinks made with flavored vodkas.
1. Rosemary Pink Grapefruit Moscow Mule
Classic Moscow Mules are made with just vodka, lime juice, and ginger beer. This blush pink Rosemary Grapefruit Moscow Mule gets is gorgeous color from using pink grapefruit juice instead of lime. The bitterness of the grapefruit juice works exceptionally well with the spice of the ginger beer.
2. Pink Dragonfruit Cocktail
There are two kinds of dragonfruit, and while both have pink exteriors, one has a white interior and one has a pink interior. Both will taste great, but use the type with a pink interior to make this stunning pink vodka drink.
3. Cherry Vodka Sour
A Cherry Vodka Sour is a fun and fruity twist on a classic cocktail. If you want to amp up the cherry flavor, try using maraschino cherry syrup instead of the grenadine when making this pink vodka cocktail.
4. Bay Breeze Cocktail
A Bay Breeze cocktail gets its gorgeous pink color from cranberry juice mixed with pineapple juice and vodka. Just three simple ingredients to make such a beautiful, refreshing cocktail perfect for a summer afternoon.
5. Raspberry Hibiscus Cocktail
Floral and fruit notes make this Raspberry Hibiscus Cocktail a perfectly refreshing, light, summer drink.
6. Strawberry Pink Vodka Lemonade Cocktail
A Pink Lemonade Vodka Cocktail is a classic, and so easy to make! This particular recipe is something extra special, though--more complex than just vodka and lemonade. This recipe uses Pink Whitney vodka and strawberry Malibu rum for extra fruity flavor. It makes a pitcher of pink punch, so invite your friends over for a girls' night and whip up a batch.
7. Pink Starburst Shot
Pink starburst shots taste like starburst candies in liquid form, but pack a punch! I love the use of a pink Starburst candy as garnish on the glass.
8. Watermelon Martini
Get your cocktail shaker ready, because it's martini time! Specifically, Watermelon Martini time. If you want to add even more watermelon flavor to this cocktail, try using watermelon syrup instead of the simple syrup called for in this recipe. Either way, it's summery, and fresh, and absolutely delicious!
9. Blood Orange Creamsicle Martini
This creamy, sparkling, perfectly pink orange creamsicle martini gets its glorious rosy hue from fresh blood orange juice. This is the perfect drink for a bridal shower or birthday brunch. It's also absolutely delicious made with regular orange juice--just not that glorious pink color!
10. Watermelon Rosemary Spiked Punch
Watermelon vodka and blended watermelon puree give fabulous watermelon flavor to this spiked watermelon rosemary punch. Whip up a pitcher (this recipe makes 8 servings) for a hot summer day!
11. Raspberry Lime Ricky
This Raspberry Lime Ricky cocktail has tons of fruit flavor thanks to a combination of Chambord, citrus vodka, and raspberry vodka. Paired with fresh lime juice and raspberry lemonade, this beautiful cocktail would make a refreshing beverage for a girls' night in.
12. Blood Orange Moscow Mule
Isn't this blood orange Moscow mule absolutely gorgeous? It's made with Deep Eddy's Peach Vodka (which is spectacular! I've been to the distillery in Austin--well worth a visit if you're there) and Ketel One Botanica Peach & Orange Blossom Vodka. Compliment the traditional lime juice and ginger beer with fresh blood orange juice, and you get one of my favorite pink cocktails. I think I'm requesting this for mother's day!
Pink Cocktails with Tequila
Looking for a delicious drink that's beautifully pink and made with tequila? I've got you covered!
13. Raspberry Rhubarb Margarita
Raspberry rhubarb simple syrup is the secret to the magnificent pink color of these raspberry rhubarb margaritas. Rhubarb comes in a range of colors, from green to bright red. Choose the red variety to get this gorgeous color pink, but this cocktail will taste just as amazing made with any rhubarb.
14. Pink Grapefruit Margarita
Swap out the traditional lime juice in a classic margarita with pink grapefruit juice, and you get a simple cocktail with beautiful color and marvelous tangy flavor. The salt on the rim of the fresh grapefruit margarita helps counteract any bitterness from the grapefruit, so even if you're not usually a grapefruit fan, give this a try!
15. Prickly Pear Margarita
Prickly Pear Margaritas are my favorite margaritas! I typically see the bright pink variety, but did you know there are different types of prickly pear fruits (also known as tunas in Spanish) that range in color and sweetness? Head over to the blog post to learn all about them, and get the recipe for this gorgeous pale pink cocktail.
16. Pineapple Cranberry Margarita
This Pineapple Cranberry margarita was created as a winter holiday drink--not all pink cocktails are summer cocktails! The pecan bitters in the recipe really add to the winter flavors and add a complexity to this drink.
17. Pink Cadillac Margarita
I love the addition of a hibiscus salt rim to this Pink Cadillac Margarita recipe--what a gorgeous addition of color and floral notes. Homemade sweet and sour mix makes this cocktail even better, and a splash of cranberry juice gives the margarita its stunning pink color.

Not all tequila cocktails are margaritas! Try this sweet and spicy watermelon la bruja cocktail, made with triple sec and tequila. It's the perfect cocktail for warmer weather.
19. Sparkling Rhubarb Margarita
A rhubarb margarita that sparkles with fizz from club soda and sparkling wine? Yes, please!
20. Frozen Dragonfruit Margarita
Some dragonfruits have pink flesh inside, and that's what's used to make these frozen dragon fruit margaritas. But I love that a slice of the type of dragonfruit with white inside is used as a contrasting garnish on the glass.
21. Cotton Candy Margarita
Cotton Candy is a classic pink flavor, and these cotton candy margaritas are a fun, grown-up twist on a childhood favorite.
Pink Cocktails with Gin
Gin lends itself to making amazing pink cocktails because traditional gin is colorless, but in recent years, pink gin has become very popular. Whether using classic gin or pink gin, these pink cocktails are sure to please.
22. Rhubarb Gin Fizz Cocktail
The secret to the gorgeous pink color and amazing flavor in this Rhubarb Gin Fizz cocktail is homemade rhubarb simple syrup. It's the perfect summer drink--but be careful, it goes down easily but packs a punch!

Muddled raspberries give this Raspberry Gimlet its gorgeous pink color and a bright summery flavor.
24. Strawberry Basil Gin Cocktail
This Strawberry Basil Gin cocktail is refined and delicious, but really very easy to make. Besides gin, this cocktail also uses elderflower liqueur, which adds a sweet floral note to the drink.
25. Pink Clover Club Cocktail
The Pink Clover Club Cocktail gets its foamy top with egg whites, but if you're a vegan, or you just don't like the idea of using raw egg whites, you can use aquafaba (the liquid that comes in a can of chickpeas) instead. If you don't want to bother with the chickpeas, you can buy a version designed for cocktails, too!
26. Rhubarb Gin and Tonic
One of the things I love best about living in England is how much love there is for rhubarb here! Gin and Tonic is a classic British drink, and so it's only natural to make a pink version with rhubarb. Rhubarb gin and tonics are the perfect springtime drink to make when rhubarb starts showing up in the markets.
27. Pink Lady Cocktail
No roundup of pink cocktails would be complete without the classic Pink Lady Cocktail! A gin and applejack brandy cocktail with sweetness from grenadine syrup, tartness from lemon juice, and garnished with a maraschino cherry and a twist of lemon. A classic pink cocktail that's sure to please.
