#Pinspiration: 5 Pink Cocktails for Spring That Will Knock Your Socks Off!

pinkcocktailsYo, guys.  I’ve missed the last two Pinspiration weeks as I was sick as a dog the first week and in Disneyland the next.  But I’m back with a fun one this week – pink drinks and recipes that inspired me on Pinterest!

Colleen and I have planning the menu for our Mom Mixer event this upcoming Saturday in Philadelphia. (150 Mom bloggers, great brands & all sorts of mingling and fun for the day here)  One of the things we were looking into was having a fun pink drink for attendees.  I had WAY too much fun looking up pink cocktails on Pinterest.  So many choices!  For fun, here’s a few that inspired me – I have them all pinned and am planning a taste test this summer:

Muddle 2 watermelon chunks with the juice of 1 lime and 2 teaspoons sugar in each glass. Stir in a handful of mint leaves, then add 2 ounces white rum and ice. Top with ginger ale; garnish with more mint.

2 oranges
3 limes
1/4 cup sugar
6 cups ice
1 (10 ounce) bag frozen sweetened raspberries
1 cup silver tequila
