Substitutions And Additions
LEMONADE: Substitute raspberry lemonade or even regular lemonade for the pink lemonade. The grenadine will still tint the drink pink if you use regular lemonade, but the pink color of pink or raspberry lemonade really gives the cocktail a lovely color.
VODKA: You can also substitute lemon vodka for this grown-up drink recipe.
How To Make This Pink Flamingo Drink Recipe
OUR RECIPE DEVELOPER SAYS
This pink drink looks especially lovely in a martini glass, but any glass can be used. Serve over ice if you want to use a larger glass. Chill glasses in the freezer for 15-30 minutes before preparing the cocktail for a nice, frosted look and to keep the drink colder a bit longer.
A quick shake in your cocktail shaker, and you’ll be sipping on this refreshingly delicious drink in a few minutes. Let’s get started.
STEP ONE: Fill a cocktail shaker with ice.
STEP TWO: Add the vodka, lemonade, and a splash of grenadine to the shaker. Shake vigorously.
STEP THREE: Pour into a chilled martini glass.
STEP FOUR: Garnish the glass with a lime wedge or wheel.
Serve your delicious cocktail immediately, so that the ice doesn’t melt.
How To Serve
Pink flamingo drinks are the perfect addition to any summer gathering, from poolside cookouts to patio parties. Serve with our fruit salsa and cinnamon chips for an appetizer. Our strawberry lemon cupcakes would be the perfect way to keep the pink theme.
A fresh summer watermelon salad with juicy watermelon, crunchy cucumber, and tangy feta cheese would be a mouthwatering choice. Alternatively, some light and crispy chips and guacamole would satisfy any salty cravings.
There is no need to store this tasty drink as it comes together so quickly.
IN THE FRIDGE: This fun cocktail needs to be enjoyed immediately. It won’t keep for any length of time in the fridge.
