Lavanda Most girls love flowers every now and then, especially in a cocktail. Pluck a few sprigs of lavender, and boil it down to create a lavender-infused syrup. Mix it with gin and bubbly prosecco over ice. This sweet nectar is especially great for garden parties.
Bailey’s Chocolatini There are moments when a woman needs chocolate and others that call for a drink. Then there are the days where she needs both. Simply mix Bailey’s Irish Cream, Smirnoff vodka and Godiva Chocolate Liqueur in a glass and enjoy.
Pink Torpedoes This recipe is a crowd pleaser. Chill a mixture of vodka, strawberries and sugar over night. In the morning, strain out the good stuff, give it a splash of limoncello and a sparkle of champagne. The result is a punch perfect for ladies’ night.
Blue Agave Sipper Save this one for football season. This drink mixes tequila with blue curaçao, lime juice and agave to show off Seahawks blue with a green lime garnish. Cheers to the 12th woman!
Coconut Water Colada Get the benefits of coconut water with a little kick. Rum shaken with coconut milk and coconut water is a soothing alternative to ultra-sweet tropical drinks, while still staying inspired by distant island locations.
