Pink Squirrel Cocktail

Pink Squirrel Cocktail

Once a very popular drink priced for its fun and cute appearance, the pink squirrel cocktail features decadent flavors of almond and chocolate. The beautiful color came from crème de noyaux (an alFmond-flavored crème liqueur) mixed with heavy cream. In doing so, the cocktail was then given its adorable baby pink color.

Crème de noyaux is hard to spot in grocery stores though. But, you can substitute it with a mix of amaretto liqueur and grenadine to duplicate the almond flavor and pretty color. So if you want a light and delicate drink that’s a good conversation starter, then give the pink squirrel a try.

Giggle Juice

Why is it named giggle juice, you ask? The best explanation we can come up with is that it combines a combination of ingredients that incredibly goes well together. To start, it has Moscato. On its own, it is sweet with flavors that highlight peaches and orange blossoms. And then it also has pink lemonade and lemon-lime soda that suits Moscato well. To cap it all off, it’s spiked with vodka that balances all the flavors down to just the right sweetness. You can serve this pale pink cocktail over ice and then add strawberry slices and lemon wedges for an even prettier presentation.

Salty Dog Cocktail Recipe

Salty Dog Cocktail

Considered a modern version of the Greyhound cocktail (a cocktail made with a mix of gin or vodka and grapefruit juice), the salty dog drink only has the addition of a salted rim glass. With that, you’d think that the salted rim poses barely any difference, but it tones down the very distinct bitter and tart flavor note of the grapefruit juice. In other words, it brings the whole glass together.
