If you have a summer baby on the way, the tropical taste of a Blue Hawaiian fits the bill for flavor and fun. The fruity taste of blue curacao, vodka, white rum, pineapple juice, and sweet-and-sour will whisk your guests away to cerulean ocean waters and white sand beaches.
Pretty Pink Gin & Tonics
The Pretty Pink Gin & Tonic is the perfect complement to your baby shower’s beautiful floral arrangements. This delicious cocktail only uses pink gin, tonic water, and lime juice. Filled with subtle herbal essences and garnished with tiny flowers, the simplicity of this Gin & Tonic will have all your guests wondering what your secret is.
Cotton Candy Champagne
Cotton Candy Champagne is the perfect choice for a sugary-sweet baby shower cocktail with a fluffy flourish. The simple ingredient list of champagne, orange liquor, and a fairy floss garnish is a breeze to put together and has a visual impact as the light-as-air topping melts away.
The Pink Lady moniker is more than a reference to the rosy hue of this gin-based creation; it’s also a shoutout to the apple variety of the same name, a flavor that features here in the form of apple brandy. Other ingredients include a squeeze of lemon for tartness, grenadine for color, and an egg white for froth. Just be sure to shake your ingredients without ice first, so the egg disperses evenly.
Baby Blue Punch
The electric blue color of this classic party punch comes from Berry Fanta, which provides a pleasant, carbonated fizz to accent the white rum and triple sec accompaniments. This recipe serves a crowd, making it lip-smackingly low-effort. Serve with orange twists for a touch of bitterness to complement the sweetness.
Sparkling Greyhound Cocktail
Your baby shower prep will be off to the races with the herbaceous and complex Sparkling Greyhound. The recipe isn’t as simple as tossing the ingredients together in a punch bowl, as it requires making honey syrup, plucking thyme leaves, and carefully straining fresh grapefruit juice. However, if you’re willing to spend a little extra time with the jigger, your guests will thank you.
Fresh Berry and Prosecco Sangria
For spring showers, Fresh Berry and Prosecco Sangria appropriately trades in a dark, wintery pinot noir base for a cheerful prosecco and club soda base. If you want a boozy boost, you can add a fruity vodka, but the sugar-muddled mixed berries are sweet enough without it. The recipe makes an entire pitcher, but you’ll need time to chill the fruit and vodka before adding the fizzy finishing touches.
Lime Sherbet Punch
This no-stress Lime Sherbet Punch accommodates a rapidly growing guest list with ease and makes for a decent mojito mocktail with a nostalgic twist. The only prep to worry about is juicing limes because the ingredients come together in a single bowl without needing to blend, muddle, or shake. Prep this punch right as your guests arrive to avoid losing the fizz from your ginger ale and creamy sherbet chill.
Fresh Fig & Lavender Spritz
Fig doesn’t often get the same mocktail love as other fruits like strawberry and pineapple, despite its subtle, elegant flavor. This spritz recipe rights that wrong with a blush pink drink drizzled with honey and citrus goodness. Thanks to the crushed lavender, it’s as aromatic as it is tasty.
Pink Vodka Lemonade
Pink lemonade is an easy choice to celebrate a bouncing baby girl. Still, you can class it up by transforming the summertime staple into a vodka punch elevated with thyme’s earthy, verdant flavor. Rather than the traditional fruity pairing of strawberry or raspberry, this recipe doubles down on tartness with cranberry.
The “Four Leaf Clover” Mimosa
Parenthood is tough, so why not welcome your little one with a drink named after a classic good luck charm? The “Four Leaf Clover” Mimosa is green goodness in a glass and irresistibly refreshing with mint, cucumber, green apple, and ginger flavors. Much prep goes into this emerald-colored cocktail, including creating a juice mixer, but a single batch can serve a small party.
Pink Grapefruit Mimosa
Grapefruit gets a sophisticated, girly glow-up when paired with sparkling wine. It’s a mouth-puckering prodigy of baby shower cocktails thanks to its unbelievably simple recipe and artisanal aesthetic to go along with the bright, citrusy flavor.
Blue Raspberry Lemonade
Store-bought blue raspberry syrup turns a simple lemonade recipe into the baby shower beverage of your dreams. It’s perfect for kid-friendly affairs or for revelers who want to skip the soda water for a fun, thematic mocktail.
Grapefruit Rosemary Sparkler
Winter showers often require an indoor venue to stave off the nipping temperatures, but a single sip of the complexly carbonated Grapefruit Rosemary Sparkler with an herbal sprig garnish is as fresh as a spring day. Sherry and brut form the foundation, while bitters complement the grapefruit twang.
Blueberry Mojito Cocktail
Blueberries are the quintessential summer flavor when they are tooth-achingly sweet and plump. The Blueberry Mojito Cocktails makes a gorgeous minty-citrus canvas to celebrate the seasonal harvest, but you can recruit a few friends to help with muddling.
Mocktails ensure mom doesn’t miss out on the fun, and the peachy keen Belly-ni is a no-hassle way to offer every attendee the opportunity to customize their drink. All you’ll need to prepare is a big pitcher of lemonade set up alongside sparkling grape juice and a variety of fruit nectars. Guests can mix and match to create their perfectly bubbly balance of sweet and tart.
The Big Surprise
Are you planning on unveiling your little one’s gender during the shower? The Big Surprise baby shower cocktails do double duty as the big reveal and icy-cold refreshments. Bring a flair for the dramatic by adding either pomegranate juice or blue curacao to a gin-based fruity concoction. Then, watch your guests’ eyes light up when your blender answers the question they’ve been dying to know the answer to.
