Baby showers are one of the most exciting parts leading up to your due date, as it is the opportunity to bring friends and family together to celebrate the new little life you’ve been anxiously waiting to meet.
There’s a wide world of mixology to match the beverage to your theme, from a classic pink party punch to artisanal adult twists on lemonade.
We took the work out of researching drinks by rounding up a set of scrumptiously refreshing baby shower cocktails for your guests to enjoy.
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.
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.
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.
These baby shower cocktails are sure to impress your guests with unique flavors and cheerful colors as they gather to welcome your little bundle of joy.

I have always had a deep interest in the restaurant and bar industry. My restaurant experience began in 1997 at the age of 14 as a bus boy. By the time I turned 17 I was serving tables, and by 19 I was bartending/bar managing 6-7 nights a week.
In 2012, after a decade and a half of learning all facets of the industry, I opened my first restaurant/bar. In 2015, a second location followed, the latter being featured on The Food Network’s Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.
