Making girly cocktails is a fantastic way to add some sparkle, fun, and flavor to any gathering.
Whether you’re hosting a girls’ night in, celebrating a special occasion, or just want something tasty to sip on while catching up with friends, the drinks in this article are sure to hit the spot.
And, of course, guys can enjoy what some may consider “girly cocktails” as well!
Here’s a list of some of the best girly cocktails.
Peachy Keen Cocktail
The Peachy Keen Cocktail incorporates peach nectar for a delightful mix of sweet and sour notes.
I love bubbly, citrusy beverages in the spring or summer, as it's delightfully refreshing. It also has a bright and inviting dark peach color.
Mojito is one of my favorite classic cocktails because I can enjoy it any time of year. The lime juice and club soda combination are refreshing in the spring and summer, but the minty flavor makes it agreeable in the fall and winter as well.
A Mojito drink is the perfect girly cocktail for a big party because it's one almost everyone enjoys.
I can drink Rosé all day, but it gets even better when you mix in a few additional ingredients, such as lemons and grapefruit, to create a tart, sweet Rosé Punch!
This recipe calls for adding edible flowers to the mix for a truly girly and festive look - I approve.
Lemon Drop Martini
A Lemon Drop Martini is a bright girly cocktail that's hard to resist.
This drink combines vodka, Cointreau, and freshly squeezed lemon juice for a tart but a sweet and delightful yellow beverage.
Sex on the Beach
Sex on the Beach is a fun drink that all my friends enjoy ordering, in part because of its cheeky name but mostly because of its juicy berry and peach flavors that are perfect for the summer drink.
If you want to make them yourself for a daytime girls' hangout, this recipe is easy to follow and has an ultra-satisfying result.
My favorite aspect of the Blue Hawaiian cocktail is its vibrant appearance. It's a gorgeous sea-blue color that'll transport you to a vacation mindset regardless of where you're drinking it.
Add a pineapple slice and Maraschino cherry on top, and you're good to go.
Sex in the Driveway Cocktail
Sex in the Driveway is similar to Sex on the Beach because it incorporates both vodka and peach flavors.
However, it has an edgier appearance due to Blue Curaçao and is more suitable for big parties. You can make a huge punch bowl of it all at once, and it'll look great at the center of the table.
On the other hand, a Cosmopolitan is not a drink you should be serving in a big bowl with a ladle, but rather one you should serve in a martini class.
It's a delicious class drink that has stood the test of time, perhaps due to its simplicity. It's like an elevated cranberry vodka due to the addition of lime juice and orange-flavored triple sec.
Strawberry Prosecco Smash
Bubbly drinks are perfect for celebrating big events and exciting wins, and the Strawberry Prosecco Smash can help you do just that.
This gorgeous, pink, semi-frothy drink looks like a dream and tastes like one too. Don't forget to garnish with thyme for the most aesthetically-appealing finish.
Tropical Mermaid Lemonade
Whether you're in an island Airbnb or simply having friends over in your urban apartment, you can get into vacation mode with this Tropical Mermaid Lemonade.
The alcohol base is white rum, which instantly gets me in the mood to relax. The lemonade sweetens things up, and Blue Curaçao makes the drink appealing to look at.
The Rosemary Grapefruit Refresher
If you love the flavor combination of evergreen, pine, sage, and citrus, you'll admire this Rosemary Grapefruit Refresher.
As its name suggests, it's one of the most refreshing drinks to sip on in the middle of a hot summer day, making it perfect for backyard barbecues or Sunday outdoor brunches.
Sparkling Blood Orange Winter Cocktail
Even though it's winter, you don't have to be stuck with drab and boring drinks.
The Sparkling Blood Orange Winter Cocktail is a festive and flavorful option that you can make for your holiday party and ensure everyone will thoroughly enjoy.
Who doesn't love a Mimosa for brunch? This recipe suggests adding in equal parts orange juice and champagne.
But I like leaving out each separate beverage and allowing my friends to pour their own for the ratio they most enjoy, whether it's heavier on the champagne or heavier on the fresh OJ.
Pink Lemonade Cocktail
The classic, well-loved Pink Lemonade is another fruity and bubbly combination that'll have you feeling fancy, whether it's brunch time or late at night.
The cranberry juice and lime give the drink its iconic flavor and bright, cheerful look, while the Malibu rum pulls it all together and turns it from a kid's favorite to an adult delight.
A Pina Colada is the perfect refreshing beverage to enjoy when you're feeling tropical and dreaming of the ocean breeze.
The combination of coconut and pineapple is a unique delight that has all my favorite characteristics in a drink; it's creamy, refreshing, sweet but not too sweet, and so delicious.
The Malibu Sunset is an undeniable classic and perfect for a summery afternoon.
Like a Pina Colada, a Malibu Sunset is not overly sweet due to the coconut flavor included and is the perfect drink to enjoy as the sun sets and your day starts to wind down.
Pink Starburst Shots
Starbursts are undoubtedly one of my favorite candies, so I love making these Pink Starburst Shots for my friends on the weekends.
You don't put real starbursts in it, as the candy flavor comes from watermelon puckers and a sweet & sour mix, but you can use starbursts as a garnish.
With its crisp and tart flavor and gorgeous green hue, an Apple Martini is the epitome of a fun yet sophisticated drink, perfect for making for intimate weekend gatherings.
The combination of vodka and green apple schnapps creates a unique, pucker-worthy taste that's hard to forget.
Long Island Iced Tea
A Long Island Iced Tea combines multiple liquors in one cup, including vodka, rum, tequila, and gin, along with triple sec.
This heavy amount of alcohol makes some people wary, but because it has everything, it's not as strong-tasting as you might assume, especially with the help of sour mix and cola to balance things out.
Best Strawberry Daiquiri
Strawberry Daiquiris are my favorite among summertime girly cocktails because they are usually frozen, which helps cool things down and sweeten things up simultaneously.
It's a slushy yet light tropical beverage that will have you feeling like you're on a beach vacation, even if you're just relaxing in your own backyard.
Pink Señorita Tequila Cocktail
We all know and love the classic vodka Cranberry, but what about combining cranberry juice with tequila instead?
That's what you get in this Pink Señorita Tequila Cocktail, which is just as delightful as it sounds. Its soft pink appearance, coupled with a bright green mint leaf as a garnish, is sure to invite people over to the drink table at your next event.
A Margarita is a popular and pleasurable drink that everyone should try at least once, regardless of their gender.
It's one of the most popular choices when it comes to tequila cocktails, and what I love about it is that the classic version is delicious, but you can make plenty of variations - strawberry margarita, mango margarita, passion fruit margarita, etc.
If you're hoping to stir up a delicious, super-sweet cocktail to serve post-dinner, you can't go wrong with a Chocolate Martini.
This chocolatey cocktail is the perfect way to end the weekend on a delectable note!
Mai Tais are a classic tiki cocktail and a must-try for any rum enthusiast. It combines a variety of flavors, including orange, lime, mint, and almond, which provides a dynamic, intriguing taste with each sip.
I recommend drinking these while sitting on the beach or by the pool with your favorite girlfriends.
Washington Apple Martini
Last but not least is a Washington Apple Martini, another dynamic drink that combines the oaky, spicy notes of whiskey with the sweet-tart taste of apples.
This recipe specifically calls for Canadian whiskey for the specific taste, but you can take your pick between sour apple schnapps, apple brandy, or apple liqueur.
The best girly cocktails come in all sorts of flavors and colors – from bright pink cosmos to frothy blue margaritas – so there’s something for everyone!
Plus, they taste amazing. So, choose your favorite and get ready for some girly cocktail-making.
