Girls Night is a sacred tradition that only deserves the fruitiest most excellent drinks. These drinks will get you through the drunk texting or the general small talk.
1. Peach Martini
This may have a few more ingredients than a bottle of wine but you won’t regret it.
- 2 ounces vanilla vodka
- 1-ounce Peach Schnapps
- 2 ounces peach nectar
- 1/2-ounce fresh lime juice
- Ice cubes
- Peach slice, for garnish
The garnish is optional, mix ingredients in a pitcher then pour over a chilled martini glass. Viola, perfection.
2. Sex in the Driveway
Honestly, I mostly picked this one because of the name. But as you will see peach schnapps is a constant reminder and if you are still recovering from prom leave that out.
- 1-ounce Peach Schnapps
- 1 ounce blue Curaçao
- 2 ounces of Vodka
- Sprite about 6 ounces
- Crushed ice
Shaken or stirred.
3. Raspberry Cosmos
- 4 ounces Smirnoff raspberry vodka, chilled in the freezer
- 1 fluid ounce triple sec
- 1 fresh lime juice
- 3 ounces cranberry juice
- 3 ounces raspberry juice
- 2 cups frozen raspberries
Put all ingredients into a shaker add as much ice as you can and give a good shake. Pour straight up or over ice. Garnish with lime slices and frozen raspberries which helps keep it chilled.
4. Girl Power Shot
This one is a great “I just got dumped’ drink. Mainly because I don’t think that this classifies as a drink considering it is a shooter. But after a few of these, you really won’t care who dumped you.
- 1/2 strawberry liqueur
- 1/4 raspberry liqueur
- 1/4 peach schnapps
Pour into a glittery shot glass that just screams GIRL POWER!
5. Princess Shot
- 1/2 shot of vodka
- 1/4 shot of watermelon pucker
- 1/4 shot of whiskey sour
Combine and enjoy!
6. Pink Fizzy
This drink is excellent for a summer girls night. Not a lot of ingredients, fizzy, cold, and lemonade. But if you happen to be watching New Girl by yourself in your room, this is also a great solo endeavor.
- 1 – 750ml bottle of Sutter Home White Zinfandel
- 2 – 12 oz. cans of pink lemonade
- 2 – 12 oz. cans of lemon-lime soda
7. Fruit Punch
- 1 cup fruit punch
- 1 cup sprite
- 1 cup rose
This is an easy go-to summer drink. Fruit punch really can be any fruit juice combination of your choice. I like grapefruit, orange, and lemonade. Combine all ingredients and top with a raspberry.
8. Pineapple Rum Punch
- 4 1/2 cups of pineapple juice
- 1 1/2 cups of orange juice
- 1 cup of peach mango juice
- 2 cups of your favorite rum (Captain Morgan spiced)
- 3 Tablespoons of grenadine
I would suggest rum, but that doesn’t mean that you have to use rum. Also, this taste great bubbly so add soda water or sprite.
9. Dirty Shirley Shots
Well hello, Shirley! These sure are a kick in the pants. This would be great for a bachelorette party.
- 1-ounce vodka
- 0.5 ounce liquid from a jar of Ole Smoky Tennessee Moonshine Cherries
- 0.5-ounce grenadine
Pour into your favorite shot glass, mine happens to be an alligator. She is large.
10. Pink Lady
This is not necessarily the girls night drink that you would make for a Saturday night out. If you are expecting some company or have an event, this is a very sophisticated drink.
- 1 1/2 ounces of Gin
- 1/2 ounce applejack
- 1/2 ounce lemon juice, preferably fresh
- 1 egg white
- 1/5 ounce (or a couple of dashes) of grenadine
Shake ingredients thoroughly then top with a cherry. Make sure that egg white is combined. Pour over ice.
11. Island Breeze
- 1 1/2 parts Malibu Coconut
- 1 part pineapple juice
- 1/2 part cranberry juice
- 1 part peach schnapps
The schnapps that is recommended for this drink is the Hiram Walker Peach Schnapps. This again is a shake and serve over ice drink. Simple and delicious.
12. Basil Lemon Drop
- 6 fresh basil leaves
- 3cups vodka
- 1 1/2cups lemon juice
- 1 1/2cups simple syrup
- Ice cubes
For this drink you add all the ingredients then you muddle the basil. If you need to make simple syrup boil water, then add sugar. It is a one to one ratio for the water and sugar.
13. Black Beauty
- 2 ounces vodka
- 5 fresh blackberries
- ¾ ounce fresh lemon juice (1 ½ tablespoon)
- 2 teaspoons powdered erythritol
- ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
- 5 fresh mint leaves
- Soda water
Combine the vodka, blackberries, lemon juice, erythritol, black pepper, and mint leaves in a cocktail shaker. Muddle until the fruit and mint are crushed and have released their juices. Strain the drink over top of a cocktail glass with ice. Top with soda water and garnish with blackberries and a fresh mint leaf.
