Ever been to the bar and someone is surprised that you ordered Scotch instead of one of the girliest drinks they serve?
After reading this list, though annoyed, you won’t be surprised to hear that phrase. Here are 12 of the girliest drinks you can order at a bar.
1. Lemon Meringue Martinis
This martini is deemed one of the girliest drinks as it is both sweet and sour. It includes the following: yellow meringues, limoncello liqueur, vanilla vodka, lemonade, and graham crackers.
Martinis, in general, are considered some of the girliest drinks ever. This is because they are typically dressed with fruit, salt linings, or graham cracker lining garnishments.
If you order one of these, you will be safe from hearing that all too familiar phrase.
2. Frozen Daiquiris
If you are familiar with some of the girliest drinks offered at bars, then you are not surprised to see the frozen daiquiris on this list. This drink is offered in a wide variety of fruity flavors, and sometimes chocolate. It is a rum-base drink and well known for its sweetness.
All you need is some ice, lime juice, sugar, rum, and the fruit of your choosing. Also, include some fresh fruit embellishments to top it off.
If hard liquor just isn’t your thing, try a Sangria. It is deemed one of the girliest drinks as it is made with wine, red or white. Though this is more of a glorified glass of wine.
The Sangria is served as a punch with fruit mixed directly into it. It is served better with red wine, but white wine is also a good choice.
It is composed of red or white wine and any fruit and fruit juice of your liking. This punch will look phenomenal on the table as it is being served.
4. Sex On The Beach
Another of the girliest drinks offered at bars include the Sex on the Beach. It is a vodka-based drink mixed with Chambord, peach schnapps, orange juice, and cranberry juice. It is served in a high glass on the rocks.
This drink provides a fruity taste, but tart enough for it not to be deemed sweet. A beautifully crafted beverage for any lady that walks into the bar.
5. Fresh Pineapple Margarita
Margaritas, also one of the girliest drinks instantly deemed suitable for a female. These drinks have a tequila base, which provides a bittersweet taste.
There are many variations to Margaritas but for the sake of time, I will only share with you the recipe for the Fresh Pineapple Margarita. It is composed of lime juice, orange liqueur, simple syrup, or honey, fresh pineapple chunks, and, of course, tequila. It can be served with a salt and lime garnish if desired.
Mimosas are considered one of the girliest drinks because it consists of a champagne base. This cocktail can be served at various events, such as bridal showers, brunch and, of course, at bars.
One of the most well-known recipes for a Mimosa includes the following: Champagne, orange sherbert, orange juice, and an orange slice garnish.
The scenic appeal to this drink is quite pleasing and the taste is something magnificent.
7. Whiskey Sour
The Whiskey Sour is composed of the following: bourbon, lemon juice, simple syrup, and an orange wheel garnish. Just enough sweetness to get you to the finish line.
It is sometimes made with a little bit of egg white, with this addition it is widely called the Boston Sour. If you add a spoonful of red wine floating on top, it is called the New York Sour.
This drink has a few variations for varying tastes. Don’t be afraid to try one of these variations for an awesome experience.
8. Long Island Iced Tea
Don’t le the name of this drink fool you. This drink packs quite a punch. The Long Island Iced Tea typically consists of the following: vodka, tequila, light rum, triple sec, gin, and some cola. The cola simply gives the beverage the same hue of classic iced tea.
This drink is one of the most popular girliest drinks offered at a bar.
9. Blue Hawaiian
If you like Pina Coladas, this drink will be perfect for you! It is made with creme de coconut, pineapple juice, white rum, and blue curacao.
You can get this drink at any bar you stop at. You will enjoy the light fruit taste combined with the alcohol. This drink goes far beyond its colorful, festive appeal.
Ever seen ‘Sex and the City’? If you have, you will recognize this beverage as Carrie’s favorite drink to order. Its name is shortened to Cosmo at bars. It is composed of the following ingredients: cranberry juice, lime juice, triple sec and vodka.
Just another of the girliest drinks with a fruity twist to it. You have to try this one!
One of the most simple, girliest drinks to ever hit the bar counter. It is made up of the following ingredients: lime juice, mint, club soda, and white rum. This drink has a smooth and cool taste. One heck of a drink if you ask me.
The next time you go to the bar, try something different. Say, the Mojito.
12. Mai Tai
The Tahitian name means “Out of this World”. This tasty drink is composed of the following: pineapple juice, lime juice, orange juice, grenadine, white and dark rum.
This colorful drink will be the highlight of your night after just one sip. Can’t wait to try it huh?!
Have you noticed a theme with the girly drinks listed above? If you have, you would notice that ‘girly drinks’ are deemed as such because of their colorfulness, sweet taste, and pleasant garnishments.
This list of girliest drinks you can order at a bar is definitely incomplete. Why don’t you help the world out by naming a few of the girliest drinks you have ordered at a bar. I’m looking forward to seeing what you will add.
