I’ll have a margarita—and make it pink! A splash of cranberry juice is all you need for a pretty in pink twist on a classic margarita. This is the perfect poolside or to upgrade your next taco night.
You won’t need a cocktail shaker for this festive cocktail because this pink margarita recipe makes a pitcher’s worth of margaritas that’s perfect for any celebration.
Another margarita? I’ve got more fun and refreshing margaritas to make the most of summer flavors—try a basil margarita, pineapple margarita, or my holiday classic cranberry margarita! Looking for a delicious drink without alcohol? Try this lovely lime rickey.
Pink Margarita Recipe
Drink It All In! I love a summertime sunset—but I love it even more with a cool and refreshing cocktail. A little tart, a little sweet—these pink margaritas are one of my favorite ways to mix it up. These drinks are such a pretty color—you can make your own sunset vibes—even if you stay inside.
These are just as simple to make as a classic margarita, they just feel extra special. Great for two, and just as easy to make a batch for more friends. On their own or with a meal, in the afternoon or after the sun sets, the party of one, or backyard bash—these pink margaritas can do it all.
So next time you’re in the mood for margaritas—think pink!
