Barbie Cocktail

Posted on

If Barbie had her way, she’d lounge outside her dream house, sipping cocktails all day. Lucky her! But what about us? Well, we’re always up for a cocktail or mocktail, whether it’s pink or rainbow-colored—just slide it our way. And we reckon if Barbie had to pick between booze or bubbles, she might go for both, depending on her mood. Imagine a frothy pink, citrusy, fizzy drink that’s perfect for chilling in the backyard with pals or hosting a summer pool bash. It’s kind of like a Pink Lady cocktail but with a tequila kick and a splash of club soda for that bubbly touch.

Pro Tips:

  • No orange-flavored tequila? No problem! You can swap it for any clear flavored liqueur; raspberry would work a treat.
  • Club soda is a bit saltier than seltzer. You can use either in this drink.
  • Want that Barbie-approved sparkle? Sprinkle pink, gold, and white sprinkles or edible glitter around the glass rim. You can grab edible gold glitter online.
  • We fancy using a coupe glass, but a martini or rocks glass will do just fine.

This drink is super easy to prep ahead of time. Just hold off adding the egg white until you’re ready to serve.
