When it comes to celebrating your fabulous self, there’s nothing quite like getting together with your BFFs for a bangin’ Galentine’s Day party — complete with your fave chick flicks, Galentine’s Day DIYs and, of course, loads of awesomely pink V-Day cocktails. The good news is you don’t have to stick with the obvious Cosmopolitan (Sex and the City style) to enjoy a blush libation. From champagne poured over cotton candy to fizzy rose-scented tonics, these 13 pink cocktails will make you and your besties say “cheers to friendship!”


1. Blood Orange French 75: The French 75 is just about as classy of a cocktail as they come. Traditionally with lemon, champagne and gin, this one gets an unexpectedly sweet flavor from blood orange. (via Cookie and Kate)


2. The Pink Mojo: The subtle pink hue of this drink is from a cranberry juice and grenadine-based pink lemonade. If you’re looking for a way to save time, you can totally use store-bought pink lemonade instead of making it fresh. Muddle some mint, add the rum and lemonade and you’re GTG.

3. Cotton Candy Champagne Cocktail: Anything from Lauren Conrad is obviously going to be an elegant and show-stopping winner. Plus, it doesn’t get much simpler than pouring champagne over cotton candy — no cocktail shaker needed. (via Lauren Conrad)


4. Cupid’s Pink Arrow: With a cutesy name like that, this cocktail is a must for any Galentine’s Day party. Make a huge batch so you can spend more time catching up and less time bartending. (via No Spoon Necessary)


5. Pink Mojito: Even though it’s the dead of winter, you can still pretend like you’re on a girls-only island getaway. Add a beachy rom-com to your Netflix queue and chill without a care in the world. (via Supergolden Bakes)

6. Pink Prickly Pear Margaritas: Nothing sounds better than sharing a huge plate of nachos with guac and a giant pitcher of margaritas with your best friends. Lucky for you, you can buy prickly pear syrup at most liquor stores for a unique twist on the classic. (via Sweets to Impress)


7. Rhubarb Basil Cocktail: If you’re a fan of mojitos, you’re definitely going to dig this cocktail. The fresh basil is such a refreshing flavor alongside the tart rhubarb. Don’t stress if you can’t find fresh rhubarb right now — frozen would work just fine. (via The Kitchn)

rose fizz

8. Rose Water Cointreau Fizz: Roses and Valentine’s Day go together like Kim and Kanye. The subtle rose water essence of this sparkling cocktail will be such a special treat that your friends will so appreciate. (via A Pair and a Spare)


9. Pink Salty Dog: This salty dog is vodka and grapefruit’s answer to the margarita. You can try it blended OR on the rocks. (via Fab Fatale)


10. Spiked Pink Lemonade: If you’re in the market for a cocktail that won’t ruin your New Year’s Resolution, this pink lemonade is your best bet. Since it’s spiked with Skinny Girl Vodka and sweetened with stevia, you may have a little extra room for a few chocolates. (via What’s Gaby Cooking)


11. Strawberry Ginger Pink Lemonade Cocktail: This cocktail uses homemade strawberry vodka to infuse delicious fresh flavor into every sip. Try making each of your guests their own bottle of strawberry vodka to take home as a gift. (via Healthy Seasonal Recipes)


12. Thyme and Pink Grapefruit Greyhounds: If you opt for a Galentine’s Day brunch, this light and refreshing cocktail is the one to go for. The elegant herbal touch of thyme is a perfect complement to the grapefruit. (via Freut Cake)

Watermelon Marg

13. Watermelon Margarita (on the Rocks): Getting in the kitchen and making your own cocktails with your besties is one of the best bonding activities you can do. Plus, you can take out some major ex-aggression by muddling the watermelon. (via Beckham and Belle)
