3 Pink Vodka Drink Recipes, Because Who Doesn’t Like Pink Drinks!?

Pink doesn’t pull its punches—it’s a powerful hue that makes a statement wherever you see it, whether that’s on a pair of hot pink stilettos or poured into a curvaceous cocktail glass. Yes, pink is a particularly delicious shade for cocktails. Plus, it’s just plain pretty, and who doesn’t love a pretty drink?

Here are some frozen spins on fun and creative pink-hued cocktails recipes using vodka ice pops for when you can’t help but think pink.  

Pink cocktail

#1 Frozen Cosmopolitan 

We might as well start with the icon. Since at least the 1990s, the Cosmopolitan has been one of the most famous martini variations for its sweet and pink twist on the cocktail. To get started, all you need are a little whimsy and the following ingredients: 


Here’s how to mix this all-star of pink vodka drinks all together:

  1. In a martini shaker, mix the vodka, SLIQ Spirited Ice frozen cocktail pop, Cointreau, and lime juice. If necessary, you can use a spoon to help the mixing along.
  2. Serve your frozen Cosmos in chilled martini glasses. A lime wedge makes for a classic garnish. You can also add a little flair with a grapefruit wedge or a few cranberries on a toothpick.

Quick Tip

When adding SLIQ Spirited Ice frozen cocktail pops to your cocktails, be sure not to over mix. The appeal of a frozen drink is its full, thick texture as much as its temperature, so aim for smooth but not runny when working with alcohol ice pops

#2 Pink Vodka Frozen Lemonade

If there’s any beverage, alcoholic or otherwise, that gives the Cosmo a run for its money where pink is concerned, it’s got to be pink lemonade and similar citrus vodka drinks. When you add vodka to the mix, you’ve got a satisfying pink drink for any occasion, but this pink lemonade cocktail is especially perfect for a baby shower.

For our frozen version of Pink Vodka Lemonade, you’ll need:

The steps to this classic pink drink are as easy as 1, 2, and 3:

#3 Frozen Salty Dog

A traditional Salty Dog is made with gin and served straight up. But we’re mixing things up and taking this pink pup to a whole new level with a frozen twist that substitutes vodka for gin. Pro Tip: this one doubles as a delicious Valentine cocktail recipe

Start by gathering your ingredients. For this recipe, you’ll need:

To make one of our favorite pink cocktails with vodka, follow these steps:

  1. Ready your garnish. The garnish might be the last thing you add to your cocktail, but sometimes it’s a good place to start preparing. On a small plate, mix the kosher salt and grapefruit zest. For now, set it aside.
  2. Use a martini shaker or blender to combine the vodka, SLIQ Spirited Ice frozen cocktail pop, and grapefruit juice. 
  3. Wet the rim of a highball glass and twirl it through the salt-zest mixture. Then, pour your cocktail. Top it off with a slice of grapefruit to complete the outfit and sip away.

Quick Tip

In the mood for something other than vodka? Since we’re already making substitutions with this recipe, try using SLIQ’s Agave Spirit Strawberry Margarita pop instead. Just make sure you also switch out the vodka for tequila!
