This Pink Elephant Cocktail has to be the prettiest, and most adored of all our festive cocktails!
A Pink Elephant Cocktail is quick and easy to throw together, And the best bit is it only requires 3 ingredients:
* pink lemonade
* a fresh lime
I’ve had a taste for cocktails of late!
This pretty pink cocktail recipe is just the latest in a long line of party tipples I’ve been mixing up to share with you as we fast approach the festive season.
Pink Cocktails: Big Flavour with a Cheeky Kick
The Pink Elephant Cocktail is frivolous and full of whimsy, whilst also having a cheeky little kick to it.
Most importantly, this pink cocktail with vodka base is really, really tasty.
Variations of Pink Elephant Cocktail recipes use a combination of vodka, lemonade and a twist of lime, cranberry juice and/or grapefruit juice.
However, rather than straight lemonade, my pink elephant cocktail recipe uses Fentimans’ rose lemonade. This is what gives it that baby pink colour. That means all you have to do is add a twist of lime juice to give it its kick.
This recipe is so quick and simple! The combination of the vodka with the sweetly scented rose lemonade and that sharp zesty lime offers a cocktail with oodles of flavour!
If you are having a party, make this cocktail in batches and then chill and serve it up in a big pitcher, poured over ice.
Aval Dor Vodka: Cornish Potato Vodka
When you make any cocktails with vodka, the quality of the vodka makes ALL the difference.
Colwith Farm Distillery’s Aval Dor Vodka is a premium ‘plough to bottle’ vodka. It is carefully produced from the finest King Edward potatoes which are grown by Colwith Farm. Colwith Farm is a fifth generation family farm which also happens to be very local to me right here in South East Cornwall!
The vodka is lovingly distilled in a state-of-the-art distillery and blended with mineral water from an aquifer (which I am reliably informed is an underground layer of water-bearing permeable rock) beneath the farm itself. The smooth and creamy flavoured Aval Dor Vodka won acclaim this year. It was named as ‘one of the best on the planet’, bringing home silver at the ‘Oscars’ of the spirits industry; the 2019 San Francisco World’s Spirits Awards.
