When you go out with your girlies, or on a date, and if you are at all like me- a lover of mixed drinks- you will likely be able to identify with my “struggle.” I love sweet and fruity martinis and cocktails, but sometimes, I am in places where the drink menu is a real yawn (over the weekend, I had a dinner date, and we went to a nice country bar afterwards- but all of their specialty drinks had moonshine or whiskey in them, yuck!); or, it’s just a hometown pub, and the bar is more focused on it’s beer selection than coming up with a mixed drink menu. When that happens, I often find myself unsure about what to order so I choose a boring go to such as a Malibu & Pineapple or a Dissaronno & Orange Juice.

As part of my Pinterest addiction, I have a Recipe Board where I pin tons of yummy creations, including drinks I’ve tried, and would like to try. So, here’s a post to share my pins for girly drink recipes. Next time I’m in a bar, or planning a Girl’s Night In, I may just pull up this post myself to help me decide what to order/make. Here’s a list of mixed drinks that sound delicious:
