Thirsty Thursdays are so great with a group of your gal pals to celebrate all of your hard work throughout the week and start the initiation of the weekend fun- girls just want to have fun! That's all they really want!!!

So we all know that flamingos are classy, a little sassy and pinkspirational, right? So are these yummy drinks that will get your party started right! Grab your goodies, girlies and don't just stand there on one leg!

The Floating Flamingo
Makes 4 drinks

  • 1 lime cut into wedges
  • 6 scoops raspberry sorbet (2 per cup)
  • 1/4 bushel of mint leaves, rinsed and plucked from the stems and minced
  • 1 can of lime soda water
  • 1 cup watermelon vodka
  • Brut champagne to top glasses off with

What to do:
  • In a drink shaker, squeeze in the juice from 4 lime wedges and drop the wedges into the shaker. Add in the minced mint leaves and use a muddler to incorporate the flavors of the lime juice and mint together. 
  • Add some ice to your shaker and pour the watermelon vodka and lime soda water over the ice. Add the top of your shaker and shake well to mix.
  • Split the watermelon vodka mixture between 4 cups of your choosing, using caution not to drop in any ice. Add a fresh lime wedge into each glass.
  • Add two scoops of raspberry sorbet into each glass.
  • Top each glass with champagne and mix slightly with a straw or stirrer. (Cute straw shown below is from the $1 store!)
  • Waste away in Floating Flamingo-ville!
