6 Crazy Creative Drink Recipes To Try For Your Next Girls Night In

When summer first started, all I wanted to do was be outside. I would spend weekends walking around doing literally nothing just so I didn’t have to be indoors. But now we’re halfway through July, and as much as I love the sun, it’s starting to get pretty unbearable out there. Temps officially hit 90 in NYC and the humidity is getting out of control. Plus, it doesn’t even really cool down at night.

If you’re anything like me and looking for an excuse to stay in an air conditioned space, might I suggest throwing a girls night in? I know, I know, sounds kind of lame compared to beer gardens and outdoor bars, but it beats worrying about your frizzy hair when trying to meet a guy, right? Plus, we have a few creative cocktail recipes that should make a Friday night spent in a little more interesting. Read below for 6 totally crazy drinks that are definitely worth trying for your next girls night in…if you’re brave enough.

1. Chocolate Chip Cookie: Your favorite childhood snack in adult form.

  • 1 part(s) Pinnacle Cookie Dough Vodka
  • Shake with ice and strain into a martini glass rimmed with cocoa powder.

 

2. Latte-tini: The after hours “caffeine” boost.

  • 2 part(s) Pinnacle Whipped Vodka
  • 1 part(s) Kamora Coffee Liqueur
  • ½ part(s) DeKuyper Vanilla Liqueur
  • 2 part(s) half & half
  • Shake over ice and strain into a chilled martini glass.
  • Top with a dollop of whipped cream.

 

3. Candy Infused Vodka: Candy + alcohol, is there anything better? You can use Skittles, Starburts or Jolly Ranchers for this.

  • Separate the candy by flavor.
  • Put at least two handfuls of the candy in each bottle you use. Make sure it’s airtight.
  • Let it sit for at least 3 days, up to a few weeks max.
  • When ready to serve, pour it through a strainer to get rid of any leftover ingredients.

 

4. Atomic Apple: Think of it as a grown-up apple juice.

  • 2 part(s) Pinnacle Atomic Hot Vodka
  • 1 part(s) DeKuyper Pucker Sour Apple Schnapps
  • 1 part(s) Apple Juice
  • Rim martini glass with cinnamon-sugar.
  • Shake with ice, strain into prepared martini glass, and garnish with a cherry.

 

5. Whipped Margarita: A sweet(er) version of the tequila drink.

  • 1 part(s) Pinnacle Whipped Vodka
  • 1 part(s) Sauza tequila
  • 4 part(s) Sauza margarita mix
  • Rim glass with rock sugar.
  • Shake tequila and margarita mix with ice.
  • Pour into glass filled with ice and float with Pinnacle Whipped.

 

6. Goblet of Fire: Yes, inspired by the title of the fourth Harry Potter book. You literally light this drink on fire.

  • 1 oz Pinnacle Vodka
  • 1 oz blue curacao
  • 3 oz lemonade
  • Splash 151
  • Pinch of cinnamon
  • Light on fire.
