    • Gorgeous Rainbow Drink Recipes

      Brighten up your next party with pretty cocktails inspired by the colors of the rainbow. From pale pink to golden yellow and tropical blue, each rainbow drink brings different hues and delicious flavors to the table.

    • Red: Watermelon Margaritas

      This red-hued beauty is like summer in a glass. Frozen watermelon cubes make a fun substitute for regular ice, while a generous helping of tequila and triple sec help get the party started.

    • Dark Red: Sunset Sangria

      At the end of a long week, treat your friends -- or yourself -- to a glass of fruity red wine sangria. Pour the wine over zippy lime simple syrup to create a pretty layered sunset look.

    • Pink: Icy Cranberry Margarita

      Think pink: With a cool blend of cran-raspberry juice, melon liqueur, and tequila, these grown-up slushies put a tart twist on classic margaritas.

    • Orange: Rose Collins

      Take the classic Tom Collins to delicious new heights with help from a generous splash of rose syrup. (Yes, you read that right.) It adds a light floral flavor to each sip of this sunny vodka and Campari cocktail.

    • Yellow: The Porcupine

      One sip of this golden drink and you'll understand the buzz around beer cocktails. Pale ale and a bottle of Prosecco mix with tart pineapple juice for an irresistible party offering. The prickly pineapple wedges in each glass give the drink its name.

    • Golden Yellow: Cherry Tomato Margarita

      If a beautiful yellow tomato margarita sounds wrong, we don't want to be right. The tomatoes are muddled with a pinch of salt, then shaken with tequila and orange liqueur. A splash of simple syrup sweetens the deal.

      Editor's Tip: For a gorgeous garnish, grill a few of the tomatoes on a bamboo skewer just until blackened; add one to each glass.

    • Green: DIY Mojito
