Colorful and Creative Rainbow Drink Recipes
Rainbow: Homemade Margarita Mix
Bright idea: Create a BYOM (build your own margarita) bar for your next party! Our customizable recipe starts with real fruit, like mangoes, strawberries, or honeydew, rather than sugary syrup.
Dark Red: Whiskey Beet Cocktail
Drink your veggies! This rye whiskey drink starts with a super-simple shrub (a syrup of fruit and vinegar) that showcases blended beets, cider vinegar, sage, and maple syrup.
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.
Pink: Rosemary-Grapefruit Gin Cocktail
With fresh rosemary and grapefruit juice, this sophisticated spin on gin and juice will become a regular on your refreshment rotation.
Light Pink: Rose Cucumber Cooler
St. Germain elderflower liqueur can salvage a less-than-amazing bottle of wine. Here, a cup of the herbal aperitif elevates this rose wine punch to cocktail party level.
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.
Gold: Turmeric Tonic
Turmeric is having a moment. Stir the trendy health drink ingredient into this warm drink, and add a splash of rum—or bourbon if you're feeling like something even more buzzy.
Yellow: The Porcupine
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 beer drink its name.
Light Yellow: Lavender Lemonade
After one drink of this summery sip that features a homemade lavender-honey syrup and fresh-from-the-garden lavender sprigs, you'll feel transported to a classy cocktail bar.
Dark Green: Minty Lime Refresher
A splash of green creme de menthe adds plenty of cool flavor to these cute rum cocktails. Their pale green color makes them perfect for an outdoor party or a casual summertime evening cocktail.
Green: DIY Mojito
It's easy being green, especially when you're mixing up a batch of refreshing, minty-lime mojitos. We give you the measurements, and you pick your favorite ingredients, such as different herbs and flavored rums, so each drink is tailor-made to your tastes.
Light Green: Celery Tonic
No need to feel (quite as) guilty about indulging in a gin and tonic when it includes an ounce of fresh celery juice! Finish the drink with a lemon or lime wedge for a picture-perfect cocktail.
Blue: Mad Hatter Potion
Don’t be scared off by the vivid hue! This white wine-base drink is a tropical take on sangria, with blue curacao in addition to brandy.
Tan: Smoked Bacon Rye Sour
Bacon-lovers, rejoice: You can have your bacon and drink it, too. This smoked cocktail boasts bacon-infused rye whiskey—made by mixing the liquor with crumbled bacon—and a splash of pure maple syrup. So go ahead and get your bacon on!
Brown: Toasted S'mores Cocktails
Admit it: You've never stopped loving s'mores. Luckily, you don't have to wait for summer to indulge in the classic campfire treat. These tawny-color cocktails feature sweet chocolate liqueur, marshmallow vodka, and a splash of whipping cream for a grown-up twist on an old favorite.
Light Brown: Mexican Hot Coffee Cocktails
Coffee, coffee liqueur, and your liquor of choice (tequila, rum, and brandy) shine in this warm drink. The Mexican component comes into play with a sprinkle of cinnamon and cayenne pepper.
White: Quick Horchata Cocktail
Cinnamon, rice milk, and rum give this cocktail its warm South-of-the-Border flavors. Rim the glass with raw sugar for an extra sweet touch.
Rainbow: Fruity Ice Cubes
Freeze a batch of fruity cubes to brighten up any rum, tequila, gin, or vodka drink without watering it down.
