Getting ready for Galentine’s Day (yes, it’s a thing among us “Parks and Recreation fans”)? Need a cocktail recipe for your Valentine’s Day event? Try this pink and black martini recipe: Blushing Lady martinis. A little tart, a little sweet, and totally tasty. Scale back the vodka and boost the pink grapefruit juice if you want to pump up the pink color and tart flavor.

The thing we like about this pretty little cocktail is that it’s not cloyingly sweet. Vodka with pomegranate liqueur and pink grapefruit juice makes a perfect in-between option for spring events, when we’re moving away from the warmth of winter drinks (which are great for chasing off the chill when it’s snowing outside) and not quite ready for the beach-and-bubbly creations of summer beach and BBQ concoctions (when we’re longing for something to help cool us off from the heat).

We also make these as mocktails: Swap the vodka out for lemon-lime soda, and the pomegranate liqueur for pomegranate juice (or pomegranate-grape juice). Be sure to serve this mocktail version over ice, to help keep the drink nice and cold.

Need photos of how to rim a glass like this pink and black martini? Check out our easy to follow recipe tutorial. Want to serve this as a frozen drink, rather than serve it straight up? Add all liquids into a blender, along with 1 cup of crushed ice. Blend on high until blended to desired consistency, then pour into sugar rimmed glasses and serve.
