Super Easy Rainbow Pride Cocktail Recipe!
Happy Pride Month friends! June is probably one of my all time favorite months of the year. The sun shines for longer, the temperatures get warmer, and we get to celebrate being gay and all the progress we have seen in the recent years. All month long there are tons of fun events throughout San Francisco, all culminating to the big Pride Parade down Market St. on Sunday the 24th. Anyone planning on going?
I know a lot of you will be hosting Pride parties this month, and so I partnered with SKYY Vodka to share a super easy and colorful Pride cocktail recipe.
Here's what you need:
- Tons of colorful fruit
- purple grapes
- simple syrup
- SKYY Vodka
One of my favorite things about SKYY Vodka is that they were actually founded in San Francisco over 25 years ago. I’m all about supporting the local brand, especially when they make some super delicious vodka and have been long-time LGBT supporters. Given their San Francisco-roots, the brand has aligned with Pride events across the country for years, and I’m excited to be a part of their San Francisco Pride activation this year. They also have a colorful blue bottle, which is totally on brand for Pride Month.
- Chop, peel and separate all the fruit
- stack the fruit in a highball glass, layer by layer, creating a rainbow effect
- Here's the order I used: grapes, blueberries, kiwi's, pineapples, oranges, and then strawberries
- Then in a shaker mix (makes two cocktails)
- 1.5 oz fresh squeezed lime juice
- 1 oz simple syrup
- 4 oz SKYY Vodka
- Shake hard with ice and strain into highball glass layered with fruit
Add a colorful straw and Voila! A delicious and refreshing Pride cocktail that looks and tastes AMAZING! And when you're finished you have an equally tasty vodka infused fruit cup. Win win!
And if you're looking for a fun upcoming Pride event, SKYY is hosting a Proudly American Pride Roller Disco on Thursday, June 21 from 8pm – 10pm at Church of 8 Wheels. Hope to see you all there.
