As PRIDE month continues, all over the country, people are showing their Pride at festivals, parades and so much more! With endless celebrations throughout the month, there’s no better way to enjoy all the fun than with a few delicious, Pride inspired cocktails.
The special edition Smirnoff “Love Wins” bottles provide the perfect splash of fun to include alongside cocktails. The 2018 bottles feature 34 real couples from around the United States and Smirnoff donating $1 per bottle made to the Human Rights Campaign. And the smooth, award-wining taste and quality of Smirnoff No.21 inside each bottle is the perfect base for any (e)quality cocktail.
Though the cocktail possibilities are infinite, we wanted to share a few of our faves that include Smirnoff and Smirnoff ICE! See below for some colorful, Insta-ready recipes that will add an extra flare to any and all plans for Pride this month.
The Pride Rainbow Slushie
6 packets flavored drink powder (in red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple)
9 cups ice cubes
¼ cup sugar
3 oz Smirnoff No. 21 Love Wins Vodka
In a small bowl, add 1 teaspoons of the red colored powder. Repeat with each colored powder, using a separate bowl for each color. Add the ice to a large, high-powered blender, followed by the sugar and Smirnoff Vodka. Blend until a slush forms, then spoon out equal portions into the bowls with the colored powder. Stir each bowl gently, but quickly, then spoon into glasses to form a rainbow and enjoy responsibly!
