On Wednesdays, we wear pink. And on every other day of the week, we drink pink! Pink drinks definitely aren’t a new trend, but they are getting more and more popular. Now instead of adding food coloring to your drinks to achieve that rosy pink, you can buy a variety of pink liquors at the store.
In no particular order, here are the best pink liquors for you to try.
Código 1530 makes a delicious light pink tequila: Rosa. They take their original Blanco and all of its pure tequila goodness, then rest it for one month in uncharred Napa Cabernet French White Oak barrels. By leaving the barrels uncharred, the Rosa interacts directly with the tequila. There, they achieve the rosy pinkness in the drink, while still allowing you to taste the agave flavors and floral cabernet touches. You can buy a 750 mL bottle of Rosa for a range of prices at your local liquor store.
This pink drink list wouldn’t be complete without a mention of rosé or vodka, so here we’ll give you both! Hangar 1’s Rosé Vodka is a blend of a Calfornia rosé wine and vodka. This pink liquor will remind you of California with its light and bright pink color, and fresh rosé flavor. You’ll be able to taste both the vodka and the rosé, both sweet and acid flavors in the drink. If this sounds like the pink drink for you, consider drinking it on the rocks or in fresh cocktails. You can buy a 750 mL of the Rosé Vodka online for $32.
