Libations for Ladies: Fun and Fabulous Feminine Drinks

July 23, 2011  |  

After a hard days’ labor, having a potent drink in your hands matters most.  But when it’s time to unwind and relax, a lady should always have  drink that compliments her style and grace.

Here are a list of cute cocktail and alcoholic beverages that are not only Hot when sipped but delicious and delicate…

 

1. Drink: Tequila Sunrise

How it’s served: Poured over ice (on the rocks)

Why its worth it: The freshness of the orange tips the scale on this intoxicating beverage, which is met with a mix of tequila and other flavors that slowly rise to the top after mixing. Garnish a cherry or orange slice on the side, stir and slowly sip the contents of the tequila sunrise!

2. Drink: Strawberry Daiquiri

How it’s served: Mixed and strained into a cocktail glass

Why its worth it: The rum-based drink is coated with a blend of fresh strawberries, lime juice, and is purely for social drinkers. A tinge of sugar around the rim is used lightly to compliment the fruity flavors, which is more than you can ever ask for in an alcoholic beverage.

3. Drink: Sex on the Beach

How it’s served: Poured over ice (on the rocks)

Why it’s worth it: The decadence of the sex of the beach is like no other. Just like it’s name, the development of flavors are served with sex appeal. Peach schnapps, cranberry juice and orange juice are combined in an exotic vodka drink that you can savor on your day off.

4. Drink: Apple Martini

How it’s served: Shaken, strained and served into a cocktail glass

Why it’s worth it: You can sample the best of both worlds: sweet and sour! The sour apple and vodka are a nice duo on the palate. Plus, you can’t escape the mellow green color which accentuates the entire glass, half-filled with apple juice and a cherry on top.

5. Drink: Frozen Margarita

How it’s served: Blended and poured into glass (frozen)

Why it’s worth it: It’s the weekend, and the crushed ice experience is a nice rendition to the tequila and lime juice. In all, they are revamped into a frothy mixture of perfection.

6. Drink: Wine Cooler

How it’s served: Cooled, ready for drinking

Why it’s worth it: Wines come in different variations. But the type of drink that primarily caters to women are wine coolers. Seagrams, Smirnoff or Mike’s Hard Lemonade are refreshing for it’s semi-fruity or lemonade flavor or much less alcohol content. It’s a hot grab on your day off!

7. Drink: Champagne

How it’s served: Cooled, served when ready

Why it’s worth it: It pales in comparison to the frozen margarita stylistically, but its fun for its sparkling mild flavor which is perfect for any time of the day, rain or shine. It’s even used as a party favor for an evening out with friends.

8. Drink: Berry Sangria

How it’s served: Shake and strain into glass

Why it’s worth it: The berry concoction delivers one of the best that liquor has to offer with a fancied splash of grapes, berries, oranges and some apples as a garnish. With this, you can forget about your worries in one sitting.
