Without great drinks, you simply can't have a great bachelorette party.
Even assuming you're a teetotaler, you still need to have a beverage that reflects your brides' unique personality and image. Maybe she's a tomboy (whiskey), maybe she's a diva (raspberry vodka). Whatever it is that makes her unique, here are 9 drinks that you need to serve to celebrate your bride's last days as a single lady.
1. The Cosmo
The queen of all lady drinks is the Cosmopolitan. Classy, sweet and guaranteed to throw a punch. You can't go wrong with serving Cosmos at your bachelorette party. Perfect Cosmo recipe.
2. Mango Jalapeno Margarita
Got a bride who's got a wild, spicy side? Whip up a bunch of these and the party will start immediately! Mango Jalepeno Margarita recipe
3. Cherry gimlet
Mix up some vodka, lime juice and cherry liquor (and throw in a couple maraschino cherries), and you've got yourself a simple yet elegant drink that goes perfect with tiaras and inappropriate swizzle sticks. Cherry gimlet recipe.
4. Dirty Mojito
This powerful tropical drink is perfect for summer nights (or recreating summer nights), and is just a bit darker and naughtier than its popular cousin. It uses gold rum, raw sugar (or simple syrup), club soda lime and mint. All aboard for tropic bachelorette party fun! Dirty Mojito recipe.
5. Purple Nurple
We want to make sure that shots take their rightful place on a list of bachelorette party drinks. Throw in some coconut rum, triple sec, Blue Curacao liqueur and a splash of cranberry juice and you've got yourself a lady's lady shot. Purple Nurple recipe.
6. Sex on the Beach
Going old school with this one (your parents were probably drinking this when you were conceived). The experts at the International Bartenders Association Archers lists insist that this drink has Peach Schnapps, Smirnoff No. 21 Vodka, orange juice and cranberry juice, shaken together and then strained into a Highball glass. Not a bad way to get your vitamin C. Sex On The Beach recipe.
7. Blushing Bride
Here's exactly how you start your bridal party off right — with a a champagne cocktail made with peach schnapps and grenadine. Serve in long-stem champagne glasses and garnish with a cherry. Make this one a virgin by using non-alcoholic sparkling wine instead of champaign. Blushing Bride recipe.
8. Pineapple Whiskey Sour
Here's a drink for your whiskey girl, but still sweet enough that everyone will enjoy. And it's really simple: pineapple juice, lemon juice and a shot of your favorite whiskey. Pineapple Whiskey Sour.
9. The Bitter Devil
Beer cocktails are all the rage, and it seems to us that drinking a cocktail known as "The Bitter Devil" may be just the drink to end the night on (unless you count Gatorade and a couple of ibuprofen). Bitter Devil Recipe.
