For those of you who are pinners (my pinterest term for all of us that pin, haha) on Pinterest, you've all seen the ah-maze-ing photos of some of these cocktails, food items, clothes........the list goes on and on. Well I along with many of you assume that these photos (for the most part) are totally legit.......I mean, why wouldn't they be, right? That opens up the doorway for tonight's cocktail, a Barbie Cocktail.
On Pinterest there was this beautiful photo of this drink that was called Barbie Cocktail, I knew I had to eventually try it!
WOW, what an amazing looking drink! That color is amazing too. So I decided to try it out for Day 9 of my year of cocktails.....actually a friend of mine had asked if I'd do it sooner then later please, so I decided to do as she asked and do it now while it's still fresh on all of the pinners minds. I checked out the ingredients and couldn't figure out how on Earth they got it to be that color of a neon pink......but hoped that I'd make it and it would magically become the amazing color I saw in the photo. Oh and check out those...bubbles?? Wait a minute.......
Here is the recipe for a Barbie cocktail:
1 shot Malibu rum
1 shot vodka
1 shot cranberry juice
1 shot orange juice
In a shaker put add about 6 ice cubes (oh no I'm becoming more like my husband as I don't give you an exact amount of ice cubes to put in!), Malibu rum, vodka, cranberry juice and orange juice. Give it a good shaking and then pour it into your glass through the strainer in your shaker, and...........enjoy? or not.
As you can see I gave tonight's cocktail 2 shots out of 5. I was feeling generous. In my honest opinion, the fact that you put the same about of Malibu rum as vodka into this cocktail makes me raise my eyebrow (The Rock-style).
Here is a photo of the end result:

You be the judge of what you see here and on other websites. Don't always believe what you see, hear, etc. Thank you for pulling up a bar stool for my first week plus a couple days of my Year of Cocktails!! See you tomorrow!!
