Easy Pretty In Pink Punch

Earlier this week I made Pretty in Pink Punch which was oh so sweet and refreshing! It would be perfect for serving at a shower (wedding or baby) or just as a cold drink to enjoy in the sun. If you wanted to give it a little kick with some alcohol, add some white rum. Or vodka! It is so quick and straightforward to make with only four essential ingredients.

Here are even more refreshing drinks to make

  • Cranberry Mint Mocktail | Bubbly, fresh and a light drink to sip on. I generally make this in the fall and winter months, cause cranberry fits the season. But, if you are a fan of cranberry give it a try. 
  • Orange Julius | This drink right here is a tried and true. The classic and well known Orange Julius is sweet, tangy, and leaves you reaching for one more sip. Great way to cool down on a hot summer day. 
  • Passionate Sangria Recipe | This sangria takes a handful of ingredients to make, to whip up a pitcher. Serve in glasses and sip and enjoy your evening chatting with family or friends.

What Alcohol Do You Use for Pretty in Pink Punch

For this recipe, I used Bacardi Superior White Rum. It offers a milder flavor than other liquors. It won’t add an extra flavor to the drink, like something more profound in flavor. I would recommend using any brand of your favorite white rum for this recipe. 

Can I Make This Pretty in Pink Punch Non-Alcoholic

Yes! Just leave the rum out of the recipe, and mix up the lemonade and strawberry concentrates with the water and ice. It will make it a non-alcoholic version that anyone can enjoy.

How do you make Pretty in Pink Punch

Start by thawing your pink lemonade concentrate and the daiquiri concentrate. Once both are thawed, in a blender toss in all the ingredients. The water is optional, and it will help lessen the sweetness of the drink. So if you want, blend it up until smooth and creamy, try it, and if too sweet then slowly mix in the water. 

Pour into a glass and garnish with fresh strawberries and raspberries and serve. 

Where Do I Find the Frozen Concentrates 

Look in the freezer section in your grocery store. My concentrates were next to frozen concentrated juices and whipped topping. If you can’t find it ask a grocer to help you look for them.

Can I Use Regular Lemonade vs. Pink Lemonade 

You very well could reach for a regular frozen lemonade concentrate over pink lemonade. It will offer a more tart and tangy aspect, but it should still work well with the daiquiri mix. 

What To Serve With Pretty in Pink Punch

You can serve up this drink any time of day. If you are hosting a cookout and want to pair it next to grilled burgers or steaks, go for it. Or maybe you want to opt for a lighter dish and serve finger foods and appetizers. This pink punch is excellent for any meal or appetizer pairing. 

You could also make yourself a drink to relax and kick back after a long day at work. 

Serve Pretty in Pink Punch Right Away 

Once you whip up your pretty punch, you want to serve it up shortly after. The reason I say this is because it will begin to melt a bit and as the ice melts it can get watered down and of course the consistency changes. 

Just blend up a batch, pour your cups and what you don’t use at the moment keep in the freezer. Then mix well before pouring more glasses. Just don’t leave it in the freezer for too long, or it could harden up.
