Some women pride themselves in being guys’ girls when it comes to drinking. These are the ladies who make a big deal about exclusively sipping whiskey or craft beer. They turn their noses up at the mention of flavored spirits, abhor cutesy cocktail names, and even roll their eyes at vodka sodas. To this (and them) I say whatever. Being a girl is fun. And shamelessly indulging in pink, fruity, sparkly, drinks–if you’re into thing–every now and then is one of the perks that comes with being a member of our gender. Embrace your femininity and get tipsy with this recipe for the ultimate girl drink.
